Last night from Comcast Center:

SEEN AND HEARD

Veteran referee Jim Burr wasn’t going to let this exhibition get out of control. He slapped Maryland forward Travis Garrison with a technical foul with 2:10 left before halftime after Garrison got into a shoving match with Virginia Union forward Chris Greene. The 6-foot-8 Garrison and 6-5 Greene got their arms tied up going for a loose ball underneath Maryland’s basket. Both Garrison and Greene exchanged pushes, but Burr whistled Garrison for retaliating.

KEY NUMBER

16 MARYLAND TURNOVERS COMMITTED IN THE FIRST HALF. IN SATURDAY’S 31-POINT BLOWOUT OF ST. FRANCIS-XAVIER, THE TERPS COMMITTED JUST 12 IN THE ENTIRE GAME.

KEY PLAY

THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE GAME WAS VIRGINIA UNION SENIOR GUARD DARIUS HARGROVE’S SOARING ONE-HAND TOMAHAWK JAM. WITH MARYLAND LEADING 16-12, HARGROVE RELEASED AND BEAT THE TERPS DOWN THE FLOOR. THE 6-FOOT-4 HARGROVE, WHO HAD A 30-POINT PERFORMANCE AGAINST VCU THE NIGHT BEFORE, FINISHED HIS BREAKAWAY WITH AUTHORITY WITH HIS HEAD NEARLY SCRAPING THE RIM.
