Why does Maryland lead ACC in fouls? It's simple

Remember that statistic about Maryland leading the ACC is fouls called against them? It came courtesty of CSN stats guru Mike Lynch, who found that the Terrapins were called for 20.9 per game in ACC play, close to a full foul more than the next team, Wake Forest, which piles up an even 20. Conspiracy theorists rejoiced. Here’s the proof, right?! But there’s actually a pretty...

One of the few positives in Monday’s loss at North Carolina State came in the first half, when Turgeon went to a more traditional lineup that featured a power forward and center. Though neither junior forward Jon Graham (Calvert Hall) or freshman center Damonte Dodd are thought of as scorers, both were Monday, combining for 10 points in 27 minutes.

Terps PG Roddy Peters struggling through mistakes, working on jump shot
