Two big stories headlined the Atlantic Coast Conference news last week. The first was No. 13/16 Miami's bounce back from a shaky start to hand No. 5 Maryland its first loss of the 2011-12 season, 75-63.
It sure didn't look like an upset in the making during one of the worst first-half performances of the Hurricanes' season, however. The 'Canes fared well enough for the first eight minutes, quickly running up a 12-point (22-10) lead, but then proceeded to squander it, missing an unprecedented 21 straight shots as the Terps held them scoreless from the field for the next 10 minutes, while Maryland ran off on a 15-1 run.
