Maryland @ UNC

I reckon that the Terps have a 10% chance of making the NCAA Tournament.  They likely need to win 6 of their last 9 games to merit consideration.  With two games vs UVA, a road game at Duke and a home game against #1 (and undefeated) Syracuse, tonight's road game at UNC is a must-win.

Anyone who reads this blog has little hope that the Terps will win at North Carolina let alone win 6 of its next 9 games; but we are all going to watch and hope for the best. 

Now the Terps have looked better of late (yes I realize that Miami and VaTech are horrible).  Dez has stepped up and Jake Layman has been more aggressive.  Seth Allen seems to have cut down on his turnovers too.  It remains to be seen if this improvement is due to the crappy opposition or a real improvement.  We'll find out tonight.

UNC is an elite rebounding team but the Terps match up well with them.  This is a winnable game and the Turgeon and the Terps desperately need a win like this.  After the VaTech game, Turgeon said something to the effect of "I just want the team to look they are coached and enjoy playing together."  That's not exactly a high bar to set but wins like this can cement that desire.  The program desperately needs a win like this tonight. 

Will we get it?

Maryland vs Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech is atrocious.  Maryland is atrocious on the road.  Something has to give.  It's the classic example of a moveable force going against a stoppable object.  This is what it has come to.  The Terps are featured in the least exciting ACC game of the day.  Good to Great. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Miami

I'm getting tired of writing about this team.  Simply put, they are not fun to watch.  I'm sure these are really good kids; they just don't play basketball well.  Players who were seemingly once dynamic, are now one-dimensional.  At 11-9, the Terps have the WORST record in the ACC.  It's unbelievable and an embarrassment for all involved.  Turg [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Pitt

I don't have much to say, nor do I have any enthusiasm for this team right now.  Go out and beat Pitt and show the fans that there is a reason to pay attention for the next two months. [...] Read More »

Can This Be Fixed?

Last night was a watershed moment for me and many other Terp fans.  It's clear that Mark Turgeon is not getting the most of out this team.  The parts are greater than the whole.  Turgeon is a young coach and he's made a mistake that many young coaches make.  He's round pegging the Terps into his square hole.  I've been wracking my brain to come [...] Read More »

Maryland vs NC State: The Quest For Consistency

The Terps have been a frustrating team to follow this season. Fans have watched them take two steps forward and one step back all year. What is desperately needed is for the Terps to build off their most recent victory against Notre Dame. Tonight's game is especially important because it is a road game. Maryland needs road victories to improve t [...] Read More »

Terps: Everytime I think I'm Out; They Pull Me Back In!

Ok.  That first half was dreadful but the Terps really turned it around with that second half.  They finally start to hit the inside/outside game with some nice contributions from Mitchell and Cleare.  That opened up the perimeter for threes and drives to the basket.  The 17 turnovers helped too as Maryland was able to get out and run for some easy [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Notre Dame: We Stink And It Is Depressing

The Terps are home after a disastrous two game road trip that saw them get outscored by 40+ points.  It's now time for some home cooking and that likely means that Maryland will play better.  In the end, what does it matter?  This team is way outside of the bubble looking in and there is no evidence to suggest that the team and/or coach are capable [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Florida State

The Terps 3-14 on the road under Mark Turgeon.  That stinks. The game in Tallahassee will offer yet another opportunity to pick up a quality road win.  The Terps are in desperate need of one.  I don't have the stats handy, but I'd like to see how many teams from power conferences that started 10-6 actually made the NCAA Tournament.  It's likely [...] Read More »

Maryland Takes It OnThe Chin As Pitt Whips Terps

I don't even know where to start. If we aren't shooting lights out, good coaches can figure out how to stop us quite easily.  Turgeon either doesn't know how to adjust or he is doesn't have the players capable of making the adjustment. you could actually see the moment in the game when Pitt figured us out. I could picture Dixon during the under 4 t [...] Read More »
