Wake Forest Beckons

The ACC schedule is wonderful in that it offers near immediate opportunities to bounce back from defeats.  Yet, for those teams with issues that have not been fixed; losses can stack up in a hurry.

The Terps hung in but never really gave me the sense that they could be NC State on Sunday.  Wake should not present that same problem but they are frisky, not to mention undefeated in the ACC.

Hopefully, the fans will finally come out and fill Comcast to aid our Terps in their effort to gain their first ACC victory. Last weekend proved that no games are promised as many of the favorites went down. 

The Terps need to figure out how to get consistency from someone on the interior. Stoglin is amazing and Len is doing wonders cleaning up misses; but no one is creating opportunities in the paint.  Padgett has done it flashes, but he lacks the finishing touch. 

Free throw shooting and turnovers are the other two bugaboos that must be dealt with.  Turgeon must be at his wits end regarding both.  Howard must be more decisive and dribble less. 

For Wake's part, they are a statistical twin of the Terps.  Both teams average roughly the same in points and assists per game.  Wake shoots a slightly better percentage, while MD is the better rebounding team.

The game will be close, but the Terps should hold on down the stretch.

Maryland Comes Up Short Against NC State

For large stretches of the game, the Terps played a disjointed, frustrating style.  Stoglin was his usual beast self and kept us in the game.  It was only at the end of the game did he start jacking up shots outside of the offense.  Padgett showed flashes, Len did too but there just was not enough firepower coming from inside [...] Read More »

Maryland Opens ACC At NC State

The Terps and Wolfpack square off in the final game of the ACC's opening weekend.  Thus far, it was a weekend filled with surprises.  Clemson upended FSU by 20.  Wake squeaked by Virginia Tech while GT and Miami gave Duke and Virginia all they could handle. Before yesterday's game, the conventional wisdom had Clemson, GT, and Wake [...] Read More »

Terps v. Samford Thread

The Terps fanbase is still abuzz from Tuesday's enthralling debut of Alex Len.  His performance showcased immense raw skill and potential. Len began his night on fire, nailing his first four shots.  It wasn't all peanuts and balloons as Len cooled off in the second half and also demonstrated his lack of experience with turnovers and a [...] Read More »

Terps Pull Away Late as Len Impresses In Debut

At times it wasn't pretty; but the Terps looked like a complete team tonight.  Five players scored in double digits (Howard, Faust, Len, Padgett, Stoglin).  The Terps also dominated on the glass (49-28). Despite the massive rebounding disparity; the game was relatively close. Albany took outstanding care of the basketball only turning [...] Read More »

Terps vs Albany: The Beginning Of An Era?

I know that there are readers who will find my headline a tad hyperbolic; but I can't help it.  I'm excited.  It's not every day that a 7'2" man-child with good footwork comes into your life.  Such is the case with Alex Len and I'm all in. I understand the need to temper expectations, and frankly, my expectations are not that [...] Read More »

The Return Of Pe

Lots to talk about in College Park right now.  Tomorrow, we expect to see the long awaited return of Maryland's only true point guard, Pe'Shon Howard.  Howard's foot injury has healed quicker than anyone could have hoped, and as a result, Terp fans get to see what this team looks like with a real point guard. The optimistic side of me [...] Read More »

FIU vs Terps Game Thread

Isaiah Thomas comes to College Park this evening to take on the Terps with his 3-6 Panthers squad. I'm beyond the point of expecting any easy victories this season and I think tonight will be no exception.  Expect a game that is played with no more than a single digit lead for 40 minutes. The big news tonight was that there were rumors t [...] Read More »
