Yesterday at Comcast Center


Maryland forward Ekene Ibekwe noticed throughout the game all of his teammates were guarded tightly when he had the ball on the wing, and he took advantage of the open space with a drive and dunk with 3:09 left. He completed the three-point play with a foul shot to put the Terrapins up 84-80.


6 3-pointers made by Georgia Tech in 21 attempts, only the third time in 14 games Maryland held an opponent to less than nine 3-pointers. The Terps had limited only four opponents (Arkansas, George Washington, Delaware State and Virginia Tech) to 28.6 percent or worse from beyond the arc.


“I guarantee he couldn’t have made that play three weeks ago. That’s what playing a lot of minutes does for you.”

— Maryland coach Gary Williams on guard Mike Jones’ block of Zam Fredrick’s 3-pointer at the end of regulation. Jones joined the starting lineup when Chris McCray was declared academically ineligible last month.
