Maryland vs Charlotte

Maryland renews its relationship with Baltimore tonight when they take on UNC-Charlotte tonight at Royal Farms Arena.

Royal Farms Arena was outdated in the 1980s when I used to go to Wrestlemania events there. The fact that it remains an outgoing concern in a top 25 market like Baltimore defies explanation. It's easily the worst multi-purpose civic arena in the United States. But I digress.

The Terps come off their customary finals break for their last tune up before the Big Ten season starts. Charlotte is a classic mid major but doesn't have the horses to challenge the Terps.

I'd like to see Maryland build on their most complete performance of these cupcake games the last time out. Continued improvement from Cekovsky is critical and Terps need to show some consistency from 3PT and better rebounding.

They ease into the Big Ten with winnable games against Illinois and Nebraska but then it is into the hopper with a road test at Michigan and home against top 20 Indiana.

They need to be hitting their stride. Let's hope Charlotte helps with that.

Maryland vs Jacksonville State

The Terps are pathetic 14-point favorite against Jacksonville State tonight. Who can blame the oddsmakers? Maryland has yet to put together 40 solid minutes of basketball despite their gaudy 9-1 record. Saturday's game against St. Peter's was particularly frustrating. The Terps played their best first half of the season and even extended that [...] Read More »

Maryland vs St. Peter's

Despite another tepid first half, the Terps looked like a power conference team Wednesday night as they ran away from Howard in the second half and cruised to 20+ point win. It was their first blowout win against a D-1 opponent this season. Mikael Cekovsky led the way with 16 points. He displayed a couple of great low post moves and ran the fl [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Howard

The Terps will have a tough time coming up with an encore to follow Saturday night's thrilling win over Oklahoma State at the Comcast Center. In what is now becoming routine, the Terps overcame a 12-point deficit to win in the closing seconds.  It was the 4th time this season that the Terps overcame a deficit of 9 points or greater (Towson, Ge [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Oklahoma State

Tonight's tilt between the Terps and visiting Oklahoma State Cowboys is critical for Maryland. The Terps lost themselves in the first half against Pitt on Tuesday and desperately need to the right the ship against a quality opponent before the cupcakes invade Comcast.  On Tuesday, the Pitt zone flummoxed the young Terps and the Panthers went o [...] Read More »

ACC / Big Ten Challenge: Maryland vs Pitt

Maryland takes on Pitt in the ACC/B1G Challenge tonight at the Comcast Center. The Terps return home from an incredibly successful (and stressful) holiday weekend trip to Brooklyn. An OT win over Richmond and a one-point victory vs Kansas State punctuated what could be a season defining moment for the Terps. Thanks in large part to Melo T [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Rutgers and Maryland vs Kansas State

Double thread today as the football team attempts to become bowl eligible and the basketball team plays in the finals of the Barclays Center Classic. The basketball team escaped with a win last night thanks to a great second half in which the Terps overcame an 12-point deficit. Melo Trimble led the way but all three freshman contributed n [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Richmond

Maryland returns to the Barclay Center this evening to take on a dangerous Richmond team. The A-10 is a difficult conference and one that I would argue is above mid major status.  Richmond is going to be a test. Their best scorer is Shawn'Dre Jones and he is hitting over 50% of his threes right now and averaging nearly 20ppg. On the [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Stonybrook

The Terps take on Stonybrook tonight in what should be a tune up for next weekend's tougher slate. Unfortunately, it's hard to imagine any team being a tune up for the Terps right now. They simply can't play consistently for long enough stretches to put any team away. The 3PT shooting has been pedestrian and they were outmuscled by Towson over t [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Towson

The Terps take on Towson today without Ceko or Wiley. So far this season, we've seen a gutty team in a shooting slump. The Terps showed incredible heart coming back against Georgetown yet they haven't been able to muster a game where they shoot better than 30% from three. It's early yet and certainly not time to panic but it'd be nice to see a good [...] Read More »
