The ACC Tournament started well for the Maryland Terrapins, even before the game tipped off.

At around 11:45 a.m. ET, big man Charles Mitchell (Marietta, Ga./Wheeler) phoned in his commitment to Mark Turgeon, about an hour before the Terps tipped against Wake Forest.

Florida State, Seton Hall and Tennessee had intentions of signing Mitchell, but Maryland won out.
