After what has to have been the most drama ever to occur during the annual Finals break; it's back to the hardwood for the basketball team. 

Coming to town is the New Jersey Institute of Technology.  Located in exotic Newark, NJ, the Highlanders are 2-6 sporting wins over St. Josephs (NY) and NYU Poly. It doesn't get much more cupcake than this one.

The Terps are looking to bounce back after a disappointing ACC opener to Boston College.  Gary is in a tough spot.  In normal circumstances, it's the seniors that bring along the rest of the team.  With this year's team, it's the opposite.  The seniors are killing them. 

Cliff Tucker's late misses in the BC game really spelled doom for the Terps.  Gary is going to need the next few cupcake games to figure out his lineup. 

Hopefully, Tucker will use the time to get his head on straight.  Unfortunately, since he is 3.25 years into a 4 year career; it's doubtful that we should expect much else than what he is.  That means, more and more responsibility will fall on the shoulders of Messrs. Howard and Stoglin. 

Let's see how Gary doles out the minutes tonight. It will be an early indicator as to where the Terps could be headed in 2011.
