It was like watching the season in miniature.
The Maryland Terrapins suffered a disappointing- no, make that heartbreaking- loss on the road to the Virginia Cavaliers in overtime 61-58.
Patrick Holloway started his basketball day as a deep reserve on George Mason's bench, having played only five minutes in the Patriots previous game.
Like the good ones do at whatever they do, Sherrod Wright took time to enhance his craft.
Maryland impressed in their last game, a 77-57 victory over Northwestern in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
