BB&T: Maryland vs George Washington

Do you remember when the BB&T Tournament used to be a high quality affair?  Much like the decline of the Terps fortunes over the years, so too has the BB&T sank to mediocrity.  Now, it just basically an annual game with either George Mason or George Washington.  Georgetown is the only thing keep this from being a great regional tournament but alas it is not in the cards.

Today, the Terps face a true test.  GW is 7-1 with a one of those wins coming against a top 20 team (Creighton).  The Terps can boast no such thing and as such will have their work cut out for them.

As Post beat writer, Alex Prewitt, excellently pointed out after the Ohio State game; the Terps defensive lapses killed them in Columbus.  One can hope that the film room disposed Nick Faust and Jake Layman of their bad habits.  Otherwise, it could be another ugly loss and a decent into another dreadful season of going nowhere.

This game is a must-win for Maryland.  BC looms and Thursday and 2-0 week will give the team some momentum heading into the cupcake stretch that ends the year.  We could actually be in a decent position heading into the ACC season.  It all starts with a win today.  There are no excuses.  The team must play up to its capabilities.
