Just heard on FS 1 that Q is out again for this game.

He is probably more accurate than the studio guys on FS1

Hopefully, the local sports reporter who covers X is right. I suspect X probably insinuated Q wasn't playing until they handed the lineups in for the game. There's no reason for X to disclose it any sooner. I would think the line would be closer to 12 without Q. He's a very good perimeter defender, and his presence will allow Scruggs to play off the ball and start his offense in more optimal positions.

Maryland thumped OSU at OSU.
That warms my heart

If X hits some outside jumpers to prevent sagging, Jones and Hankins should be able to score. Nova only has one legitimate post guy.

Yup,

And I don't want Scruggs guarding Boothe. He'll have 3 fouls before the half.

1st war even
8-8
X is pounding it inside which they should.
Couple of misses by Marshall and Jones that should have been made.
But a good start

X has to weather Nova's 4 to 5 8-10 point runs. If Jones didn't miss 2 bunnies, it's only a 4 point game.
