Maryland vs UMBC

The Terrapins begin life without the services of Justin Jackson tonight. Diagnosed with a season-ending labrum tear, Jackson is officially shut down.

Despite his horrid play this season, this is a big blow for Maryland. Jackson is the team’s leading rebounder (!!) and he’s also one of a couple players capable of creating his own shot. Sadly, we haven’t seen much of that this season. The hope is that much of that has been due to this lingering shoulder issue and we’ll get the freshman version of Jackson next season. Unfortunately, it has made the task for this season much harder.

Maryland appears to be squarely headed for the NCAA bubble. They lack a signature non conference win (Butler?) and have a head scratching loss to St. Bonaventure. The B1G conference appears to be down this year, so for Maryland to be safe, they need at least 10 conference wins maybe 11. That’s a tall order and it will be incumbent on folks like Ceko, Fernando, and Morsell to really step up and fill in for Jackson.

The Terps could have or should have won each of their games so far. It’s becoming a broken record, but Maryland must get control of the turnover situation. Jackson was a big offender but the Terps managed 17 turnovers against Farleigh Dickinson without him so the problem is team wide.

What’s exciting is that the Terps have shot the ball well and rebounded. It’s time to cut down on the turnovers. Let’s start tonight.

Maryland vs Farleigh Dickinson

The Terps are in the midst of the cupcakes and that continues with Farleigh Dickinson. Finals are over and hopefully the mini layoff didn’t create rust for the Terps to shake off. Let’s hope for a game with limited turnovers and continued hot shooting. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Catholic

The Terps play Catholic University tonight in what amounts to an exhibition game. Catholic is not a D1 or whatever they call it now school so this game doesn’t count for or against their NCAA resume. By against I mean it doesn’t effect their strength of schedule. Hopefully the Terps don’t commit 20 turnovers against this level of competition. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Gardner-Webb

Terp play Gardener-Webb today. This should be a blowout and probably will be. Maryland is coming off a resounding win against Ohio whereby they actually pulled away at the end.  Unfortunately the Terps still committed 18 turnovers- a ridiculous number that is going to continue to cost them games and could ultimately keep them out of [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Ohio

late getting this up. Blame my newborn twins. Ohio is a mid major. No leqd is safe with Maryland. Sets up for an evening of frustration but ultimately a win that does not hurt or help us. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Illinois

I’m running out of things to say about this team. This run of underachievement has been demoralizing. I don’t want to pile on and blame Turgeon. Terps Twitter is saying he can’t coach. I disagree. His game plan against Syracuse was great. He solved their zone. The Terps failed defensively. To me, the larger issue is something a bit more n [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Purdue

The Terps are going to have to make it happen during the Big Ten season now that they have two regrettable and preventable losses in the non conference slate. The season hinges on Maryland’s ability to limit turnovers and figure out how to execute in crunch time. They don’t have a go to guy so the need to run offense. Melo ain’t walking throug [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Syracuse

I’m not sure I have the stomach to watch this game tonight. “But Jeremy, the Terps crushed New Mexico on Saturday including a dominating 27-6 run to the start the game” you say. To that, I respond that the Terps committed 22 turnovers in that win including 8 by Anthony Cowan. The chronic lack of ball security cannot end well for this team. Yes [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Penn State (F) and New Mexico (B)

Games like last night make one question the point of following this team. For all the talent and pedigree, the Terps’ performance was absolutely pathetic. One could point to the endless turnovers, or one could point to the complete and total lack of execution down the stretch. Perhaps you’d like to harp on the poor shot selection? Regardl [...] Read More »

Maryland vs St. Bonaventure

The Terps begin their road to the Destin Florida blah blah blah Tournament this evening against St. Bonaventure. The Bonnies have been in the A-10 for decades and have spent most of that time in the bottom half of the conference. Nevertheless, they are not cupcakes. I’d classify them as an upper-tier mid major. They are capable of beating big confe [...] Read More »
