NCAA Screw Job

3/15/2015 7:39:54 PM I don't even know where to start.  The Terps got served one of the most unfair seeding in recent history.  A team with a 2-0 record against the Big 12, including a win against the conference champion, got seeded behind three Big 12 teams. 

If only that were the only insult.  The Terps got shipped in Kentucky's side of the draw too. A top 10 team with a 12 RPI got seeded 14th.  Double You Tee Eff, NCAA?

Now it is time to make lemonade out lemons.  The Terps have a tough opening game against Valpo and then a likely matchup against a good West Virginia squad.  The Mountaineers are the 5th best offensive rebounding squad in the country and that's an area where the Terps are particularly weak. Uh Oh. 

Hopefully, Maryland will use this snub as a point of motivation and get to the Sweet 16 anyway.  If they do, they'll get to play the role of David against Kentucky's Goliath. 

At least that would be a good measure of where we are heading into next year.
