ATLANTA — Good evening from the spacious, domed, recently renovated McCamish Pavilion at Georgia Tech, where the Yellow Jackets (14-12, 4-10 ACC) host Maryland (19-8, 7-7 ACC). The Terps are going for their 20th win of the season, looking to keep their already-slim NCAA tournament chances alive.
Maryland’s last visit to Atlanta was a mixed bag. The Terps lost 63-61, arguably their worst defeat of Coach Mark Turgeon’s debut season. Immediately afterward, however, Turgeon went and recruited Charles Mitchell at nearby Wheeler High School. So all wasn’t totally lost.
Recruiting aside, a little more is at stake this time for the Terps. You know the drill. Pregame reading is below. Discussion thread is open. I’m on Twitter. Commence basketball.
