Last night at Littlejohn Coliseum in Clemson, S.C.:


Junior guard Mike Jones hobbled off with 5:46 remaining and did not return with what Maryland coach Gary Williams described as cramping after the 89-77 loss to Clemson. Jones had an ice pack on his right knee for the rest of the game.

“I’m feeling all right,” Jones said. “I don’t think I did anything severe to it. It’s maybe a little hyperextension. I don’t think it’s anything severe. I think I’ll definitely be back.”

Jones scored 19 points in 25 minutes for the Terps. Point guard D.J. Strawberry (illness) also was limited against the Tigers.


4 Consecutive losses for Maryland against Clemson, matching the Terps’ longest skid in the 130-game series. Maryland also dropped four straight to the Tigers from 1949 to 1951.


“I’m not giving you my postgame feelings every game. What, do you have a meter there that measures what I am? I’m upset because we lost the game. I’m a coach. You’re supposed to be upset when you lose.”

— Maryland’s Gary Williams after a reporter began to ask about Williams’ reaction to a Feb. 2 loss to North Carolina. Williams said he was “disgusted” with his team after that game.
