The Maryland Terrapins (6-3) take on the Radford Highlanders (3-10) at Comcast Center this Friday evening with a welcome addition to their lineup: point guard Pe'Shon Howard will make his season debut, returning from a broken foot he suffered during preseason workouts. His presence allows Terrell Stoglin, the team's leading scorer, to shift to his more natural position of shooting guard.

Maryland has won its last three games, most recently against the Fla. International Golden Panthers, 65-61, on Dec. 14. The Terps recovered from a seven-point halftime deficit to pick up the victory, with Stoglin scoring 20 points and Ashton Pankey adding 13, 11 during Maryland's second-half comeback.

Radford is mired in a nine-game losing streak, and hasn't won since Nov. 16. Tuesday, it fell to the Eastern Michigan Eagles, 52-48, despite 18 points apiece from Jareal Smith and R.J. Price. The seven other Highlanders managed only 12 points on 4-of-24 shooting.

Tipoff between the Terps and Highlanders is set for 8 PM on ESPN3.com and the Terrapin Sports Radio Network.
