Terps Are A Mess; Lose To Lowly Oregon State

11/17/2013 7:55:02 PM What a debacle.

Nick Faust is just gawd awful.  He needs to be benched never to return.  He can't defend.  He's selfish. He does not know what to do with the ball.  He should just start doing the opposite of what he thinks is the right thing to do.  It will serve him better than his instincts.

If only Faust were the only problem.  Shaq Cleare has zero offensive game and is not a defensive stopper.  What does he bring to the table?  Mitchell is a force down low but he can't pass out of the double team and apparently can't shoot a free throw to save his life. 

The team defense was just atrocious.  The Terps could not stop anyone from penetrating into the lane.

Roddy Peters has athleticism. He can handle the rock and knows how to make a good pass.  He is able to penetrate too.  It doesn't appear that he has an outside shot but he is thus far a pleasant surprise.  The offense goes nowhere when he is not in the game.

Layman and Smotrycz aren't involved enough on offense because Dez Wells and Faust hog the ball too much.  Defensively, they are both liabilities.

Turgeon is in trouble.  Whatever he is doing is not working.  This team should be better than it is and that responsibility falls solely on the head coach.  If this doesn't turn around quickly this season will be over before it starts.
