Seen and heard last night at Cole Field House:
DEEP DIXON Juan Dixon had four 3-pointers and is now Maryland's all-time leader with 188 in his career. Johnny Rhodes had the previous high, sinking 186 treys from 1993 to '96. Dixon also had three steals, and needs six to become the 27th player in NCAA history to record 300 thefts.
When it was announced to the crowd, Dixon got a standing ovation.
DISHING PAST TERRELL Steve Blake moved up to second on Maryland's all-time assists list with 13 dishes. The junior point guard has 597 in his career, passing Terrell Stokes (590 from 1996 to '99). Keith Gatlin is the program's all-time leader with 649 from 1984 to '88.
HI NORM Gary Williams won his 103rd ACC game and moved into a tie for eighth all-time in conference wins with ex-N.C. State coach Norm Sloan. Williams needs three more conference victories to match former Duke coach Vic Bubas.
JOHNNY U IN THE HOUSE Baltimore Colts Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas was in Cole for the game, apparently choosing to see the Terps rather than venture to Pittsburgh to watch the Baltimore Ravens. Ravens minority owner Steve Bisciotti was also in his customary front-row seat, after quickly jetting back from his team's loss.
SHY-TOWN FOR NOW Clemson coach Larry Shyatt is in the fourth season of a not-so successful career at the South Carolina school. Shyatt has an 11-38 record in the ACC, and his only winning season came in his first year. The top Tiger most likely needs a winning season and at least an NCAA tournament bid to keep his gig.
