Isaiah Thomas comes to College Park this evening to take on the Terps with his 3-6 Panthers squad.

I'm beyond the point of expecting any easy victories this season and I think tonight will be no exception.  Expect a game that is played with no more than a single digit lead for 40 minutes.

The big news tonight was that there were rumors that Pe'Shon Howard may play for a few minutes.  As exciting as that would have been; I'd just soon exercise extreme caution and wait until the games resume after Finals Week on the 23rd.

Apparently, Howard and the team doctors agreed with me and last night Howard  confirmed that he would return on December 23rd.  We'd all love to see this team with a true point guard running the offiense.  Pe'Shon is just that and his introduction to the offense will fundamentally change the team for the better.  Mark Turgeon has since put some question to Howard returning on the 23rd.

Whenever that starts, the Terps will be one more step closer to be a legitimate contender for the postseason.

Maryland continues its six-game homestand with a Wednesday-night meeting with FIU. The Terrapins are currently on a two-game winning streak for the first time this season, having defeated Notre Dame on Dec. 4 and Mount St. Mary's on Dec. 7. Maryland is also in a stretch in which it plays one game (FIU) in 16 days between Dec. 7 and 23 (vs. Radford), partly due to Finals Week.

The Terrapins have seven of the next eight games at home, with the lone road trip coming on Jan. 8 for the Atlantic Coast Conference opener at NC State. Following the trip to Raleigh, Maryland returns home for league games against Wake Forest (Jan. 11) and Georgia Tech (Jan. 15).
