Last night at RBC Center in Raleigh, N.C.:

BY THE NUMBERS

1 Field goal made by Maryland in a span of 7:47 in the first half. The Terrapins went 1-for-13 from the floor during the stretch, but Eric Hayes’ 3-pointer to snap the spell restored Maryland’s lead to seven points.

QUOTABLE

“He told me to be quiet, and then I said something else and he got me. We were both talking, but he got me. I thought it was a fair call.”

— Maryland guard D.J. Strawberry on the technical foul referee Reggie Greenwood assessed for Strawberry’s jawing with N.C. State’s Courtney Fells.

SEEN AND HEARD

It was a decidedly late-arriving crowd on Valentine’s Day. There appeared to be about 2,000 fans in the stands about 10 minutes before tipoff, though it quickly filled up to more than half capacity by the start of the game. Still, it was easy to hear instructions Maryland coach Gary Williams and assistant Michael Adams shouted to their players in the opening minutes.
