#15 Maryland vs Oakland

This Terrapin team has exceeded all expectations as Maryland enters its final tune up before diving into the Big Ten schedule.  What more can be said?  Melo Trimble has been a revelation.  His impact on the court goes beyond the numbers in the stat sheet.  It's the way he gets the ball into the half court set.  The way he protects the basketball.  The way he creates spacing on the floor.  The way he gets in the lane when the Terps need a bucket.  The way he knocks down free throws in crunch time.  How's that for a resume?

The other freshman have been great too.  Nickens has been the most consistent. He's an elite shooter with no fearlessness.  Wiley and Ceko have flashed skill as well.  Both will be contributors all season long. 

Damonte Dodd has emerged as defensive anchorman in addition to being a developing post up scorer. 

These have been some of the headlines but not all.

Jake Layman has truly emerged as a complete player. His performance against Oklahoma State was all one could have hoped for.  He took it to the hole.  He hit from deep.  He was the best player on the floor.

Dez Wells may suit up tomorrow.  I'm not worried about him being integrated back in to the lineup.  Good players are good players and we need as many of them as possible. I hope he's ready to go tomorrow because it'd be nice to get him some minutes prior to the Terps trip to Lansing on the 30th. 

Oakland is a scrappy team.  They took Pitt to double OT before ultimately losing.  Maryland may not blow this team out but we'll win.  This team ain't losing to cupcakes anymore.

#17 Maryland at Oklahoma State

Maryland faces a stiff test this afternoon as the Terps travel to Stillwater to take on Oklahoma State. The Cowboys feature dynamic swingman Le'Bryan Nash.  Nash is a wide-bodied wingman who can get to the rim against anyone.  He sounds a lot like Dez Wells and unfortunately Maryland will be without Dez's services again today. I expect OK St to [...] Read More »

#19 Maryland vs South Carolina Upstate

Who's ready for Brunch with the Terps tomorrow?  I don't think Maryland has ever tipped off a game in College Park this early.  I wonder if that will effect attendance?  Oh wait.  No one comes to the games anyway so I guess it doesn't matter.  I wish the University would start admitting students who actually liked college basketball.  The current c [...] Read More »

#19 Maryland vs NC Central

Man, it feels good have a number in front of Maryland's name, doesn't it? The Terps started slow and won going away against a decent Winthrop squad.  NC Central comes to town with a less impressive resume but they are preseason MEAC favorite and likely NCAA Tournament team.  The Terps should be ready having settled into life without Dez Well [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Winthrop

I always get Wagner and Winthrop confused for obvious reasons. I'm not sure which one is historically better than the other. I think it's Winthorp. Every time I hear the name Winthrop, I think Louis Winthrop III and the movie Trading Places. But alas, we are playing the team and not Dan Ackroyd's character. Anyway, I hope the Terps are pissed af [...] Read More »

#21 Maryland vs #7 Virginia

Maryland is ranked for the first time in something like 4 1/2 years and we get to celebrate by hosting #7 UVA in our first tangle with an ACC school as a member of the Big Ten.  It's an exciting way to play this year's first meaningful game at the Xfinity Center. The Terps will be without Dez Wells which is a huge blow to our hopes.  However, th [...] Read More »

Maryland vs VMI

Hopefully the basketball team can help to erase the awful taste left in our mouths after the football team aborted their season yesterday. I won't speak of it anymore, but suffice to say that if Maryland played Rutgers 9 times, they win 10 of them.  Only an incompetent coaching staff could have given Rutgers the victory. Now onto the basketball [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Rutgers

The quest for 8-4 ends tomorrow with a home game against Rutgers.  Maryland can taste a decent bowl and I don't see Rutgers spoiling the party. Rutgers has been getting rolled in the Big Ten and I think the Terps have a chance to run up the score. A win and the Terps have a shot at a decent bowl.  I've seen them projected to play in the Citrus [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Monmouth

The CBE Champions return home tomorrow night to face Monmouth.  Monmouth and Maryland share a common opponent, Central Connecticut State.  Maryland beat them by close to 40.  Monmouth beat them by 15.  I'm expecting a 20 point win.  There's obviously a hangover concern after the triumphant trip to Kansas City but I'm confident the Terps can weather [...] Read More »

We're Relevant!

That's the best thing you can say about last night's resounding victory at the CBE Classic over #13 Iowa State.  The Maryland Terrapins basketball team matters on the national scene again.  Barring an utter collapse against the minnows Monmouth and VMI, the Terps should be ranked in the Top 25 come Monday, December 1st. Who could have thought th [...] Read More »
