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 two weeks ago.  Where's the offense?  I've seen some blame the offensive swoon on more aggressive defense bothering our guards but I think it is deeper than that.

The first 60 minutes of ACC play (VT game plus first half of FSU) looked normal.  The Terps shot well from three and that opened up things on the inside.  That's not what's been happening.  The whole team is in a massive shooting slump.  I'm not sure why these things happen (It's happening to Illinois right now too.  They just got blown out by Northwestern). but the timing couldn't be worse.

This UNC game is critical.  The Tarheels are beatable and the Terps schedule is about to get tougher.  After UNC is an easy home game against BC but that is followed by two road trips to Duke and FSU.  Maryland needs to be at least 16-5 after this four-game stretch. The schedule gets a bit easier after that, but thwinning a game like the one today in Chapel Hill.

Terps Get Big Win; Double-U Tee Eff Is Wrong With Offense??

I can't for the life of me figure out what is wrong with the offense.  Turgeon's complaining that they can't even run his plays out of timeouts.  Len, Cleare, Faust, Wells are all missing layups and dunks.  No one can hit a jump shot. Is it the point play?  Is it Wells? Is it Turgeon? The Terps scored 91 points against Virginia Tech 2 WEEKS A [...] Read More »

Maryland vs NC State Thread

Like the rest of Terp Nation, this two-game sojourn into the wilderness of hideous basketball has me concerned.  For the most part, I chalked it up to lackluster PG play combined with an inability to hit shots.  Both things are fixable. That was until Mark Turgeon floated out the idea of moving Nick Faust over to point.  Now, I'm really concerne [...] Read More »

The Wheels Fall Off In Miami

What just happened?  I thought I turned on a college basketball game and instead I watched a girl's middle school basketball team take on the Miami Hurricanes.  I deleted all traces of the game from my DVR for fear that it would permeate into my HD TV and somehow destroy it. Whatever momentum, sense of self, and offensive flow that the Terps dev [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Miami

I'd say half the Terp fans out there are Ravens fans and the other half are Skins fans.  The former are riding high right now after the most exhilarating win in franchise history.  The unlikely playoff run has proven the power leadership can have on helping teams achieve goals. Ray Lewis has inspired the team to play at a level they've not reac [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Florida State

Greetings from CES and Las Vegas!  I've been at this insane conference all week and barely have 30 seconds to throw up this post.  This is a huge game for Maryland heading into a two-game stretch including the first ACC road game (Miami) and then our first ranked open since Kentucky (NC State).  Maryland must win this game at home to continue t [...] Read More »

Terps Crush Hokies, 94-71

In the history of Maryland basketball, the Terps have had better ACC openers, but I don't remember them. Granted, Virginia Tech is not Duke, but good teams (dare I say great?) blow out average teams and that's what happened today at the Comcast Center. What a dominant performance! Watching the game, you never got the sense that the Hokies ever h [...] Read More »

ACC Opener: VaTech vs Maryland

We are finally here Terp fans! Turgeon and crew are set to tip off at Noon ET tomorrow.   Virginia Tech poses an interesting test.  They have some nice wins (Ok St) and some perplexing losses (Georgia Southern). The Hokies sport the leading scorer in the ACC (Erick Green) but lack depth.  They remind me of last year's Terps squad.  Remember, whe [...] Read More »

Maryland vs IUPUI

I can't recall the last time that Maryland played a game on New Year's Day.  I thought there was an unwritten rule that the holiday was reserved exclusively for football.  I guess that has deteriorated now that the good bowl games all happen after the first of the year.  No matter.  Today's Terps game shouldn't be too exciting.  We're playing a tea [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Delaware State

The Cupcake Parade continues.  I'm sure that the team feels like we do and are ready to get the real season underway.  Alas, we have two more of these games left.  Delaware St. may be the worst of all the teams we play.  The Terps are coming off a lackluster second half against a game Stonybrook squad.  Coach Turgeon will be looking for a compl [...] Read More »
