Although the Terps are playing on the road today, the upcoming 1 PM face-off in Chapel Hill between the only teams undefeated in ACC play is so important that even the D.C. and Baltimore papers have published pre-game articles. The Baltimore Sun's Milton Kent has a true preview of the game (plus video interviews of the Terps), focusing on the Tar Heels' deadly pressing and trapping abilities and Maryland's consequent need to slow things down.
Meanwhile, the Washington Post's Kathy Orton and the Washington Times' Mike Fratto divvied up assignments to write about the Terps' incredible front court, giving us feature stories on Harp and Lang, respectively.
Your assignment, of course, is to get all these articles read before 10 AM, at which point the BasketCases expect you to be sitting in front of your TV, watching Under the Shell. And that, of course, is just a warmup for the big event at 1 PM!
