COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- The vibe in Comcast Center throughout Wednesday night was that Maryland badly needed to beat North Carolina State. You might even say the Terrapins collective backs were against the wall.
They were 0-2 in the ACC and trailing by a point ready to inbound the ball near midcourt with 5 seconds left on a night when scoring was at a premium. Surely they were headed to a dreaded 0-3 start while taking residence in a huge, deep hole not consistent with most teams darting toward NCAA Tournament inclusion.
Call it a pass or shot, it doesnt really matter much at this point, because when junior point guard PeShon Howards runner from just outside the left side of the lane appeared to fall short of the rim with the clock winding down, the Terps were a certain goner. Or so it seemed for a split second.

So here is Maryland’s chance Wednesday
night to reappear...

North Carolina State played excellent defense, never let down after falling into an early hole and staged a fine comeback in the second half.
Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to offset an uncharacteristically miserable offensive showing by the best-shooting team in the country.
