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 a work in progress.  That much is clear.  They have been infuriating to watch over the course of this season.  I'd argue, they are as frustrating as any Terps team ever. 

Yet, here we are. Maryland is on Joe Lunardi's radar which means that they are still in the conversation for an at-large bid.  It's hard to fathom but it is true.  If Maryland finishes strong with wins vs UNC and UVA plus a win or two in the ACCT, then will probably get in.

The first step is to win tonight against a UNC team that is playing well.  Last game they shot us out of the Dean Dome in the first half.  If we can hold them to a lower percentage this evening, we have a good chance of getting out with a W.

Maryland vs Wake

Terps are officially playing out the string.  Not even an unlikely 3-game winning streak to the end the season can save their NCAA hopes now. Wake sucks but somehow are tough at home.  I've given up hoping this team will figure it out.  Win or lose today, nothing changes about this season. [...] 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 [...] 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 [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Clemson

The BC loss is lingering around the fan base like a stale fart.  There is no denying its stink.  Many of us are now ready to give up on the season.  While it's not really over (I think if the Terps win out they are getting an at-large bid) few fans think that is a realistic scenario. Regardless of what happens at home vs Clemson, [...] Read More »

It's Time To Give Up Terp Fans

What a pathetic effort.  When will this program ever turn it around?  I am so sick of losing. The Terps have no answer when teams commit to doubling Alex Len.  And there you have it.  The Terps should not win another because it's that simple to beat them. Allen is our best option at point guard AND he's TERRIBLE at it. [...] 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 hi [...] 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 offici [...] 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.  Unfortunate [...] 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 schedul [...] Read More »
