#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. Melo's struggles have continued and the Terps could not stop Michigan defensively last week. Diamond Stone, in particular, was so bad that Turgeon couldn't play him down the stretch.

An optimist will say that Maryland recent struggles are understandable. Wisconsin is beating everyone right now and the Minnesota loss came with Stone in the lineup. 

A pessimist would say that the Terps can't win a title with a turnover prone offense and poor defensive rebounding.

Maryland is good enough to beat Purdue today. A win and they will likely be playing for the regular season title in Bloomington next weekend.

#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 »

Layman leads Terps past OSU

That was as complete a performance as I have seen from Jake as a Terp. He has played stout defense all year, but this game was the first where I have really seen him take over and get into a groove offensively. I didn't get to watch the Iowa game (I was in a place with no WiFi or TV, in the year 2016!), but from everything I read his defense made t [...] Read More »
