Maryland vs Arizona State

11/24/2014 10:34:06 AM Today is when the rubber meets the road.  Today is when the bullets start flying for real.  Use whatever cliche you wish.  The young Terps will fast their first real competition of the season when they tip-off against Arizona State in Kansas City this evening.  I think this Tournament used to be sponsored by O'Reilly Auto Parts but who really knows anymore.  The bottom-line is that the Terps will find out how they stack up against a power conference opponent.

ASU is coached by our old friend, Herb Sendek.  He graduated/lost a bunch of guys and has replaced most of them with jucos. Translation: the Sun Devils are still learning how to play together too.

Our Terps struggled against their last opponent, Fordham.  Shots didn't fall in the first half and Terps struggled to find answers inside.  That said, they came out in the second half and dominated as they should.  There are still so many reasons to be concerned. Can Layman hang in there against stronger defenders?  Can Trimble run the offense against aggressive defenses?  What will happen to our rebounding?

We are going to learn in a few hours.
