Yesterday at MCI Center:

24.6

George Mason’s field-goal percentage

KEY PLAYER

Maryland forward Nik Caner-Medley scored 20 points with five rebounds in 24 minutes. Caner-Medley scored nine points during the Terps’ early 16-0 run.

SEEN AND HEARD

“Rock and Roll, Part II” was heard at a Maryland game for the first time since being banned by school officials this season. George Mason’s band played it, but was roundly ignored by Terps fans. Maryland fans may have gained much notoriety nationwide for a profane chant during last season’s game against Duke, but it was the “Patriot Platoon” that hurled obscenities over officiating and a chant concerning Maryland forward Nik Caner-Medley’s offseason legal problem. … The Mason and Maryland bands couldn’t stop playing over each other, creating a lot of noise but little harmony. … Former Redskins P.A. announcer Phil Hochberg worked the games.
