Two Made Jump Shots

Wow.  That was some shooting display.  Outside of Sean Mosley's desperation three at the end of the half and Nick Faust's fadeaway in garbage time; the Terps only hit layups.  That's not to say that they hit many of them. The Terps shot 26% from the field and 56% from the charity stripe. No Terp scored in double figures.

I realize that Alabama's got one of the better defenses in the NCAA; but the Terps looked like a high school team out there.  It was rough.  On a positive note, it's impossible to imagine that Maryland could ever play worse than that.  Sean Mosley bricked everything.  So did Faust and Stoglin,  They are the Turgeon's three best shooters.  It has to get better. Doesn't it?

Outside of the atrocious shooting, I thought the Terps played great defense, but got destroyed on the boards. Ashton Pankey tallied 10 boards but there is just not enough bulk up front.  Alex Len will help.

It's pretty clear that the walk ons are useless against a good team, so the 7 scholarship guys will have to do it all.  Thin up front and streaky in the back, the Terps are going to need to come out strong if they hope to win games this year.

We've been saying that the Terps will be lucky to escape PR with two wins.  Moving day is tomorrow.  Wichita State is the likely opponent.

Puerto Rico Tip - Off Thread - Game 1

Our Terps get a big test tonight.  It's the middle of the work day for me so I have zero time to put up any pregame analysis.  I know that they will be ready to go.  I'm interested to see how Turgeon has prepared them. I'll be watching on tape delay.  Go Terps! [...] Read More »

Turgeon Era Begins With A Win

The Terps held off a pesky UNC Wilmington squad tonight.  The final tally shows a 9 point win for the Terps but the reality is that the outcome was never in doubt.  After halftime, the Terps took control and pushed the lead to double digits. Unfortunately, they weren't able to extend the lead to 20+ points like we are used to seeing.& [...] Read More »

Maryland Tips Off Against UNCW

I've been away all day, so I apologize for getting the thread up late.  Two quick thoughts: 1. Drew Nicholas ain't walking through the door, so the Terps better come to play. 2. Apparently, Terrell Stoglin is not starting.  It's clear Turgeon is going to value the basketball this year at all costs. [...] Read More »

Maryland - Notre Dame Thread

For Maryland fans, today's game should have been the most anticipated of the season.  A chance to knock off the most storied program in college football history.  Instead, Maryland has limped into this game in such a sorry state, that it's hard to imagine anything but a blowout. Maybe the Terps will surprise us, but it seems pretty obv [...] Read More »

Paterno Fired As An Entire Student Body Disgraces Itself

"I was just following orders" didn't work for the Nazis at Nuremburg just as "I notified my superiors 9 yrs ago" doesn't work today.  That's the lens through which this scandal needs to be viewed.  Joe Paterno stood in silence for nearly a decade (at a minimum) while credible evidence existed that his long-time col [...] Read More »

Football Program in DEEEEP Trouble

I know we have moved on from football for the most part, but my goodness. I know we have issues and I blame Edsall for most of it, but the end of the game was enough for me to lose any confidence I had in Edsall turning this program around (after he turned it the other way!) 3 minutes left... down by 3 scores.  Sure, a comeback would ta [...] Read More »

Northwood v Maryland: Inside The Box Score

Full disclosure:  I did not get to see the game on TV so I'm relegated to delving into the box score.  A couple of nuggets stick out: - Maryland turned the ball over 23 times.  Northwood turned it over 11 times. - Maryland shot 59% from the charity stripe (19-32) to Northwood's 81% (17-21) Those two statistics explain why the [...] Read More »

Men's Basketball Exhibition Thread

The Terps play their one and only exhibition game tonight.  More importantly, it's the only time we will get to see Alex Len until December 28th. I'm not sure what to expect because Turgeon has to prepare the team for the first part of the season.  However, I expect Turgeon knows where the fans heads are and will give us a bit of a sho [...] Read More »
