Maryland's Probable Starters:

G - Adrian Bowie (Sr.) - 6'2", 190 lbs., Greenbelt, Md. - 8.7 PPG, 3.4 RPG
G - Sean Mosley (Jr.) - 6'4", 210 lbs., Baltimore, Md. - 8.1 PPG, 4.2 RPG
G-F - Cliff Tucker (Sr.) - 6'6", 205 lbs., El Paso, Tx. - 11.2 PPG, 3.8 RPG
F - Dino Gregory (Sr.) - 6'7", 230 lbs., Baltimore, Md. - 6.7 PPG, 5.9 RPG
F - Jordan Williams (So.) - 6'10", 260 lbs., Torrington, Ct. - 17.7 PPG, 11.8 RPG

The Eagles begin ACC play with a trip to the Comcast Center. BC has had some success recently with their trips to the Comcast Center, winning each of their last two trips to College Park (2-1 all-time at the Comcast Center). Hopefully BC will be able to contain Maryland sophomore phenom Jordan Williams in the front court, and they'll get some help with the return of Corey Raji. Also, keep an eye on Josh Southern as he looks to maintain the hot streak (12-13 shooting) he's been on over the last two games.

The Terps should be a good test for this young Eagles team.
