#14 Maryland vs #5 Wisconsin

The big game is here.  The Terps are desperate to prove that they can beat a good team following some disheartening blowout road losses and a few close wins against conference bottom feeders. There are many doubters out there (Seth Davis being the most prominent).

From where I sit, I have seen the Terps improve their shooting dramatically over the last few games. They seem to be turning a corner.  What I haven't seen is a complete performance and that is what is needed if the Terps are going to beat Wisconsin on Tuesday.  A complete effort means a commitment to rebounding.  The Terps have 3 offensive rebounds in the last 80 minutes of basketball.  That is astounding.  You simply cannot beat good teams if you only get one shot per possession. 

If they are going to get it going, this would be the game. The Terps can virtually lock down second place with a win.  They can stamp their ticket to a top 4 NCAA Tournament seed.  They can show themselves to be a force to be reckoned with.

#16 Maryland vs Nebraska

After watching last night's epic Duke v North Carolina game, it is a little hard to stomach an underwhelming conference opponent like Nebraska coming to town.  Don't get me wrong.  This Nebraska squad is a decent one, it's just they aren't Duke or Carolina.  We are all excited about being a part of the Big Ten but the timing here hurts a bit.  Hard [...] Read More »

#19 Maryland vs Penn State

The Terps pulled out a close one on Wednesday against a capable and talented Indiana squad.  It was the first game in nearly a month where Maryland's big three all played well. Damonte Dodd reemerged as a defensive presence and Jared Nickens finally found his stroke.  All of that translated into a win despite the Terps giving up 15 offensive reboun [...] Read More »

#19 Maryland vs Indiana

Somehow Maryland is still a ranked a team.  They haven't played well in nearly a month and there is no indication that anything is close to changing. The team has fallen behind by 10+ in the first half in 4 of their last 5 games.  Nothing is going right.  The defense is disjointed.  The offense is a mess. Tomorrow's game against Indiana is crit [...] Read More »

#17 Maryland vs Iowa

Maryland beat Penn State this week but it was hardly a resounding win.  Penn State went toe to toe with the Terps.  A month ago, Maryland probably wins the game by 15 points but things are a bit different now. With so many freshman logging crucial minutes, the Terps have hit a bit of a trough.  Melo Trimble is the straw that stirs the drink and [...] Read More »

#17 Maryland vs Penn State

The Terps have been stewing for a week as they try to work the stink off from the Ohio State debacle.  It's a pivotal time for Maryland and Coach Turgeon.  The Terps clearly lost some of their mojo during the most recent three game stretch.  Indiana shot the lights out.  Northwestern took us to the brink at home.  Ohio State blew us out of Colu [...] Read More »

Terps Mauled In Columbus

How bad was it?? We will drop out of the top 25 with a blowout loss on national tv. no doubt there. 3 straight games with double-digit deficits in the second half. No inside play at all. the big 3 (Layman, Melo and Wells) shot 7 for 30. 7 for 30. The whole team quit at the under 8 timeout. They have to sit with this loss for a week. If they [...] Read More »

#16 Maryland vs Ohio State

The Terps will have their hands full tonight.  Road games in the B1G are a grind.  The officiating has been universally horrible with a bias towards the home team.  The teams fish in similar talent pools so pulling out road wins is a rarity.  Maryland has had good success but only when the defense is playing at an elite level.  The last two gam [...] Read More »

#8 Maryland vs Northwestern

Maryland is licking its wounds after a pounding at Indiana.  The Hoosiers shot 68% from three on 22 attempts.  That is an unbelievable rate of success.  While the Terps got pasted by 19 points, there is reason to believe that the Hoosiers played out of their minds and probably would have beaten anyone on Thursday. If Indiana had merely hit 40% of t [...] Read More »

#8 Maryland vs #23 Indiana

Maryland played one of their most complete games of the year on Saturday.  The Terps whipped a motivated Michigan State squad.  It's becoming clearer that the Terps are at their best when Melo Trimble and Jake Layman are the top scoring options.  Dez Wells has been the #1 option for the last two years but the offense just doesn't perform as wel [...] Read More »
