#3 Maryland vs Michigan

Maryland continues its road trip tonight in Ann Arbor when the Terps take on a pretty good Wolverines squad.  As last Saturday proved yet again, any road game is going to be very tough.  Wisconsin provided Maryland with all it could handle and if not for Melo Trimble's heroics, would have surely taken us to the limit in overtime. 

That said, the game should not have been as close as it was. The Terps uncharacteristically missed to front end's of 1 and 1s and that gave the Badgers a chance.  Tack on those 4 points and Wisconsin would never have possessed the ball with a chance to tie down the stretch. 

Regardless, a win is a win as they say and the Terps are rolling.  The team is loaded with talent but Melo's clutch play makes them extra dangerous.  He reminds me of Juan Dixon in that he excels precisely when he's most needed. He may be the best player in college basketball right now.

Tonight's game is also likely to be decided in the final minutes.  The Terps are better than Michigan but no one is waltzing to victory on their home court without a fight.  I like our chances and these battles against middling Big Ten teams will prepare us for the heavyweights, Michigan State and Purdue later in the year.

#3 Maryland vs Wisconsin

The Terps head to Wisconsin this afternoon to face a struggling team in a tough place to play. Indeed, while the Badgers have struggled, the reputation of the Kohl Center warrants respect. What's more, the Teros will get Wisconsin's best shot. As the number 3 team in the country, struggling teams will look at a game against the Terps as a way to ri [...] Read More »

#3 Maryland vs Rutgers

The Terps won convincingly with a wire to wire double digit win against Northwestern. I was there and it wasn't even as close as the score indicated. It was men against boys. The Terps dominated every facet of the game. I also got to see a Chris Collins temper tantrum which was nice. I also had the opportunity to watch the OU vs KU game last n [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs Northwestern

There are two ways to look at Wednesday's way-too-close for comfort win against Penn State. The positive view of which I tend ascribe is that never again will Trimble/Layman/Sulaimon/Carter shoot a combined 9-36 from the field. It wasn't like Penn State was paying incredible defense, the guys were just missing open looks. The win actually prov [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs Penn State

The Terps kick off Big Ten conference play tonight against conference minnow Penn State. While no game should be taken for granted, I can't imagine the Nittany Lions will be coming into the Xfinity Center and causing too much of a fight. We've seen Maryland keep teams in games with poor defense and this may happen again but the result won't be in d [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs Marshall

Is it still basketball season? Feels like no given the Terps have played exactly one game in the last two weeks. Tonight is the final non-conference tune-up when Marshall visits College Park. This game  should not and will not be close.  Terps fans should concern themselves not with the final score but with the sharpness of the Terps on b [...] Read More »

#6 Terps vs Princeton

The Terps play in the good 'ol Baltimore Arena tonight as the take on the Princeton Tigers.  The Bawlmer Arena is to arenas what LaGuardia is to airports: a relic of the past that outlived its usefulness 25 years ago. To me, it stands a monolith to Baltimore's futile efforts to masquerade as a major sports town. Yes I love the Ravens and Oriol [...] Read More »

#6 Maryland vs UMES

The Terps have entered the final stretch of the non-conference season. UMES comes to College Park tonight and they are surely the worst team the Terps will play all season. UMES is fresh off a 50-point drubbing at the hands of Michigan State and I expect the Terps to demonstrate no mercy either. Despite beating UConn at the Garden on Tues [...] Read More »

#6 Maryland vs UConn

There's a ton I want to say about this matchup but I am too swamped today.  Sorry. It's going to be a great game but if I had to put my prognosticator hat on, I'd say this game builds off the St. Francis performance and the Terps fire on cylinders from the opening tip.  We win by 10+. I will make it up in the comments. Go Terps! [...] Read More »

University To Rename Byrd Stadium

The University just announced that Byrd Stadium is being renamed to "Maryland Stadium".  The effort is due to many campus groups' objection to having one of the University's flagship facilities named after a devoted segregationist.  The memorandum goes on to say that Byrd's contributions have laid the foundation for all the success the University h [...] Read More »
