So what do you see in common between this:
... and this?
Well, besides the fact Maryland won both games on last-second shots?
Take a close look, and you'll see the three officials --- Roger Ayers, Mike Eades and Raymond Styons --- worked both games.
Those games --- a Feb. 20, 2010, contest against Georgia Tech best known in College Park as the Cliff Tucker Game, and last night's Maryland-N.C. State showdown decided by an Alex Len tip-in --- stand as the Terrapins' most recent victories on last-second shots.
They also happen to be the only instances Ayers, Eades and Styons have worked together on a Maryland game.
It's nothing more than a coincidence, but it sure is a quirky one.
