Terps vs BC

This is the classic letdown game if ever there was one.  Everyone knows it. The fans, the coaches, the players (maybe, hopefully).  What can be done to prevent it? 

Well, for one thing, Maryland needs to feed the post. Alex Len demonstrated on Saturday why he is a likely Lottery Pick in June.  If BC chooses to double-team him, Len must be effective at passing out of the double team to find a viable second option.

The Terps must continue their good free throw shooting and rebounding advantages. 

BC plays tough at home and the Terps are likely to get all they can handle tonight.  Nevertheless, a win is expected and necessary.  After BC, Maryland faces Clemson, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest.  The Terps must go 4-0.  22-7 heading into the UNC and UVA games will mean that the Terps only need to get a split to earn an NCAA berth.

We Beat Duke. Now What?

I've been going to the Comcast Center for the better part of 10 years and I've never seen the place quite like that.  With or without the student section's commercial break flash mob; the arena was electric for the entire game.  The stadium was a big factor in the victory.  The game was incredibly exciting yet HORRENDOUSLY officiated. Yes, Duke [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Duke

The season is almost over and I get the sense that Maryland is still trying to find its identity.  That's one of their key problems.  The Terps don't know who they are or what they do well. Wells and Faust want to get out and run yet the Terps are a dominant rebounding team which lends itself to the halfcourt offense.  Unfortunately, with no qua [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Virginia

The importance of today's game can't be overstated. The Terps are likely going to fighting for the 5th at-large ACC bid with the Cavaliers.  That means that Maryland must at a minimum split the series with them. Virginia is coming off a 37-point drubbing of Clemson. Yes, 37 points.  UVA has had a relatively weak non-conference schedule (much li [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Virginia Tech

Every game from here on out is critical for the Terps--especially the road games.  Va Tech is not a good team.  Maryland wiped the court with them last month in Comcast. It's fair to expect a much closer affair in Blacksburg tonight; but anything less than a win is unacceptable.  The Terps need an undefeated week in the worst way.  It's starts [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Wake

If you are looking for a silver lining from last Wednesday's soul crushing loss; it would be that the team finally put the ball in the bucket with some consistency.  They didn't set the world on fire but they finally topped 70 points for the first time in a month. It's little solace since the major issues still remain.  The Terps lack of point g [...] Read More »

Maryland vs FSU

For the second time this month, I find myself in Las Vegas at a sales conference while Maryland is playing Florida State.  Lets hope the outcome is different.   The second half of that game was the beginning of the downward spiral for the Terps. Lowlights included 13 straight missed shots as Maryland frittered away 12 point lead. Now the Terp [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Duke

The Terps head to Cameron today to take on a Duke squad that is licking its wounds after a pasting vs. Miami earlier in the week.  That game should give the Terps encouragement.  Not only does it make Duke look beatable, but it also gives the Terps a better feeling about their loss to Miami. That loss was one of the worst games I've ever watche [...] Read More »

Maryland vs BC

Happy MLK Day everyone.  I hope that whatever you are doing that you have time to contemplate what today is supposed to be about. It's not just a "day off" but a moment to honor the struggle of a people and ability of love to triumph over hate. While Baltimore and it's expats (me!!) are trying to come down from yesterday's high, the Terps give u [...] Read More »

Maryland vs UNC

UNC is not the same UNC we are used to seeing.  They look vulnerable.  Desmond Hubert is regularly involved in things.  Remember him?  Desperate Terp fans were briefly enamored with him Jordan Williams abandoned us.  Regardless, this is not the same UNC team were used to seeing. However, these Terps aren't the same Terps we were used to seeing t [...] Read More »
