“Top Ten” – Obstacles The Maryland Terps Men’s Basketball Team Faces This Season

There is much to like about the current Maryland Terps men’s basketball team. Their guard tandem of Hayes and Vasquez has a year of experience playing together – which is huge in college ball at this level. Gist seems ready to assume the leadership role and be more assertive on the offensive end – although it seems he still goes through long stretches without seeing the ball. Bambale is a force...

Maryland Terps Basketball: Intensity / Rebounding / Foul Shooting = Huge Win

Maryland: 89 / North Carolina: 87 Gary Williams must have posted my last Terps blog as bulletin board material to motivate his troops. Because since that disappointing effort against Virginia, the Terps have won 5 in a row to cement their position for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. I am delighted to eat crow and offer my apologies to the Terps for questioning their interior toughness...

Maryland Terps Basketball: No Intensity / No Rebounding / No Foul Shooting / No Win

On Perdue’s only drive that could have generated some hope, the Terps were able to strip the ball from Dorien Bryant after a 31 yard reception. The game...

Maryland Terps Basketball: The Streakiness of Mike Jones

In a couple recent games, three point specialist Mike Jones has tickled the twine with some torrid shooting. But as his career winds down at Garyland he has yet to demonstrate the consistency and reliability that the Terps (12-2) so desperately need. In fact his disappearance against Notre Dame (0-5 from the field) and lackluster performance in the ACC opener vs. Boston College (3-9) contributed...

Terps Tank Early — Get Run Over by Mountaineers

Maryland: 24 / West Virginia: 45 The game was over before Terp QB Sam Hollander got to take a snap from center. The opening play for West Virginia was an emotional killer. It appeared that the running back had fumbled just before his knee hit the turf. Two different refs called it two different ways as the Terps defense ran off the field celebrating. But after an officials conference, WV...
