ATLANTA —- Maryland has a lineup tweak of note to pass along here just before tip-off.

Sophomore guard Adrian Bowie came down with a fever this morning at the team hotel. He participated in pregame workouts, but Eric Hayes will slide into his starting spot. Bowie still figures to have a decent chance to play, but probably isn’t at full strength.


An interesting thing to note here is that Maryland will be as big as they’ve been at the start of a game at any point since the beginning of December. Hayes will probably get the nod at the point to open things up, but it would come as no surprise if Greivis Vasquez handles the ball as much as any point in the last several weeks.
