Trayvon Reed Officially Commits To Terps

2014 Top 100 recruit and 7 foot tall center, Trayvon Reed has committed to the University of Maryland today.  Reports are coming in from all over that he has verball committed to the Terps.

Reed would be Turgeon's third top 100 recruit in the class of 2014.  Gone are the days when Gary Williams was picking through 3 star guys with no national ranking.  The program is now consistently getting good players.

Now, it's time to deliver on the court.

Is Alex Len Really Going To Be Picked #1?

I feel compelled to address the groundswell of news reports that Alex Len is about to be drafted #1 by the Cleveland Cavaliers this week.  While on one hand, getting picked #1 is great for Alex personally and a great advertisement for the program; I'm troubled.  Here how I see it playing out: 1.  He's not ready to contribute and Cleveland Stinks [...] Read More »

Dion Wiley Commits To Terps

Mark Turgeon nabbed another top 50 recruit today (no. 36 to be exact) as 2014 shooting guard, Dion Wiley committed to the Terps.  Add Wiley to fellow 2014 guard, PG Melo Trimble, and the Terps have their back court of the future in place. It's further evidence that Coach Turgeon has created a new level of expectations for the caliber of talent [...] Read More »

Bye Bye Alex Len

In a move the surprises absolutely no one, Alex Len is going declare himself eligible for the NBA Draft.  We've known this was going to happen back in November.  He will leave a large hole to fill, but Chuck Mitchell and Shaq Cleare are up to the challenge. I wish Alex the best although I'd be surprised if he sees the court much over the next tw [...] Read More »

Pe'Shon Howard To Transfer

I can't say that this news comes as a shock but Pe'Shon Howard has played his last game in a Maryland uniform.  On one hand, I'm sad because Howard is a great kid who caught a few bad breaks with injuries.  On the other hand, I think that his departure is a signal that Turgeon intends to upgrade the PG position NEXT SEASON. Yes, freshman Rod [...] Read More »

NIT Semifinals - Terps v Iowa

Perhaps this is a bad question to ask on the eve of the NIT Semifinals; but I'm wondering what Terp fans prefer the most?  A first round loss in the NCAA Tournament or the NIT Championship?  For me, it's all about getting to the Dance; but the merits of a deep run in the NIT are clear:  freshman and sophomores get a taste of the postseason agai [...] Read More »

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 [...] Read More »

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 »
