#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 their 3's (9-22 instead of 15-22), they would have scored 18 less points. That alone leads me to believe that this was just one of those games.

Now, it's clear that the Terps were giving up open look after open look.  The defense just wasn't there.  If Hoosiers weren't wide open on the perimeter, they were driving past Terps in the lane. The Terps need to tighten up.

Northwestern comes to town with little chance of coming away with anything but a loss.  Sure, they can throw a scare into Maryland just like Rutgers did, but I expect the Terps to come out angry and pull away early.

Up next is another tough road game at Ohio State.  Will Maryland be able to fix their defensive issue in time to pull one out in Columbus?

#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 »

#14 Maryland vs Michigan State

Today's game should be a barn burner.  The Terps had perhaps the win of the season with their double OT win at Michigan State. The Spartans and Coach Izzo were decidedly unhappy with the result.  With a week to prepare and in desperate need of a signature win, I expect Michigan State to give the Terps their best shot. At 16-2, the Terps are play [...] Read More »

#14 Maryland vs Rutgers

On paper, the home game against Rutgers should be the easiest game on Maryland's remaining schedule. That was until Rutgers beat the #4 team in the nation, Wisconsin on Sunday. In college basketball, anything can happen so it's hard to discount a possible upset although I highly doubt it.  Maryland has played well at home all year and Rutgers b [...] Read More »

#9 Maryland vs Purdue

Wednesday's game was definitely a set back but road games are always hard and the Terps were due for an off night.  Lucky for me, it coincided with me being in Vegas so I got the double whammy of a gambling loss. Now, good teams tend to bounce back after tough losses.  Maryland is a good team so I expect the Terps to play better today.  However [...] Read More »

# 9 Maryland vs Illinois

Maryland capped off an perfect opening week to Big Ten play with a convincing win against a pesky Minnesota team.  The Gophers were desperate to avoid an 0-2 start and yet the Terps beat them anyway. Now, the Terps travel to Champaign to face an equally desperate Illini team.  Illinois has started Big Ten play with an 0-2 record and can ill affo [...] Read More »

#12 Maryland vs Minnesota

The Terps will try to avoid a letdown against a game Minnesota squad.  The Terps gutted out a tremendous victory in East Lansing earlier this week.  The game had everything.  Poor play.  Dramatic shots. A Come-from-behind win.  Now the question is can the Terps keep it going. On paper, Minnesota is a good team.  They are second in the nation in [...] Read More »

#12 Maryland vs Michigan State

The Big Ten season has arrived.  Maryland has come through the out-of-conference slate in near pristine condition.  The lone blemish a loss to a top 5 while the Terps were without the services of their best player. Now the Terps will have to deal with the rigors of life in the Big Ten and that means road game in difficult environments.  East La [...] Read More »

#15 Maryland vs Oakland

This Terrapin team has exceeded all expectations as Maryland enters its final tune up before diving into the Big Ten schedule.  What more can be said?  Melo Trimble has been a revelation.  His impact on the court goes beyond the numbers in the stat sheet.  It's the way he gets the ball into the half court set.  The way he protects the basketball.  [...] Read More »
