Just getting ready to board a flight to Atlanta for tonight’s Maryland-Georgia Tech game.

It’s obviously a big one for Maryland, which does not have much wiggle room left in its flickering NCAA tournament chase.


Losing to a team with a 1-7 league record is simply not an option at this stage.

The phrase “must-win” is far too well-worn and a little tedious, especially since it is thrown around with great frequency. But the Terrapins (14-8, 3-5 ACC) would have a harrowing path if they can’t complete the season sweep of the Yellow Jackets.

More to come in a few more hours once I make it into my hotel.
