Michigan State Thread - NCAA Round 2

3/21/2010 9:38:46 AM Form here on out, every game the Terps play is the biggest game the team has played since the National Championship game in 2002.  Simply put, Maryland has an incredible opportunity to make a deep run this year.

Yesterday's events have only increased the urgency. Now that Kansas - the odds on favorite - has been eliminated; the Spartans and the Terps alike can now see a path to Indianapolis that didn't seem likely when the Tournament.

To deny that is foolish.  To think ahead is suicidal. Maryland must put aside the distraction and focus on their opponent.  All signs point to a depleted Michigan State squad.

Their frontcourt defensive stopper, Chris Allen, has a foot injury and is questionable.  The Spartans point guard, Kalin Lucas is also nursing a injury.  I expect that we will still get their best effort today.

Greivis Vasquez has waited his whole life for this moment. His shot hasn't been dropping lately so look for the boys to try to get Greivis some early looks.   Milbourne, Gregory, and Williams will need to be men on the interior today and stay out of foul trouble while still holding their own on the glass.

Hayes just needs to keep being Mr. Reliable.

OK.  That's it.  Almost game time.  Enjoy it wherever you are and let's hope there is something to write about tomorrow.
