Maryland @ UNC

2/4/2014 8:30:42 AM I reckon that the Terps have a 10% chance of making the NCAA Tournament.  They likely need to win 6 of their last 9 games to merit consideration.  With two games vs UVA, a road game at Duke and a home game against #1 (and undefeated) Syracuse, tonight's road game at UNC is a must-win.

Anyone who reads this blog has little hope that the Terps will win at North Carolina let alone win 6 of its next 9 games; but we are all going to watch and hope for the best. 

Now the Terps have looked better of late (yes I realize that Miami and VaTech are horrible).  Dez has stepped up and Jake Layman has been more aggressive.  Seth Allen seems to have cut down on his turnovers too.  It remains to be seen if this improvement is due to the crappy opposition or a real improvement.  We'll find out tonight.

UNC is an elite rebounding team but the Terps match up well with them.  This is a winnable game and the Turgeon and the Terps desperately need a win like this.  After the VaTech game, Turgeon said something to the effect of "I just want the team to look they are coached and enjoy playing together."  That's not exactly a high bar to set but wins like this can cement that desire.  The program desperately needs a win like this tonight. 

Will we get it?
