Steve Yanda is on his way to Pasadena to cover the BCS title game, so in his stead (and now that our blogging-software issues have been resolved, knock-wood), here's some Terrapins/ACC links to tide you over.
In case you missed the news yesterday, Maryland sophomore forward Jin Soo Choi is leaving the team to return to Korea.
In happier news, senior guard Greivis Vasquez is one of 20 finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, given to the nation's top point guard. Joining him from the ACC are Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney and Duke's Jon Scheyer.
On to No. 18 Florida State, which travels to College Park for the Terrapins' ACC opener on Sunday evening. Corey Clark of the Tallahassee Democrat writes that defense has been the Seminoles' strong point this season. Florida State is allowing teams to shoot only 33.7 percent this season, the best mark in the nation. The Seminoles (13-2, 1-0 ACC), who have won seven straight, also rank eighth in the country in blocked shots and ninth in points allowed.
Wake Forest point guard Ish Smith does just about everything right -- except shoot free throws. He's shooting 43 percent. The Terrapins travel to Winston-Salem on Tuesday for their ACC road opener.
The Charlotte Observer breaks down the ACC as conference play begins in earnest.
