#14 Maryland vs Illinois

The Terps enter the last week of the regular season with their worst ranking of the year. Maryland has lost 3 of their last 4 games and seem completely incapable of protecting the glass.

The fact that this team- arguably the most talented in Maryland history- could allow 19 offensive on 29 missed shots at Purdue on Saturday is one of the most damning statistics I've ever seen.

If you are looking for an Achilles heel, search no more. The Terps simply cannot beat good teams in March while putting forth that kind of rebounding effort.

The good news is that rebounding is about desire and effort. You can't teach Damonte Dodd to play with the offensive skill of Diamond Stone overnight but you can certainly commit to boxing out and rebounding with abandon in a short period of time.

Let's hope Maryland has decided to get serious about it. It has already cost them a top seed in the Tournament. It's not too late to cost them the season. However, if they don't fix it, it undoubtedly will.

Any betting person would be selling the Terps short right now. They have all the markings of a talented team that lacks the necessary fundamentals to put together a tournament run. It's time for the Terps to start proving people wrong.

Illinois is garbage but the Terps haven't put together a dominant performance in over a month so now would be a good time to start. The Indiana game is likely meaningless in terms of Big Ten Tournament seedlings but the Terps need to play well in both games this week to have any hope at a top 3 seed.

Ok now let's go out there and beat the Illini by 20 points.

#10 Maryland vs #20 Purdue

Maryland controls its own destiny in terms of the regular season big ten title but that road goes through the state of Indiana. The first test is in East Lafayette against the Boilermakers. Purdue gave Maryland all it could handle in college park a few weeks back and they are desperate for a win. The Terps are still a work in progress. Me [...] Read More »

#6 Maryland vs Michigan

I'm not even sure I can bear to watch the game today.  The Terps are completely lost and for a team this talented, it's painful. The turnovers and rebounding problems continue unabated but now we can add poor shooting to the list of grievances. Simply put, that dog won't hunt. Maryland can't win if they can't shoot the ball. They don't do [...] Read More »

Powerhouse Gophers outlast Terps

Man, we gave that one our best shot, but winning on the road in a half-filled arena against a coach so bad he was getting close to being chased out of town and a team so bad they hadn't won a single Big Ten game all season proved to be too tall a task.  I don't even have anything else to say. At this point, I would take a team of Pe'Shon Howard, [...] Read More »

#6 Maryland vs Minnesota

Terps head to Minneapolis tonight one man short (Diamond Stone) and licking their wounds from the home loss to Wisconsin.  The Terps are not playing particularly well right now and Minnesota has showed some life of late with a close road loss to Iowa.  No one knows if Melo's back problems are the real cause of lackluster play of late but tonight [...] Read More »

Terps lose first B1G home game

I was going to write this last night, but I decided to let cooler heads prevail. It's a good thing too; I needed to simmer down after that one.  This team appears to lack any sort of direction on offense. Melo is clearly hurt. It's probably his back, or a combination of ailments, but he just isn't himself. His shot looks flat and he's not absorb [...] Read More »

#2 Maryland vs Wisconsin

The Terps are back to Big Ten grind this evening when a frisky Wisconsin team comes to town. Maryland handled the Badgers in Madison except the Terps forgot to play the last three minutes of the game and almost had to go to overtime. Thankfully, Melo Trimble bailed them out with last second heroics. Hopefully, tonight won't be so dramatic [...] Read More »

#2 Maryland vs Bowie State

If you are confused by this game on the slate, it might be helpful to just think of this as a mid season scrimmage. The timing couldn't be better.  The Terps are pretty tired and could use a week off.  From Turgeon's point of view, might as well have a scrimmage in there so they don't get stale. For the record, this game basically doesn't count. [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs #18 Purdue

Maryland escaped Lincoln with a win on Wednesday and it has left many Terp fans feeling a bit uneasy. The Terps are committing turnovers at an alarming rate, particularly on the road, and it is preventing them from easily beating average teams. Robert Carter also had his worst game of the season and that made things a bit more difficult as wel [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs Nebraska

Maryland travels to Nebraska tonight with the hope of building the recent road success at Ohio State over the weekend.  We can't take any road games for granted and Nebraska recently beat Michigan State in the Breslin Center so don't expect a cake walk tonight. That said, a loss would be a massive disappointment. Separately, this is one weird [...] Read More »
