Maryland basketball vs. North Carolina: talk about the game

Good afternoon.

Maryland faces No. 5 North Carolina on Saturday (TV: ESPN). Terrapins Coach Mark Turgeon faces his mentor, Tar Heels Coach Roy Williams, for the first time. And there’s still lots of people talking about the new ACC scheduling format, mainly the fact that the annual home-and-home series with Duke will no longer be an annual affair when Syracuse and Pittsburgh arrive in the conference.

And it looks as if Tar Heels leading scorer Harrison Barnes is going to play despite a bum ankle.


Record: 13-8, 3-4 ACC.

RPI rank: 98 (though that win over Notre Dame is looking better and better).

SOS rank: 76.

Ken Pomeroy rank: 142.


Record: 19-3, 6-1.

RPI rank: 11

SOS rank: 28.

Ken Pomeroy rank: 8.

This is your open thread. Feel free to offer up predictions, reactions, celebrations, etc., in the comments.
