Villanova Game Thread

12/6/2009 2:24:18 PM The Terps have their last chance to make a good impression on the Tournament selection committee tonight.  Villanova comes to the Verizon Center with an unblemished record and lofty #3 ranking.  Maryland, on the other hand, has been decidedly uneven.  Blown out of Maui, the Terps bounced back nicely against in Bloomington against the Hoosiers.

Say what you will about the young Hoosiers, but a road win is a road win.  Road wins help the RPI.  So do neutral site victories against top 3 teams.  By my estimation, Maryland will need to play near perfect ball to get the W.  Hayes and Mosley need to continue their strong offensive play.  Our freshman will need to clog up the middle and get their fair share of rebounds.

As for our senior leaders, Vasquez and Milbourne will need to lead the way.  The Terps can beat Indiana with Vasquez shooting 4-14 from the field.  The same is not true of Villanova.

The home crowd will be pushing Maryland.  A win tonight and the nightmare in Maui is forgotten.  The Terps have a punchers chance.  It just depends on which team decides to show up.
