Good afternoon.

Maryland takes on Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon (DMV TV: WTTG-5, WNUV-54).

Terrapins Coach Mark Turgeon has been striving to bring out a sense of aggressiveness from forward James Padgett, Liz Clarke writes. The Yellow Jackets, meanwhile, come into the game short-handed: Leading scorer Glen Rice Jr. is still suspended, backup center Nate Hicks is still out with mononucleosis and guard Jason Morris is battling a foot injury.
