Maryland vs Morgan State

Don't you just hate games like this?  Maryland is coming off an encouraging yet tiring weekend of games at the Paradise Jam and has a big game coming up next week against top 10 Ohio State. Yet, tonight there is a tune-up game against Morgan State to contend with. This feels like the dreaded "trap game" to me.  Morgan State stinks but the young [...] Read More »

Paradise Jam: Maryland vs. Northern Iowa

Here we go.  The Terps have a chance to salvage a bit from the weekend after yesterday's Tour de Force of ineptitude from Randy Edsall. Are they up to the task?  Unfortunately, the signs point to no. Offensively, the Terps looked lost in the first half against Marist, one of the worst teams in the entire NCAA.  Turgeon continues to let Nick F [...] Read More »

Paradise Jam: Terps vs Marist

Today is the first day of the rest season.  Let's see if the Terps can bounce back from that HORRIFIC loss at home to Oregon State. First things first.  It's time for Turgeon to make some tough choices. 1.  Roddy Peters must start at PG.  Dez Wells is not a PG at this level.  Plain and simple.  Peters is raw but he can handle the rock and kno [...] Read More »

Terps Are A Mess; Lose To Lowly Oregon State

What a debacle. Nick Faust is just gawd awful.  He needs to be benched never to return.  He can't defend.  He's selfish. He does not know what to do with the ball.  He should just start doing the opposite of what he thinks is the right thing to do.  It will serve him better than his instincts. If only Faust were the only problem.  Shaq Cleare [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Abilene Christian

Terps look to rebound this evening against some cannon fodder named Abilene Christian.  There's a joke in here about Christians being thrown to the Turtles (as opposed to Lions) but I'm too lazy to come up with it. Before the rout ensues, I wanted to point out some interesting data points from the UConn game. - Terps got zero blocks.  UConn h [...] Read More »

Terps Fall Short In Brooklyn...Again

Some quick hits: -There are no moral victories.  -There were some things to be encouraged about but we all need to remember that Maryland STUNK for 32 minutes of the game. -Faust is a Pee I Gee PIG.  18 shots! He made 5 of them.  Faust is sure he is a crunch time guy.  He's not.  His shot selection is horrendous. -Dez is not a point gu [...] Read More »

Maryland vs UConn Game Thread

The Terps kick this season off in a few hours and excitement is building throughout Terpland. A couple things to watch for... Last year, Alex Len dominated Kentucky and Terp fans everywhere thought we'd see that for the rest of the year.  We were wrong.  The lesson:  don't take anything that happens tonight too seriously. Have last year's [...] Read More »

It's Basketball Season!

It's hard to fathom, but basketball season is upon us.  It's the most wonderful time of the year.  Maryland tips off the season against UConn in Brooklyn this Friday.  I think the game is a toss up.  Surely, Maryland is going to be better than last year's team.  Yes the Terps have lost a lottery pick but I think the Terps can improve without th [...] Read More »
