The beast

Maryland plays Carolina tough. Good enough?

Gary Williams doesn't think so. He

"doesn't want to rely on a narrow loss to North Carolina to impress the NCAA selection comittee."

The most encouraging sign for Carolina: Sean May continues to step up inside, producing his sixth consecutive double-double, not to mention the game saving block on Mike Jones.

Maryland's Chris McCray sums it up:

"Sean May was a beast inside."

The Herald-Sun's Neil Amato:

Jones "was met in the lane by May, who went up and made the sort of athletic play his heavier, less-rested self wouldn't have done in the past."

Roy Williams joked around before praising May's work ethic:

"He's about as athletic as a small elephant. Nah, he worked hard. He does have better bounce, he does have quicker reactions, he does have a lower percentage of body fat. You get those things done because you work at it. He really did. We'd have weight sessions at 4 (p.m.) and he'd come in at 8 in the morning and get another one."
