Terps vs. College of Charleston Thread

Something about the College of Charleston scares me.  It's probably related to Maryland's first round defeat at the hands of CoC in the 1997 NCAA Tournament.

It could also be due to the Cougars upset of UNC last year.  Or maybe it's because their Coach, Bobby Cremins used to torch the Terps in the late 80s and early 90s when he was at Georgia Tech.

Regardless, the 2010 College of Charleston Cougars are a good team.  They are picked to finish at or near the top of their conference and they boast a slew of returning players.

Included among those is Andrew Goudelock a 20ppg scorer from last year.  He's a good 3PT shooter so the Terps will need to utilize their back court quickness to prevent wide open looks from distance.

Last year, the Cougars were comfortable scoring in the 70s and 80s, so they won't necessarily try to slow it down.  That should play to the Terps advantage.

From the Terps perspective; I'd like to see us decrease the number of turnovers.  I'd also like to see the guys knock down some threes.  We can't expect to run all year and just get lay ups.  Knocking down the open three in transition will need to be part of the formula.

If we can get past this game with a win; I will feel good about the Terps heading into next weekend/s clashes at MSG.

Post-Seattle U Observations

Last night, Terps looked like an entirely different team than the one we've become used to over the last four years. The Terps are as athletic as one could hope for.  Everyone can run the floor.  Our guards are quick.  Our big men can throw it down with force.  Perhaps the biggest revelation last night was that the Terps [...] Read More »

Terps vs. Seattle University Game Thread

I realize I still owe a "Part II" of my season preview; but I ran out of time and the season has crept up on me. The new-look 2010-11 Terps kick off their season tonight with what should be a tune-up game. Despite a storied history that dates back to the 1950s, Seattle University is relatively new to Division I.  The sc [...] Read More »

Maryland Falls Short in Miami

The Terps almost pulled it off.  Maryland had the lead in the final minute; ultimately could not hold on.  Miami connected on a 35 yard pass with 45 seconds left and that was that.   There is no such thing as a moral victory; but you have to be encouraged that Maryland went down to Miami and went toe to toe with The "U". [...] Read More »

Miami - Maryland Game Thread

The rubber meets the road for the Terps tomorrow.  If the Terps can go down to Miami and beat the Hurricanes; then we can officially start getting excited about an Atlantic Division title.  It will also get the Terps to seven wins which is beyond what most thought were possible.  The Hurricanes will be without Jacory Harris and t [...] Read More »

106 - 58!

OK.  It's only a preseason game.  There's no reason to get carried away.  But still!  The Terps steamrolled Florida Southern.  I know.  Florida Southern is a Division II school.  Last year, the Terps beat DII, Indiana, PA by 20 points. Does this 48 point drubbing mean that we will be twice as good as last year?&nb [...] Read More »

Maryland Crushes Wake; Space Commits to FSU

As the great Ron Burgandy once said, "that escalated quickly".  The Terps scored 45 straight points turning a 10-7 lead into a 55-7 lead.  It's the third largest margin of victory in Terps history.  Granted, Wake Forest is clearly an ACC bottom feeder; but only a good team can blow out a bad team like this.  Clear [...] Read More »

Maryland - Wake Forest Game Thread

Tomorrow is homecoming and the Terps are favored to beat a beleaguered Wake squad to move to 6-2.  If the oddsmakers are right; the Terps will head into their final four games having already secured bowl eligibility. Unfortunately, oddsmakers don't play the games. While it's true that Wake sits at 2-5; a closer look at their schedule gives [...] Read More »

Nick Faust Commits To Maryland

It's hard to accurately express what a big deal it is for Maryland to land a commitment from a Top 25 player like Faust.  His skills, as evidenced by this sizzle reel, haven't been seen in College Park in a long time.  He reminds me of Rudy Gay; only with a better jumper.  Based on straight rankings; he's the best Terp recruit [...] Read More »

Basketball Preview Part I - Rating The Newcomers

The Terps are heading into the season with six new faces.  Their level of success will determine the Terps season.  What can we expect from these guys? For my money, you can break the newcomers into three categories: Anything is a plus We are talking about Berand Wejs, and Haukur Palsson.  Granted, both players possess some intri [...] Read More »
