Florida State Seminoles vs. Maryland men's basketball preview



FSU vs. Maryland

When/where: Noon; Donald L. Tucker Center, Tallahassee

TV/radio: Ch. 44; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 14-1, 1-1 ACC; Maryland 12-4, 1-1

Notable: The Seminoles got an offensive boost with the insertion of senior F Uche Echefu and sophomore PG Derwin Kitchen into the starting lineup for the first time Tuesday at N.C. State; Echefu had a double double (12 points, 11 rebounds), while Kitchen had nine points, four rebounds and three assists. … The key stat for the Seminoles figures to be turnovers; they averaged nearly 17 in nonconference games but 13 in two ACC games. … The Terrapins, led by do-everything junior G Greivis Vasquez (17.9 points per game, 6.2 rebounds), is coming off a 62-60 loss at Miami on Wednesday. This will be just their second true road game. FSU is 7-2 at home with the losses coming to Pittsburgh and Duke. … Maryland leads the series 26-9 but has lost its past three games in Tallahassee.
