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 nicely. Huerter hit the threes to get the Terps back in the game, while Jackson hit big shots down the stretch. Cowan had a critical steal late as well.
It was a nice win but the Terps can't behind like they did against good teams and expect to win. We'll see how they do tonight.
As for the football team, they will complete a successful first season under DJ Durkin if they win today. Qualifying for a bowl is more than most of us could have hoped for.
