Clemson Game Thread

Here we go again.  Another winnable road test for the Terps. 

Our young Terps have been able to hang in with just about everyone they've played over the last month.  Unfortunately, they've come away with only one win.  That must change tonight if the Terps will harbor any hopes of the postseason (that includes NIT). 

This least five games have been frustrating.  The Terps seem close to putting it all together; but they lack the ability to close.  There are many theories.  they range from not having a second scorer to having too much 1 on 5 from Terrell Stoglin.  Another big factor is that we are dealing with mostly freshman and sophomores and they just haven't learned how to win in crunch time.

Like most things, it's probably a little of everything.  Clemson presents a test because Littlejohn Coliseum is a tough place to play.  The Terps have more talent and can walk away with a win if they execute. That means good FT shooting and minimizing turnovers.

Let's see what happens.

Terps To Entertain Carolina

Surely, today's game at Comcast is the last chance the Terps have to get a signature win. The road in the ACC has proven quite treacherous for the Terps and I expect it will continue to be.  Comcast, on the other hand, has seen the best of what the Terps have to offer.  If we discount the early season under manned loss to Illinois; the Te [...] Read More »

Refs Steal Game Away From Terps

 OK.  The headline belies reality somewhat.  Terps squandered chances in the second OT but I don't care.  You've got two teams who played their heart out and the referees were not up to the challenge of the moment. The second OT opened with a clear and blatant offensive goaltending call yet the whistle did not blow.  Th [...] Read More »

Miami Q&A and Game Thread

 I'm reprising the oft-used blogger Q&A exchange for the Terps upcoming tilt in Miami tomorrow.  The good folks at the excellently-named Category6 have asked me a few questions about our Terps and I've returned the favor by asking them a few of my own about the Hurricanes.  We'll start with my questions to them and end with my an [...] Read More »

Terps Host Virginia Tech

 The Terps have just finished a brutal three-game stretch and came up empty handed.  Not a pelt to speak of.  There were some encouraging moments and some discouraging ones.  Terps hung in against FSU, Temple, and Duke.  In fact, most of those games were close to even with 10 minutes left to play. The Terps collapsed ea [...] Read More »

DUKE Q&A and Game Thread

 This is the least emotionally ready that I have been for a Maryland-Duke that I've been in years.  I have an emotional hangover from the brutal stomach-punch loss my Ravens took on Sunday plus I'm frustrated with the Terps recent play.  The Temple game left me deflated.  So, I'm trying something a little different.  Th [...] Read More »

Gary Reflects

Courtesy of the Washington Post, I thought I would reprint an except of a recent Gary Williams radio interview.  There is more on the Post's website, but I thought his reflection on the Michigan State loss in 2010 was pretty interesting! “A lot of teams lose during the year, but you can’t lose during the tournament,” Williams said. The l [...] Read More »

Terps Come Up Short, Again

For me, yesterday's loss at the hands of an eminently beatable Temple squad was the first truly frustrating loss of the season. Sure, I've been disappointed with other losses this year, but I always felt the other team was simply the better one and the Terps were learning on the job, so at least the loss was productive Yesterday was different.&nbs [...] Read More »

Terps Step Out Of ACC For Big Opportunity Against Temple

 I just commuted home from Mexico and landed in a Chicago snowstorm during rush hour.  I'm spent. The good news is that I don't have to play tomorrow at 11am. Our Terps however, do and will.  The Owls present a stiff test as they always seem to.  Already, Temple has knocked off Duke this year, so the Terps are going to be big r [...] Read More »

Terps Hit The Road - FSU Thread

Come on! We only had 2 days to enjoy the latest win?  I wish we could have enjoyed it a bit longer, but the schedule is the schedule. Tonight is a big one.  Clearly not a must-win, but a win would definitely open some eyes.  It could go one of two ways.  Either FSU is flying high off of their whooping of UNC and thinking t [...] Read More »
