#21 Maryland vs Ohio State

This week's loss to Penn State was the team's worst performance since the Pitt game and it leaves the Terps in desperation mode against Ohio State today.

With a difficult road week ahead (@Northwestern @Wisconsin), a loss could send the team into a tailspin.

The problem is multi faceted but part of the issue is Trimble's shot selection. He's shooting 37% from the field over his last 10 games and feels like it's gotten worse over the last two games.

Maryland is at its best when they are sharing the ball with Heurter, Trimble, and Cowan distributing. They can't keep just giving the ball to Trimble in crunch time and let him drive to the hole in the hopes of getting fouled. Justin Jackson needs to be more involved. It's no coincidence that his scoring has receded during this swoon.

As for the Terps opponent, Ohio State is putrid on the road and doesn't really play as a team. Yet, they are talented and will make the Terps pay for sloppy play.

The game is crucial. The Terps need a jumpstart to the week ahead.

#21 Maryland @ Penn State

The Terps must rebound after Saturday's heartbreak as they go on the road to State College tomorrow. If this team has a weakness, it's that there is sometimes too much deference to Melo Trimble down the stretch. It happened in the Nebraska game and it happened again down the stretch against Purdue. Melo is so good that Turgeon is right to [...] Read More »

#17 Maryland vs #23 Purdue

Incredibly, the Terps are 3-point underdogs at home tomorrow when they take on the Purdue Boilermakers.  That's astounding when you consider that the Terps have a better record against like opponents (they've lost to Iowa and Minnesota), the Terps are ranked higher, and it's a home game. I think it is going to be a close game but the lack [...] Read More »

#17 Maryland @ Ohio State

If you haven't fallen I love with this Terp team yet, then what are you waiting for? Maryland did it again on Saturday. They came from behind with a sublime second half effort against and stout Minnesota squad. Make no mistake, the Gophers didn't blow the game, the Terps just took it from them. Maryland was deadly from behind the arc and [...] Read More »

#22 Maryland @ Minnesota

The Terps face their toughest road test so far when they travel to Minneapolis to take on the Gophers tomorrow afternoon. The Terps riding high having won 5 straight conference games but there are some areas of concern. Over the last two games, Maryland has turned the ball over 39 times and yielded 43 offensive rebounds to their opponents [...] Read More »

#22 Maryland vs Rutgers

Maryland returns home tomorrow to face Rutgers. At 17-2, the Terps are flying high. Maryland is undefeated on the road this season (4-0 inclusive of Georgetown) and ranked for the second week in a row. Justin Jackson won co-freshman of the week and the Terps continue to play without the services of Dion Wiley and Mikael Cekovsky. I don't [...] Read More »

#25 Maryland @ Iowa

The Terps are ranked and it's about time. This team has put together a wonderful season thus far. That inexplicable Nebraska loss looks like it turned out to be a great lesson for the young Terps. They are finishing games at home and on the road. Tonight's contest pits them against a similar opponent. Iowa starts several freshman but also has [...] Read More »

Maryland @ Illinois

The Terps have notched their two most impressive wins of the season in the last week. They are growing into themselves. The last few minutes of the Indiana game were instructive in terms of how far they've come. During the final 10 minutes, Melo tried to singlehandedly get Maryland back on top. It wasn't working. He'd get into the lane an [...] Read More »

Maryland @ Michigan

I got to be honest. I needed a bit of a break from Maryland basketball after watching the six minutes of hell on New Year's Day. The team simply stopped playing and gave away an easy win. Sure, the Terps probably have been playing with house money given all the close wins they've had, but that one really hurt.  Now, we e got a tough road [...] Read More »
