Seen and heard last night at Cole Field House:
MOUTON'S A STARTER After a one-game hiatus, Byron Mouton returned to the starting lineup. He played but didn't start Sunday night against Detroit, a week after his older brother had been shot to death in Houston. Mouton not only played, but he put in a courageous 19 minutes and tied a season-high with 13 points.
EVEN THE MISSES ARE GOOD The most exciting plays of the game, at least in the first half, came on missed dunks. Chris Wilcox bricked two dunks in the first 11 minutes, both on attempts that started eight to 10 feet away from the basket. The first miss bounded out to halfcourt, leading to a Monmouth layup. On the second, Wilcox was called for a charge. Still, the plays left Terps fans agog at the display of athleticism. Monmouth's Blake Hamilton also missed a pair, though of a much easier variety.
NOTES Maryland announced that home games against William & Mary (Dec. 27) and Norfolk State (Jan. 3) will both be televised by Comcast SportsNet. That means every remaining Maryland game this year will be televised. … Among the Terps' five home dates this season, only one (against Illinois) has been a sellout. … Williams won his 250th game as Maryland coach. … The Terps shot 76.7 percent from the line (23-for-30).
