Maryland @ Virginia

How many times have we been here with this team?  This is not the first time the Terps have strung together some decent performances (3 wins in 4) only in the past, they've fallen flat in a big game where they've had the chance to prove themselves. 

Can they buck the trend tonight?  UVA is on fire and is playing like one of the best team in the ACC.  They are stout defensively and don't turn the ball over.

The Terps desperately need this win.  The NCAA bubble is filled with weak teams and somehow the Terps are still lurking with an RPI in the high 60s low 70s.  A win at Top 20 UVA would vault the Terps 10+ places.  For that to happen, Maryland needs to play close to perfect.  They need big time performances from the scorers (Allen and Wells), shut down defense from Faust, and rebounding and rim protection from Mitchell, Cleare, and Graham.

If the Terps can put a win together, I predict that they will be dancing in March.  A loss and the middling continues.

Maryland vs Florida State

Here we go again. Maryland has yet another opportunity to beat a decent opponent.  FSU waxed the turtles down in Tallahassee and if our boys have any spine; they'll be motivated to show well. We'll see.  I have not seen any evidence that this team is anything but mediocre. [...] Read More »

Damian Prince Commitment Thread

The Terps failed yet again to beat a decent team on the road so its best to get that taste out of our mouths. Hopefully, the Terps landing a 5 star recruit this morning will help with that.  Damian Prince would be a huge get for Edsall and would give the Terps offensive line and immediate boost heading into the B1G. [...] Read More »

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 wil [...] Read More »

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 »
