1/14/19 #19 Maryland vs. Wisconsin

After a most impressive week, the Terps finds themselves in the top 20. It's exciting to see them turn things around from the early season stumbles. In both games, the Terps fell behind and then came back to win comfortably. Indiana cut it to three on a buzzer beater but the Terps had a two possession lead or greater for most of the second half.

Much of the credit goes to Mark Turgeon for moving Cowan back to the point and not being afraid to throw in a zone defense to disrupt teams. Those factors have been key to the Terps success. Throw in the fact that Bruno has become a dominant force in the paint on both ends of the floor and Maryland looks hard to stop.

The team is rounding into shape but the tests don't stop. Wisconsin comes to town this evening and they are always a tough out. Ethan Happ is their do-everything big man so it will be interesting to see if and how the Maryland bigs are able to corral him.

Tonight's game is critical because the Terps have to travel to Ohio State later in the week and then early next week, they head to East Lansing to face #6 Michigan State. A win tonight, and the Terps will have given themselves some cushion. Basically, a win tonight and they are playing with house money for the next two games.

1/10/19 Maryland vs #22 Indiana

How bout dem Terps? Maryland played their best half of the season after intermission against Minnesota. It was a rout. On the road. Turgeon switched to a zone and flummoxed the Gophers. Great coaching? road wins? Who is this team? Now Maryland has a chance to complete the perfect week by holding serve against a ranked Indiana squad. Wi [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Minnesota

The rubber meets the road for Maryland over the next 5 games. In addition to this tough road game against Minnesota, Maryland will face four successive Top 25 opponents (although it may be 3 if Wisconsin falls out of the Top 25). First things first. Maryland has looked better of late but winning at Rutgers is not the same thing as winning e [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Rutgers

Maryland finally got a win against a top 25 team this week. Nebraska has a good team but it’s not like we can wipe our hands of all the problems we’ve seen from this team. It’s a great first step and was wonderful to see them win a close game. Now, two road tests are on the horizon. The first one is the easiest and it’s this afternoon at Rutgers. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Nebraska

The Big Ten season is officially in full swing as the Terps play host to Nebraska this evening. The Huskers are good and will present a challenge. In the end, the Terps will win if they don’t beat themselves and that includes tactical and coaching mistakes. This team isn’t good enough to overcome poor coaching or the inability to make adjustments. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Seton Hall

Is it still basketball season? Finals Week is interminably long. I hope the Terps have not accumulated any rust. Seton Hall comes to town and they  are good. They've already beaten Kentucky so Maryland will have its hands full. From where I sit, this is a must-win for Maryland. The Terps need a signature out-of-conference win to help t [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Loyola (MD)

Folks, life has been getting the better of me lately and I've twice failed to put up a game thread. Unacceptable. Tonight, the Terps take on the lesser Loyola in the hopes of completing the sweeps of the eponymous Jesuit schools. From here we take on the rest! Watch out Georgetown, Villanova etc.! In all seriousness, the Greyhounds off [...] Read More »

#23 Maryland vs Purdue

Maryland gets its first big road test tonight as they head to Mackey Arena to take on the Boilermakers. Maryland has ascended to #23 in the country but they’ve yet to win a game against a highly touted opponent.  Purdue began the season in the top 25 and has only lost to top 25 teams. Tonight’s game will be tough. To win, Maryla [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Penn State

Life got the best of me on Wednesday and I wasn’t able to get a thread up in time for Virginia game. Outside of Turgeon’s unforgivable decision to throw out a lineup of 4 freshman and Bender after the under-12 timeout. That ill-advised move gave Uva separation and the Terps would never regain the lead. Make no mistake, Uva played virtuall [...] Read More »
