Negativism has captured Terrapin nation. I for one do not believe the season is over. Far from it.The improvement in this team has been gradual, very gradual. But we are getting better.It’s such a fine line between 3-5 and 5-3. Do you really think Miami is a power. Did Wake almost beat Duke yesterday? The power in basketball rests not in the ACC but in our soon to be new conference.
The Terps next 3 games are Wake–the Hokies on the road and UVA at home next Sunday. We will be clear favorites in the 2 home games and potential victors in the Blacksburg game. Now if you disagree in what I say, you just haven’t been watching the ACC. Let’s take the games one by one and not give up on anyone because of a bad play on the road. There was criticism of Dez Wells for his mistake of leaving Michael Snaer alone. Look he thought there was a loose ball–a mistake in judgment. Alex had a bad game Wednesday and the Terps had the depth to overcome it. And anyone who doesn’t think PeShon was missed down the wire is clueless.
Certain tendencies have to be overcome but this I know:
Layman is playing better.
Turge has set up a few plays for Logan and he is now a presence.
Dez Wells was superb against FSU. Cut down his turnovers and he was fantastic. If you don’t think that was the case you must have not watched the game.
Seth was in a funk–he is a Freshman–Can you understand that.
Mitchell and Shaq improve every game–can’t you see it.
Talk to me next Sunday when the Terps could be 6-5.
