A quick pregame note from Comcast Center: Steve Goins will not dress because of a lower left leg injury.

A team spokesman said the freshman underwent an MRI exam yesterday, and results have not been returned yet.


So Goins, with his left foot in a boot, will take a place next to Jerome Burney (with his right foot in a boot) at the end of the Maryland bench. Hope the Terps got the group discount for the special footwear.

Goins has one point and two rebounds in nine minutes over three games. The Chicago native hasn’t played since a minute of garbage time against Gonzaga last month.

This was probably one of his best chances left on the schedule of receiving a look. Instead, the Terps are down to 11 men for the day.
