College basketball countdown: No. 43 Maryland
Nice piece by USA Today on Maryland. They don't really talk about Jake Layman at all, which I think they'll regret by March. They have Maryland as a 10 seed in the tourney but admit they could finish much higher. I think Maryland ends up as a solid 5 or 6 seed, honestly. -DT
