Duke, Maryland meet again with ACC title on line

BY foxsports • March 2, 2010

When Maryland's schedule came out, forward Landon Milbourne quickly checked to see when the Terrapins were hosting Duke.

The game against the No. 4 Blue Devils is always the most anticipated matchup on their home schedule. This season, however, it's far more important than most.

Soon after the fans salute Milbourne, Greivis Vasquez and Eric Hayes on Senior Day, the 22nd-ranked Terps will focus Wednesday night on avenging an earlier loss to Duke and gaining a share of first place in the ACC.

Picked by the media covering the league to finish fifth, Maryland already has clinched second place and can move up with a win over its bitter rival. The Terrapins have won five straight and are 14-1 at home, but they've lost six straight to Duke - including 77-56 on Feb. 13.
