#19 Maryland vs NC Central

12/9/2014 8:23:38 PM Man, it feels good have a number in front of Maryland's name, doesn't it?

The Terps started slow and won going away against a decent Winthrop squad.  NC Central comes to town with a less impressive resume but they are preseason MEAC favorite and likely NCAA Tournament team. 

The Terps should be ready having settled into life without Dez Wells. Jake Layman took over like a leader should in the second half against Winthrop and his continued development is crucial if the Terps are going to beat teams like Oklahoma State in 2 weeks time.

The best part about this season thus far has been the lack of turnovers.  It's a credit to Melo Trimble's steady play that the Terps are taking such good care of the rock. This is Melo's team and entirely fine with that.

As for NC Central, anything short of a 20 point just won't do.  The Terps need to continue to perform up to expectations in order for them to have the confidence to go into Stillwater and win in 2 weeks.
