Game is at 8:00 and TV is ESPN3. Our preview is here. The big story, of course, is that guy up there, Pe'Shon Howard. Secondary storyline: how many people show up? There seems to be more interest from the fanbase this game thanks to Pe's return, but given that it's winter break I'm not confident Scott Van Pelt won't yell at us again.

Random, Baseless Prediction: Ashton Pankey alley-oop. Because Pe' is back and why not?

Prediction: I know better than to predict a blowout. I also now know better than to predict a close game when I really mean to predict to a blowout. So I'm not being sneaky when I say Maryland by 7.

Also, because this was a lot of fun last time: let's guess how Pe'Shon Howard performs in his first game back. Give me his total of points plus assists (ie, 3 points + 2 assists = 5) with the tiebreaker of minutes played. My volley: 7 (3 + 4, though the breakdown doesn't matter for the purposes of this) in 21 minutes.

Go.
