Terps Trounce FSU; UNC Now Means Something

The Terps played a great game. Granted the last 7 minutes looked ugly; but they were able to extend the lead and FSU is a great defensive team.  It was the Terps best effort of the season.

Maryland finally has an RPI 50 win temporarily.  I say that because FSU is teetering on the edge (ranked #50 at tipoff) and will likely drop out tomorrow.  Oh well. Maryland can't worry about that now anyway.  They need to put as many wins on the docket as possible.

Stoglin continued his brilliance with a big second half and the Terps proved they could score even with Jordan Williams trapped in a forest of giants for most of the game.

Dino Gregory has become the leader of the team.  Steady as a rock, he never takes a bad shot.  He leads by example and now he is shooting the lights out.  If we make the Tournament, it will be because of his leadership and Stoglin's emergence.

Bowie played a nice game.  He dished out 6 assists and was aggressive in the right ways.  I still can't trust him the way I do the freshman; but I prefer him to Mosley and Cliff Tucker's decomposing corpse.

Mosley forced things a little; but at least he was alive out there.  He even hit a three!  Cliff Tucker might as well quit the team at this point.  He acts as if he barely cares.  It's really quite sad.

So now, the Terps have earned a meaningful game at UNC.  If the Terps can muster a great performance and beat the Tarheels; they are a decent shot to make the Dance.  But make no mistake; even a win at UNC will not have earned the Terps a ticket.  For that to occur, Maryland needs to win out and probably beat either BC or VT in the ACCT.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves.  UNC is winnable.  Maryland has won 4 of 5 against UNC.  There should be no fear when we go down to Chapel Hill.  They are a good team on hot streak; but Maryland can win.  The season hinges on Sunday.  Congrats to the Terps for getting there with a pulse.

Terps Search For Breakthrough vs FSU

Here we are again.  The Terps have yet to prove their mettle against top 50 teams and with season winding down; are in desperate need of a breakthrough. FSU comes to town missing its best player, Chris Singleton.  The 6'9" forward represents 20% of the Seminole's scoring and 25% of the team's blocks.  He's also their leading [...] Read More »

NC State Thread

NC State is a bad team, so the Terps should be fine today.  You see, the Terps can't beat good teams, only the bad ones.  State qualifies as bad, so that mean a likely victory. The Terps have virtually no chance of making the Tournament.  Aside from winning out and making a deep run into the ACC Tournament, the Terps are headed t [...] Read More »

Terps Squander Stoglin's Mastery

For all intents and purposes, the season is now over.  NIT here we come.  Adrian Bowie, Cliff Tucker, and Sean Mosley have gotten worse as the season has progressed.  They have been terrible in this last stretch of games. Despite their dreadful performances; the Terps were in this game to the end thanks to the dazzling play of Te [...] Read More »

Virginia Tech Thread

Sorry that I'm late getting the thread up; it's been a busy day at the office.  The Terps need to win their games.  That's the bottom line. Maybe tonight's the night they find some momentum.  Who knows?  It's an opportunity to get a little revenge.  Hopefully, the smell of Cliff Tucker's decomposing corpse won't interfere w [...] Read More »

Play The Freshman

The Terps have pretty much run out of chances this year.  The upperclassmen (Mosley included) have failed to elevate this team to victory during various crucial opportunities throughout the season.  As far as I'm concerned, their time is up. If the Terps are to find a way back into the season; it will need to come from the freshmen [...] Read More »

Terps Are An NIT Team

Today's game was lost in 2007.  You see, that was the year that Cliff Tucker, Adrian Bowie, and Dino Gregory came to campus. Of that illustrious group, Dino is the only one in the class who has improved during his time on campus.  If this were the 1990s, none of these kids would have even sniffed a campus visit, let alone play a combined [...] Read More »

Beat BC Or Busted Bubble

There is not a realistic scenario where the Terps can lose in Boston tomorrow and still make the Tournament.  Sure, they can lose; then catch fire and run the table.  Remember though that I said "realistic scenario".  If the Terps can't BC, they arent' winning at Tech and UNC. As for the matchup, the Terps should beat th [...] Read More »

Longwood Comes To Town (If That's Their Real Name)

If you had asked me whether I think it is more likely that the name "Longwood" belonged to a Division I University or an 80s Pornstar; I would have gone with Pornstar.  I mean is there a better porn name than "Richard Longwood"? My goodness. Regardless, the pathetic "Lancers" (that's their real mascot) come t [...] Read More »
