Maryland forward Dave Dickerson is questionable for Wednesday's game at Georgia Tech after having a front tooth extracted yesterday, Coach Bob Wade said.

But forward Derrick Lewis, who twisted an ankle in the closing seconds of the Duke game, practiced yesterday "with no complaints," according to Wade, and is expected to start Wednesday.

"Dave had a fractured front tooth and had to be put under to have it removed," Wade said. "He is under heavy medication and he is groggy."

Dickerson, who is averaging 5.8 points as a reserve, was hit in the mouth in Saturday's 90-83 loss to Duke at Cole Field House and did not practice yesterday.

On Brian Davis, the 6-6 guard/forward from Bladensburg High School who decided over the weekend to attend Duke over Maryland, Wade said, "We just wish him well."

Bladensburg Coach Bob Patterson said the opportunity to play right away was better for Davis at Duke. "They're looking at two or three other people," Patterson said of Maryland. "They do have some young players at guard. They're bringing in {Crossland High School's} Walter Williams, who is probably a small forward. I think everybody thinks they'll get {DeMatha's} Jerrod Mustaf, and I think he might want to play at three {small forward}. Brian didn't know how soon he would get a shot. That's how this game goes."
