Maryland @ Virginia

2/10/2014 8:40:54 AM How many times have we been here with this team?  This is not the first time the Terps have strung together some decent performances (3 wins in 4) only in the past, they've fallen flat in a big game where they've had the chance to prove themselves. 

Can they buck the trend tonight?  UVA is on fire and is playing like one of the best team in the ACC.  They are stout defensively and don't turn the ball over.

The Terps desperately need this win.  The NCAA bubble is filled with weak teams and somehow the Terps are still lurking with an RPI in the high 60s low 70s.  A win at Top 20 UVA would vault the Terps 10+ places.  For that to happen, Maryland needs to play close to perfect.  They need big time performances from the scorers (Allen and Wells), shut down defense from Faust, and rebounding and rim protection from Mitchell, Cleare, and Graham.

If the Terps can put a win together, I predict that they will be dancing in March.  A loss and the middling continues.
