#2 Maryland vs Wisconsin

The Terps are back to Big Ten grind this evening when a frisky Wisconsin team comes to town.

Maryland handled the Badgers in Madison except the Terps forgot to play the last three minutes of the game and almost had to go to overtime. Thankfully, Melo Trimble bailed them out with last second heroics.

Hopefully, tonight won't be so dramatic. Wisconsin is decent (coming in to the game, their RPI is 60) but the #2 team in the country should beat them by 8-10 points.

Maryland had been in a shooting slump of late so I think everyone is anxious to see some threes go down. For me, I'd like to see them continue to build on the last few games where we've seen better rebounding and less turnovers. I continue to believe that the Terps can't be beat if they limit the other team's free possessions.

This upcoming stretch (home vs WI, at MN, home vs MI) should equate to 3 wins. The Terps will have momentum heading into a big away game against Purdue at the end of Feb. a win there and the Terps are guaranteed at least a 2 seed in the dance.

#2 Maryland vs Bowie State

If you are confused by this game on the slate, it might be helpful to just think of this as a mid season scrimmage. The timing couldn't be better.  The Terps are pretty tired and could use a week off.  From Turgeon's point of view, might as well have a scrimmage in there so they don't get stale. For the record, this game basically doesn't count. [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs #18 Purdue

Maryland escaped Lincoln with a win on Wednesday and it has left many Terp fans feeling a bit uneasy. The Terps are committing turnovers at an alarming rate, particularly on the road, and it is preventing them from easily beating average teams. Robert Carter also had his worst game of the season and that made things a bit more difficult as wel [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs Nebraska

Maryland travels to Nebraska tonight with the hope of building the recent road success at Ohio State over the weekend.  We can't take any road games for granted and Nebraska recently beat Michigan State in the Breslin Center so don't expect a cake walk tonight. That said, a loss would be a massive disappointment. Separately, this is one weird [...] Read More »

Layman leads Terps past OSU

That was as complete a performance as I have seen from Jake as a Terp. He has played stout defense all year, but this game was the first where I have really seen him take over and get into a groove offensively. I didn't get to watch the Iowa game (I was in a place with no WiFi or TV, in the year 2016!), but from everything I read his defense made t [...] Read More »

#8 Maryland vs Ohio State

If you know anything about college basketball and are a fan of the Maryland Terrapins, today's game should terrify you. The Terps won a huge game against the number 3 team in the nation on Thursday night and now must travel to visit a team that they pasted by 35 points a few weeks ago. This is a trap game. Many teams would look past the B [...] Read More »

Can Mark Turgeon get the job done?

I want to start this off by saying I have faith in Mark Turgeon. Maybe less faith than I had two months ago, but faith nonetheless. He took over a once-really good program that had fallen by the wayside on a national scale and made it relevant again. It took three-plus years, but he got his guys, stuck to his guns, and created the culture he wanted [...] Read More »

#8 Maryland vs #3 Iowa

It's hard not to feel a little demoralized after Saturday night's loss. Yes it was a road game against a tough opponent and you can't win them all, but as far as I'm concerned, it's the way we lost that matters more than the final result. The Terps fell short in a predictable fashion. The defensive rebounding was atrocious for the second game [...] Read More »

#5 Maryland vs #11 Michigan State

Maryland travels to Michigan State this evening in what is a colossal tilt when it comes to determining the Terps fortunes this season. Coupled with the midweek game against Iowa, tonight's game with the Spartans will determine if Maryland is indeed a Top 5 team. Simply put, the next two games are the most important ones left on the sched [...] Read More »
