Syracuse Visits Comcast Monday Night
The Terrapins take on their sixth nationally ranked opponent and third in four games, when the Orangeman visit the Comcast Center on Monday night. It is the first and last meeting between the Terps and Syracuse as members of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Maryland is planning Flash Mob II on Monday night, with gates opening exclusively for students at 430 pm.
Remember what happened last time a top-ranked team came into Comcast…? http://t.co/ugEvNolxS3 What do we have up our sleeve this Monday?

Syracuse has dropped two straight since starting the season 25-0. The Orange losing to Boston College on Wednesday and North Carolina on Saturday. Syracuse is led by freshman guard Tyler Ennis and preseason ACC player of the year C.J. Fair. Fair and Maryland’s Nick Faust are childhood friends from Baltimore.
The game is critical for Syracuse, as they now trail Virginia in the ACC standings. Virginia leads the Orangemen by one game in the loss column and host Syracuse on Saturday in Charlottesville. Maryland is tied with NC State in 7th place, a game back of Clemson. The Terrapins travel to Clemson on Sunday, before closing out the season the following week at home against Virginia Tech and Virginia.

Things are looking up for the Maryland basketball program with a top-5 recruiting class arriving in the Fall. For the first time since Travis Garrison a decade ago, a McDonald’s All-American in the group.
