Maryland vs Michigan

Maryland limps into to Ann Arbor this on the heels of an absolute pasting at the hands of the Ohio State Buckeyes. The Wolverines are flying high after knocking off Michigan State in their most recent game. That adds up to a long evening for the Terps.

Right now, Maryland has the look of a team that isn't able to compete. The Terps have been getting obliterated at the three point line. Teams are just having shooting practice right now against them. It's easy to argue that the Terps are just catching teams at the wrong time when the shooters are hot but seems to be happening all too often with this team.

This latest bugaboo (three point defense) is the latest in a whack-a-mole of problems. First it was turnovers, now it's three point defense. The Terps seem to have figured out the turnover issue but now they can't stop teams. It's disheartening and the injuries have rendered Turgeon with little options to remedy the situation.

It's a long season and the schedule does ease up a bit down the stretch but it essential that the Terps get their act together. Wiley, Ceko and Nickens have been on the team for 4 years now and they need to lead. Huerter, Cowan and Fernando are the best players on the team but they need senior leadership to make this season a success.

Tonight's game could be very ugly as Michigan's strength (three point shooting) is Maryland's current weakness. That said, the games need to be played and the Terps have a chance if they play their best game.

Maryland vs Ohio State

I'm on a plane flying back from Las Vegas and I don't have the ability to put anything up outside of a brief post. Ohio State is coming off a massive win against then #1 Michigan State, a team that pasted Maryland by 30 points. The Terps need to play their best in Columbus to emerge with a win. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Iowa

Tonight is the kind of game where we’ll find out what kind of moxie the Terps have. Maryland got pasted in the last 30 minutes of the Michigan State game. Granted, the Spartans shot an other-worldly percentage from three and some questionable fouls got our big men in trouble, but the Maryland Terrapins should never lose a game by 30 points. Th [...] Read More »

Maryland vs #1 Michigan State

The Terps have a huge opportunity in front of them tonight. Given the injury situation, the overall matchup, and the fact that it is a road game; few are giving Maryland a chance. That said, BC beat Duke and Butler beat Villanova. #1 teams lose all the time and Maryland has the potential to do the same tonight. I'm not betting on it, but let's s [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Penn State

The Terps are set to take on an improved Penn State team tonight as the conference season really gets underway. They’ll tip off with the added weight of rumors that Justin Jackson may have played his last game as a Terp. Yes, the word is that regardless of how his rehab from injury progresses, he will declare himself eligible for the NBA draft [...] Read More »

Maryland vs UMBC

The Terrapins begin life without the services of Justin Jackson tonight. Diagnosed with a season-ending labrum tear, Jackson is officially shut down. Despite his horrid play this season, this is a big blow for Maryland. Jackson is the team’s leading rebounder (!!) and he’s also one of a couple players capable of creating his own shot. Sadly, w [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Farleigh Dickinson

The Terps are in the midst of the cupcakes and that continues with Farleigh Dickinson. Finals are over and hopefully the mini layoff didn’t create rust for the Terps to shake off. Let’s hope for a game with limited turnovers and continued hot shooting. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Catholic

The Terps play Catholic University tonight in what amounts to an exhibition game. Catholic is not a D1 or whatever they call it now school so this game doesn’t count for or against their NCAA resume. By against I mean it doesn’t effect their strength of schedule. Hopefully the Terps don’t commit 20 turnovers against this level of competition. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Gardner-Webb

Terp play Gardener-Webb today. This should be a blowout and probably will be. Maryland is coming off a resounding win against Ohio whereby they actually pulled away at the end.  Unfortunately the Terps still committed 18 turnovers- a ridiculous number that is going to continue to cost them games and could ultimately keep them out of [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Ohio

late getting this up. Blame my newborn twins. Ohio is a mid major. No leqd is safe with Maryland. Sets up for an evening of frustration but ultimately a win that does not hurt or help us. [...] Read More »
