Yesterday at Comcast Center


“Have you guys been practicing?”

— Exasperated Maryland student sitting near midcourt in the middle of the first half. The Terrapins committed 20 turnovers and shot 39.4 percent in the game, adding to the validity of the question.


3 Nonconference home games lost by Maryland in coach Gary Williams’ 17 seasons. The Terps fell to Coppin State in 1989 at Cole Field House and to Florida in 2002 at Comcast Center before yesterday’s debacle against Manhattan.


Manhattan guard Jeff Xavier shot over and drove through the Terrapins, scoring a career-high 31 points with an array of absurd 3-pointers and whirling-dervish moves in the lane to help the Jaspers advance to face Old Dominion tomorrow.
