Big Ten Quarterfinals Thread

For the first time since I was a junior in college, I will get to see the Maryland Terrapins play in their conference tournament.  The Terps check in as a #2 seed but I expect the matchup to be much more difficult than the standard 2/7 fare.

Unfortunately, Maryland does not matchup well with Indiana.  IU's guards are quicker than Maryland's and that has been hard for us to defend. The Hoosiers hit 11 3's last night against Northwestern.  If their hot hand continues, that may be too much for Maryland to overcome.

Indiana likes to run the floor and score.  Maryland hasn't scored more than 80 points since December 6th (look it up).  I expect the game to be competitive and my intuition tells me that the fact that Indiana needs the win more than we do could push them over the top.  I hope I'm wrong.

Go Terps!

#10 Maryland vs Nebraska

Both #9 Kansas and #8 Wichita State lost yesterday.  That means Maryland could be a top 8 team heading into the Big Ten Tournament if they can take care of business in Lincoln tonight. Maryland has won 6 in a row.  Nebraska has lost 7 in a row.  On paper, the Terps should roll.  We know that won't happen.  Maryland has t [...] Read More »

#10 Maryland vs Rutgers

We are in the home stretch folks.  The Terps play two winnable road games before heading to Chicago for the Big Ten Tournament.  Rutgers played the Terps close in College Park earlier in the year but they are a vastly inferior team.  Maryland should win easily and I expect a decent away crowd with all of the NY/NJ alumni heading to N [...] Read More »

#14 Maryland vs Michigan

Tuesday's game will forever be known as the Dez Wells Game.  What a performance he turned in. He willed the Terps to victory.  The crowd was electric.  Apparently, all that's needed to get the students to turn out for a game is a coordinated flash mob but I digress. The Terps are now poised to earn a protected seen in the NCAAs. & [...] Read More »

#14 Maryland vs #5 Wisconsin

The big game is here.  The Terps are desperate to prove that they can beat a good team following some disheartening blowout road losses and a few close wins against conference bottom feeders. There are many doubters out there (Seth Davis being the most prominent). From where I sit, I have seen the Terps improve their shooting dramatically o [...] Read More »

#16 Maryland vs Nebraska

After watching last night's epic Duke v North Carolina game, it is a little hard to stomach an underwhelming conference opponent like Nebraska coming to town.  Don't get me wrong.  This Nebraska squad is a decent one, it's just they aren't Duke or Carolina.  We are all excited about being a part of the Big Ten but the timing here hur [...] Read More »

#19 Maryland vs Penn State

The Terps pulled out a close one on Wednesday against a capable and talented Indiana squad.  It was the first game in nearly a month where Maryland's big three all played well. Damonte Dodd reemerged as a defensive presence and Jared Nickens finally found his stroke.  All of that translated into a win despite the Terps giving up 15 offens [...] Read More »

#19 Maryland vs Indiana

Somehow Maryland is still a ranked a team.  They haven't played well in nearly a month and there is no indication that anything is close to changing. The team has fallen behind by 10+ in the first half in 4 of their last 5 games.  Nothing is going right.  The defense is disjointed.  The offense is a mess. Tomorrow's game aga [...] Read More »

#17 Maryland vs Iowa

Maryland beat Penn State this week but it was hardly a resounding win.  Penn State went toe to toe with the Terps.  A month ago, Maryland probably wins the game by 15 points but things are a bit different now. With so many freshman logging crucial minutes, the Terps have hit a bit of a trough.  Melo Trimble is the straw that stirs [...] Read More »

#17 Maryland vs Penn State

The Terps have been stewing for a week as they try to work the stink off from the Ohio State debacle.  It's a pivotal time for Maryland and Coach Turgeon.  The Terps clearly lost some of their mojo during the most recent three game stretch.  Indiana shot the lights out.  Northwestern took us to the brink at home.  Ohio [...] Read More »
