CORAL GABLES, FLA. — Happy Sunday from the BankUnited Center on the palm tree-filled campus of Miami, where the Terrapins (13-2, 1-1 ACC) will tip off against the Hurricanes (11-3, 2-0 ACC) at 8 p.m.
Game will be broadcast on ESPNU and the usual radio affiliates. As usual, check out the pregame reading below, toss your thoughts into the discussion thread and find me on Twitter.
UPDATE: Seth Allen and James Padgett will start tonight for Maryland alongside Alex Len, Nick Faust and Dez Wells. Allen receives his second career start at point guard, replacing junior Pe’Shon Howard, while Padgett returns to the starting lineup after coming off the bench for the past three games.
Shaquille Cleare was supposed to start, but back spasms held the freshman center out of Saturday’s practice. He warmed up with the Terps, and is expected to play.
Miami goes with Shane Larkin, Durand Scott, Trey McKinney Jones, Kenny Kadji and Julian Gamble as its starting five.
