Florida State at Maryland

When/where: 3 p.m.; Comcast Center, College Park, Md.

TV/radio: Ch. 44; 1470-AM

Records: FSU 14-11, 3-7 ACC; Maryland 16-9, 6-4

Notable: With six regular-season games left, the Seminoles are running out of time to make a run toward the NCAA bubble. A win on a campus where they haven't won since Feb. 14, 2001, would help. ... F Ryan Reid, ejected from Thursday night's loss to Wake Forest for a flagrant foul, is expected to start and needs to play well against a powerful inside combination of F James Gist (16.1 ppg, 8.0 rpg) and C Bambale Osby (11.7 ppg, 7.0 rpg). ... The Seminoles will have to ride guards Toney Douglas (15.3 ppg), the ACC's leader in steals (70), and Jason Rich (13.4 ppg), who has scored 20 or more in three of the past four games. ... The Terrapins won four straight before losing at No. 2 Duke on Wednesday. ... Maryland leads the series 25-9.
