The Maryland Terrapins will catch a major break as they prepare for a key ACC showdown against Miami. Hurricanes center Kenny Kadji arrived to the game with a head injury, according to Miami radio man Joseph Zagacki. He will not play and will be replaced in the lineup by DeQuan Jones.
Kadji is third on the team in scoring, averaging 12.5 points per game, and is second on the team in rebounding, averaging 5.7 per game. Jones is averaging 6.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game in 14.4 minutes per game.
Zagacki also reports that Hurricanes coach Jim Larranaga will not be in attendance due to illness. Larranaga, of course, is the former longtime coach of George Mason.
UPDATE: Larranaga showed up and will coach.
