#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 well. Layman stepped up with another outstanding defensive performance as he is quickly becoming the team's shut down guy.

Trimble continues to hit the clutch shots and Stone was dominant offensively.

Purdue comes in ranked 18th in the nation and boasts one of the biggest front courts in the country. The Terps are the rare team that can match Purdue's size. Look for Ceko to get more minutes than usual today.

Maryland should be at an advantage in the back court as Purdue doesn't have the athleticism to keep up with Trimble and Sulaimon.

The only thing that can beat Maryland today is Maryland. If Purdue gets double digit offensive rebounds and Maryland turns the ball over 15 times, we will probably lose. 

Hopefully, Turgeon is working daily on those two things in practice. Offensive rebounds and turnovers are the reasons why prognosticators still list the Terps as 3 seed in March despite a top 4 ranking and an RPI in the top 10.

#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 »

#5 Maryland vs Northwestern

The Terps welcome Northwestern to College Park tonight and hope to build on the excellent performance against Ohio State over the weekend. Speaking of which, how about that game? The Terps pasted Ohio State by 35 points and it wasn't even that close.  Watching the game reminded me of watching someone pig-out at a buffet table.  Every option was ava [...] Read More »

Terps maul Ohio State

That headline feels good to write. It's been the opposite (and embarrassing) the past two years I had to give this one a little time to digest; that game showcased what we knew that Terps were capable of offensively the whole year. It was flat out a treat to watch. I think the loss at Michigan fired the guys up; that loss should have never happened [...] Read More »
