Seen and heard last night at Comcast Center:

BIAS REMEMBERED — Copies of late Maryland forward Len Bias’ No. 34 jersey are being sold in the Comcast Center gift shop and Web site, a striking turnaround from many years of university officials distancing the Terrapins from his June 1986 cocaine overdose. Bias’ death led to the departure of coach Lefty Driesell and several other school officials. However, athletic director Debbie Yow approved a recent offer to include him as part of a national collection of throwback jerseys.

“We would never leave him out,” Yow said. “It would be such a disservice to him pretending he never existed.”

It’s pricey, though. Bias’ jersey is $419.99 compared to $54.99 for a traditional Terps jersey.

NO DOWN TIME — George Mason arrived 46 minutes before tipoff after getting stuck in traffic. Players dressed before leaving the Fairfax school but still needed to warm up quickly.

IMAGE THE KEY — Forward Travis Garrison has new tattoos for inspiration. “Never” is inked on his left arm and “Satisfied” on his right arm.

— Rick Snider
