The Canes kick off Game 20 at Maryland which will be the first meeting this season between the two teams. Maryland (currently tied for first in the ACC at 13-5 for the season and 3-1 in conference play) is coming off a significant win over NC State 88-64. Miami is currently 1-4 in conference play and 15-4 overall and in last place. With their sluggish starts at Virginia Tech and Virginia and inability to close out Boston College at home, look for the Canes to have their hands full with the Terps. If the Canes cannot control Landon Milbourne and Greivas Vasquez and play sloppy undisciplined basketball this could get ugly quick - although surprisingly the Terps are 1-4 against Frank Haith the past 3 years. The Canes are going to need their Seniors, Dwayne Collins, Adrian Thomas and James Dews to step it up.
