Even though I’ve liked past Maryland jerseys better, I love that their jerseys incorporate Maryland’s flag. (I think South Carolina’s palmetto flag edges Maryland’s design for the country’s best state flag.) I was not, however, a fan of their alternate yellow home jerseys, though I believe they only lost once this season while wearing them.

I also like that Missouri native Tyler Hansbrough chose to play basketball for North Carolina. It’s pretty fitting, considering the state already has a Greensboro (where UNC is playing its first two rounds of NCAA tournament games), Goldsboro, Asheboro, Tarboro, Roxboro, Roseboro, Wadesboro and a Bladenboro. Hansbrough just sounds like another North Carolina town.
By the way, Maryland tore Cal up in the second half. Watch out for those No. 10 Terps! And UNC broke into triple digits with its 101-58 win over Radford.
On a non-ACC note, UConn trampled all over Chattanooga, winning by a whopping 56 points! The Huskies won 103-47 with associate head coach George Blaney at the helm while ailing head coach Jim Calhoun recouperated.
