BB&T: Maryland vs George Washington

Do you remember when the BB&T Tournament used to be a high quality affair?  Much like the decline of the Terps fortunes over the years, so too has the BB&T sank to mediocrity.  Now, it just basically an annual game with either George Mason or George Washington.  Georgetown is the only thing keep this from being a great regional tournament but alas it is not in the cards.

Today, the Terps face a true test.  GW is 7-1 with a one of those wins coming against a top 20 team (Creighton).  The Terps can boast no such thing and as such will have their work cut out for them.

As Post beat writer, Alex Prewitt, excellently pointed out after the Ohio State game; the Terps defensive lapses killed them in Columbus.  One can hope that the film room disposed Nick Faust and Jake Layman of their bad habits.  Otherwise, it could be another ugly loss and a decent into another dreadful season of going nowhere.

This game is a must-win for Maryland.  BC looms and Thursday and 2-0 week will give the team some momentum heading into the cupcake stretch that ends the year.  We could actually be in a decent position heading into the ACC season.  It all starts with a win today.  There are no excuses.  The team must play up to its capabilities.

ACC/B1G Challenge: Maryland vs #5 Ohio State

The ACC got off to an excellent start last night in the annual clash with the B1G.  Surely, Terp fans now feel conflicted given that we will officially be switching sides next year.  Please allow me to dispose you of any inclination you have to root for the B1G this year.  The Terps are in the ACC and we need the ACC to be rated as high as possible [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs NC State

This game should be called "Your rivals have a bigger rivals than you so we just stuck the to of you together" Game or the "Leftover Bowl".  Nothing is more depressing on "Rivalry Saturday" than realizing that you have no real rival.  It reinforces the mediocrity and irrelevance.  Oh well.  A new future begins next season. The Terps can salvage [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Morgan State

Don't you just hate games like this?  Maryland is coming off an encouraging yet tiring weekend of games at the Paradise Jam and has a big game coming up next week against top 10 Ohio State. Yet, tonight there is a tune-up game against Morgan State to contend with. This feels like the dreaded "trap game" to me.  Morgan State stinks but the young [...] Read More »

Dalonte Hill Resigns; Juan Dixon Joins Staff; Dustin Clark Promoted

In a surprise move (for me), Dalonte Hill resigned today effective immediately.  His DUIs and and related struggles have been well publicized but I really thought he'd have another chance. Not the case.  I don't know much about Dustin Clark other than that he has been filling in on the recruiting side while Hill was out with a leave of absence. [...] Read More »

Paradise Jam Final: Maryland vs Providence

Quite simply, this a huge game for Maryland.  Providence is a good team and Maryland needs a win against a quality team. I think the Terps need to focus on shot selection (as always) and rebounding. I'm rushing to get out of work so I will try to add some commentary later. [...] Read More »

Paradise Jam: Maryland vs. Northern Iowa

Here we go.  The Terps have a chance to salvage a bit from the weekend after yesterday's Tour de Force of ineptitude from Randy Edsall. Are they up to the task?  Unfortunately, the signs point to no. Offensively, the Terps looked lost in the first half against Marist, one of the worst teams in the entire NCAA.  Turgeon continues to let Nick F [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs BC

Today we find out if Maryland figured out all the problems last week against Virginia Tech or if they will descend back into ineptitude. BC is capable and will be ready to play.  I expect a tough contest. A win and it will be hard to argue that Randy Edsall hasn't had a successful season.  It would be a miraculous turnaround from the way we f [...] Read More »

Paradise Jam: Terps vs Marist

Today is the first day of the rest season.  Let's see if the Terps can bounce back from that HORRIFIC loss at home to Oregon State. First things first.  It's time for Turgeon to make some tough choices. 1.  Roddy Peters must start at PG.  Dez Wells is not a PG at this level.  Plain and simple.  Peters is raw but he can handle the rock and kno [...] Read More »

Terps Are A Mess; Lose To Lowly Oregon State

What a debacle. Nick Faust is just gawd awful.  He needs to be benched never to return.  He can't defend.  He's selfish. He does not know what to do with the ball.  He should just start doing the opposite of what he thinks is the right thing to do.  It will serve him better than his instincts. If only Faust were the only problem.  Shaq Cleare [...] Read More »
