Game Analysis: The Hoyas, who have won five straight, defeated Pitt, 65-53, at Pittburgh Civic Center earlier this year. The Panthers last beat Hoyas in 1982-83 season. Patrick Ewing leads the Hoyas with 15.7 ppg in Big East competition and 10.3 rpg in league play, followed by Billy Martin (12.7 ppg, 6.5 rpg). Hoyas are improving at finding good shots in half-court offense when a fast break fails to materialize. For the second time this season, Pittsburgh 6-9 F Charlie Smith was named Big East freshman of the week. Smith leads the Panthers in scoring (14.9) and rebounding (8.0). Before Friday's 84-63 loss to St. John's, the Panthers had won five straight.

Game Analysis: Tech has beaten the Terrapins twice this season: by 70-69 in final of Rainbow Classic when G Mark Price hit a layup in closing seconds, and by 72-60 at Cole Field House Feb. 2. Coach Bobby Cremins has a 7-2 edge over Maryland. Price (14 ppg) leads the Yellow Jackets in scoring. To win Coach Lefty Driesell's 500th game, Terrapins must find way to counter Tech's height advantage and get Adrian Branch back into top offensive form. Maryland has used three starting lineups the last three games and Driesell might opt for another change tonight.
