NIT Quarterfinals: Maryland vs Alabama

Tonight's game provides a valuable test for the Terps.  Mark Turgeon definitely wants this. I can guarantee you that. 

After the season ending debacle at Virginia; the young Terps desperately need to have the experience of a road win as we look toward next season. Neutral sites are one thing, but winning  on the road is the difference between a bubble team and a Top 20 team.

Going down to Tuscaloosa will provide Turgeon with an opportunity to end our travails on a high note.  The Terps will be without Seth Allen (broken hand, out for the season); but have more than enough able bodies to compete and win. 

It should be an interesting contest with a trip to MSG as spoils for the winner.

Not In Tournament

We all knew that we would be here didn't we.  Ever since the BC loss, it was apparent that the Terps wouldn't do enough to get on the right side of the bubble.   There were plenty of frustrations along the way, but the Terps played their best basketball at the end of the season. That's encouraging. Overall, things are looking up. Yes, it's cl [...] Read More »

ACCT - Semifinal Thread

That was an epic win.  Maryland hadn't beaten Duke in the ACC Tournament since the Finals in 2004 aka, "the Gilchrist Tournament".  Dez Wells seems to be channeling him at the moment. Whoever we play, the Terps have sowed the seeds for future success with today's win.  A loss in the semis would be disappointing; but we should be happy for what t [...] Read More »

ACCT Maryland vs Duke

Duke always seems to stand in the way don't they?  This Terps team is incredibly flawed.  We've chronicled it ad nauseum on this site.  Still, we'll show up tonight at 7pm hoping against hope that the Terps can turn in a performance in Greensboro that we haven't seen in a decade. This would be a fantastic time to put it together wouldn't it? [...] Read More »

ACCT - Wake vs Maryland

Welcome to irrelevance. This game is on no one's radar.  The winner will simply be fodder for the Ryan Kelly - Duke juggernaut.  I assume it will be us.  The Terps can beat a poor Wake squad any day.  I will not be looking forward to the Duke game.  They will crush us. It will be painful. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Virginia, The Quest For Mediocrity

The headline says it all I think.  The Terps have limped through the ACC Season and are surely poised to be left out of the NCAA yet again. The only April excitement for us is whether or not five-star recruit Dwayne Morgan will choose the Terps on April 5th. It's incredibly frustrating for fans but I think the program is on the way up. This team [...] Read More »

Maryland vs UNC

The Terps have their latest "must-win" game of the season tonight. It will be in the midst of a snowstorm.  If the crowd shows up, we should give UNC all they can handle. The last game against Wake was promising.  The team played a style that was reminiscent of the early season form.  Pe'shon Howard finally played well.  The Terps are still [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Wake

Terps are officially playing out the string.  Not even an unlikely 3-game winning streak to the end the season can save their NCAA hopes now. Wake sucks but somehow are tough at home.  I've given up hoping this team will figure it out.  Win or lose today, nothing changes about this season. [...] Read More »

Picking Up The Pieces

It's time for some tough love. Turgeon said the team would get better.  He was wrong.  He didn't count on Pe'shon Howard completely melting down.  Remember, Howard was averaging 6 assists/game before the ACC season started with very few turnovers. It was certain to expect a dip when the ACC season started but he degenerated to the point of being [...] Read More »
