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 tonight; but it must continue over the weekend when UVA comes to town.  Maryland's back half ACC schedule is much easier than front half.  Most of the tough opponents are at home (Duke, UNC).  It's not inconceivable that Maryand finish the regular season win of seven of their last eight games.  That's the kind of finish we need to ensure we are dancing. 

We all liked what we saw against Wake.  The Terps can and should beat just about anyone when they are hitting jumpers.  The inisde play has been dominant when the Terps are hitting from the outside.  Teams can't match up with the big men anyway and when we hit shots, it's over.  The turnovers are still a huge problem but it's manageable when good shooting our rebounding advantage are compounded. 

That's the formula.  Hit shots, rebound, the interior game takes care of itself.  If we can also limit the turnovers, so much the better. 

The Terps desperately need a road win to make up for the home FSU loss.  That needs to happen tonight and then we can start thinking about getting over .500.  A good UVA team and Duke loom so a loss tonight would be potentially disastrous.

Maryland vs Wake

If you are looking for a silver lining from last Wednesday's soul crushing loss; it would be that the team finally put the ball in the bucket with some consistency.  They didn't set the world on fire but they finally topped 70 points for the first time in a month. It's little solace since the major issues still remain.  The Terps lack [...] 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. No [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Duke

The Terps head to Cameron today to take on a Duke squad that is licking its wounds after a pasting vs. Miami earlier in the week.  That game should give the Terps encouragement.  Not only does it make Duke look beatable, but it also gives the Terps a better feeling about their loss to Miami. That loss was one of the worst games I've e [...] Read More »

Maryland vs BC

Happy MLK Day everyone.  I hope that whatever you are doing that you have time to contemplate what today is supposed to be about. It's not just a "day off" but a moment to honor the struggle of a people and ability of love to triumph over hate. While Baltimore and it's expats (me!!) are trying to come down from yesterday's high, t [...] Read More »

Maryland vs UNC

UNC is not the same UNC we are used to seeing.  They look vulnerable.  Desmond Hubert is regularly involved in things.  Remember him?  Desperate Terp fans were briefly enamored with him Jordan Williams abandoned us.  Regardless, this is not the same UNC team were used to seeing. However, these Terps aren't the same Terps [...] Read More »

Terps Get Big Win; Double-U Tee Eff Is Wrong With Offense??

I can't for the life of me figure out what is wrong with the offense.  Turgeon's complaining that they can't even run his plays out of timeouts.  Len, Cleare, Faust, Wells are all missing layups and dunks.  No one can hit a jump shot. Is it the point play?  Is it Wells? Is it Turgeon? The Terps scored 91 points against Vir [...] Read More »

Maryland vs NC State Thread

Like the rest of Terp Nation, this two-game sojourn into the wilderness of hideous basketball has me concerned.  For the most part, I chalked it up to lackluster PG play combined with an inability to hit shots.  Both things are fixable. That was until Mark Turgeon floated out the idea of moving Nick Faust over to point.  Now, I'm [...] Read More »

The Wheels Fall Off In Miami

What just happened?  I thought I turned on a college basketball game and instead I watched a girl's middle school basketball team take on the Miami Hurricanes.  I deleted all traces of the game from my DVR for fear that it would permeate into my HD TV and somehow destroy it. Whatever momentum, sense of self, and offensive flow that the [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Miami

I'd say half the Terp fans out there are Ravens fans and the other half are Skins fans.  The former are riding high right now after the most exhilarating win in franchise history.  The unlikely playoff run has proven the power leadership can have on helping teams achieve goals. Ray Lewis has inspired the team to play at a level they'v [...] Read More »
