Coming in hot: Freshman point guard Terrell Stoglin has averaged 19.1 points over his last eight games to provide the Terrapins with perimeter scoring to complement center Jordan Williams.
Number to know: 3, number of consecutive Maryland losses to end the regular season, the first time since 2005 the Terps enter the tournament with a three-game losing streak.
Contender or pretender: The Terrapins are 8-0 against N.C. State coach Sidney Lowe, so it's unlikely that Maryland will fall in the opening round. But Maryland isn't defending well enough to make a deep tournament run.
