Counting on a big weekend from: Terrell Stoglin. The sophomore guard led the ACC scoring, inside and outside the league, and accounts for 31 percent of Maryland's offense.

Number to know: 498. Field-goal attempts by Stoglin, 257 more shots than anyone else on the team, and 81 more than anyone else in the ACC (UNC's Harrison Barnes is second with 417).

Hotlanta or Notlanta?: Not. Maryland's going to be good again, and real soon, but the Terps likely will be little more than a nuisance to UNC if they beat Wake in the opening round.
