"I'm not going down without a fight."

Motivation won't be a problem for Ben McCauley:

"Desperate times call for desperate measures, and we have to do whatever we can to make a little run here and finish strong,'' he said. ``It's my last two regular-season games of my career. I'm not going down without a fight and I'm going to make sure all my teammates know that.

"You have to take initiative, tell guys to be on their game and if they're not ready to play, get the heck out and get someone in there that can play. That's, I think, the mentality we have to take from here on out.''

But the other guys? McCauley tried to get them going in the first half of the Maryland game and it didn't work. It's difficult to hear anything when you're on another planet. It's just a matter of logistics, as this handy diagram explains:
