Maryland vs Virginia, The Quest For Mediocrity

The headline says it all I think.  The Terps have limped through the ACC Season and are surely poised to be left out of the NCAA yet again. The only April excitement for us is whether or not five-star recruit Dwayne Morgan will choose the Terps on April 5th. It's incredibly frustrating for fans but I think the program is on the way up. This team [...] Read More »

Maryland vs UNC

The Terps have their latest "must-win" game of the season tonight. It will be in the midst of a snowstorm.  If the crowd shows up, we should give UNC all they can handle. The last game against Wake was promising.  The team played a style that was reminiscent of the early season form.  Pe'shon Howard finally played well.  The Terps are still [...] Read More »

Picking Up The Pieces

It's time for some tough love. Turgeon said the team would get better.  He was wrong.  He didn't count on Pe'shon Howard completely melting down.  Remember, Howard was averaging 6 assists/game before the ACC season started with very few turnovers. It was certain to expect a dip when the ACC season started but he degenerated to the point of being [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Georgia Tech

The calculus could not be simpler.  Win and the quest for an NCAA berth continues.  Lose and the dream of an at-large berth is over. If the team can't seem to find their focus based on the above, then forget the season anyway.  Winning on the road is hard no matter where it is, but Maryland faces two bottom of the conference teams this week (GT [...] Read More »

Terps vs BC

This is the classic letdown game if ever there was one.  Everyone knows it. The fans, the coaches, the players (maybe, hopefully).  What can be done to prevent it?  Well, for one thing, Maryland needs to feed the post. Alex Len demonstrated on Saturday why he is a likely Lottery Pick in June.  If BC chooses to double-team him, Len must be effec [...] Read More »

We Beat Duke. Now What?

I've been going to the Comcast Center for the better part of 10 years and I've never seen the place quite like that.  With or without the student section's commercial break flash mob; the arena was electric for the entire game.  The stadium was a big factor in the victory.  The game was incredibly exciting yet HORRENDOUSLY officiated. Yes, Duke [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Duke

The season is almost over and I get the sense that Maryland is still trying to find its identity.  That's one of their key problems.  The Terps don't know who they are or what they do well. Wells and Faust want to get out and run yet the Terps are a dominant rebounding team which lends itself to the halfcourt offense.  Unfortunately, with no qua [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Virginia

The importance of today's game can't be overstated. The Terps are likely going to fighting for the 5th at-large ACC bid with the Cavaliers.  That means that Maryland must at a minimum split the series with them. Virginia is coming off a 37-point drubbing of Clemson. Yes, 37 points.  UVA has had a relatively weak non-conference schedule (much li [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Virginia Tech

Every game from here on out is critical for the Terps--especially the road games.  Va Tech is not a good team.  Maryland wiped the court with them last month in Comcast. It's fair to expect a much closer affair in Blacksburg tonight; but anything less than a win is unacceptable.  The Terps need an undefeated week in the worst way.  It's starts [...] Read More »

Maryland vs FSU

For the second time this month, I find myself in Las Vegas at a sales conference while Maryland is playing Florida State.  Lets hope the outcome is different.   The second half of that game was the beginning of the downward spiral for the Terps. Lowlights included 13 straight missed shots as Maryland frittered away 12 point lead. Now the Terp [...] Read More »
