Terps Visit UNC For Last Shot At Glory

 This weekend's horrific loss at Georgia Tech torpedoed what was left of any slim hope to get an at-large bid.  What remains is for the Terps to start improving on demonstrating their ability to compete consistently with the best teams in the country.  UNC offers them this chance.

On paper, the Tarheels are the most talented in team in the country with possible exception of Kentucky.  Maryland is outgunned; but we have the players to compete if Turgeon can get his troops to play better defense. 

Pankey must rebound from his career-worst effort against Georgia Tech.  He needs to make his layups and stay in front of his man on the low block. 

Faust and Len need to prove that they can consistently perform well regardless of the venue and opponent.  Both have shown improvement of late; but a nice game from them tonight would bode well heading into the offseason.

At this point, Terrell Stoglin should realize that the teams plays its best when he is sharing the ball and finding the open man when teams double-team him.  Team chemistry will only improve as Terrell becomes more of a distributor.

The outlook is still bright for our Terps.  My biggest concern is at PG.  The Terps seem to banking all their hopes on Pe'Shon Howard next year and then pray that the Harrison twins come the following season.  I'd like to see the Terps hedge their bets a little.  Maryland needs a pure distributor who can direct the half court offense and cut down on turnovers.  The Terps are one of the worst teams in the country at getting assists and that likely won't improve much next season unless the Terps nab a late signee or a JuCo stud. To date, I've heard nothing on either front.

Terps Visit Georgia Tech

 The Terps travel to the worst team in the ACC this afternoon with a chance to get to .500 in the conference.  It's been a hard road for Turgeon and the Terps.  There have been injuries, suspensions, and a non-existent student body.  Yet, they've persevered.   The most encouraging sign to me is that the Terps played a [...] Read More »

Terps Get Big Win Vs Miami 75-70

That was a big win for Mark Turgeon and the Maryland Terrapins.  The PATHETIC home crowd notwithstanding, the Terps came through in the clutch.  It was heartening to see.  Good teams improve as the season goes on and that is what happened this evening.  Instead of the last 5 minutes being the Terrell Stoglin show, the Terps [...] Read More »

Miami Q&A and Game Thread

The last time the Terps played Miami, the good folks at Category6 were kind enough to participate in a Q&A about the game.  Well, we've reprised the format for the rematch.  We'll start with my questions and Cat6's responses end with the reverse.  Category6 has cross-posted this on their site as well. Here goes:  TS: Th [...] Read More »

Maryland Heads To UVA For Big Clash

 The Terps are getting better.  Despite losing PeShon Howard, the Terps cruised past BC on Thursday in what may have been their most complete game of the season.  The Terps got out in front early and they were able to maintain the lead for the entire game. Virginia, on the other hand, is coming off back to back losses including a do [...] Read More »

BC Thread

 The Terps open up a huge four game stretch this evening when they host BC.  In succession, the Terps are home with BC, at UVA, home vs. Miami and at Georgia Tech. If the Terps go 4-0, they are on the bubble.  That would put the Terps at 8-6 in the ACC and 18-10 overall.  It starts tonight.  BC is terrible and the Terps [...] Read More »

Happy Trails DOB!

Just one year ago, it was all smiles for Terp fans and Danny O'Brien.  He was coming off a great freshman season and us fans were looking at 3 more years of possibly our best QB since Scott McBrien.   Now he's gone. And he is sprinting out the door. And I don't blame him one bit. While the future may be better for the football pr [...] Read More »

Beat Duke (Please)

 Well, the Terps are up against it now. Pe'shon Howard is lost for the year, and with him went our only reliable ball handler.  How can the Terps go on? Here's the case.  Pe was the Terps 4th or 5th best scorer.  He turned the ball over a lot for a PG he wasn't shooting that well from the floor.  As long as someone (Faust, [...] Read More »

Pe'Shon Howard Out For Year With Torn ACL

The headline says it all.  Jeff Ermann is reporting that Howard is out for the year.  That's about the worst news the Terps could get heading into tomorrow's Duke game. This is terrible news for a great kid like Pe'Shon who's already fought back from injury once this year.  I've been saying for weeks that the Terps have serious [...] Read More »
