Terps Take it To UVA But Eventually Fall to the Hoos 76-71

Never happy about losing but a sellout crowd of 17,950 had to see a lot of talent and fight in this squad.

First of all Virginia is a fantastic team–coached brilliantly by Tony Bennett.

Stat of the game—Turnovers . Terps 14 .  UVA 2.  That’s correct 2

Bruno–6-8 with 11 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks. The 39 NBA scouts had to be drooling.

Cowan had trouble getting off his shot but rallied late in the game to finish with 15 pts, 4 TOs and 4 assists.

Aaron Wiggins finished with 13 points including 3 treys.

The Terps trailed 48-31 and were able to close the gap to as little as 4.

The Terps shot 54% and scored 11 points more then any team has scored this year against the CAVS

Highlight tonight–As the UVA fans were chanting UVA . UVA in the final seconds, the Student body responded with UMBC UMBC.

ELSEWHERE

The ACC Big Ten challenge finished at 7-7.

Coach K wants Duke fans to lower expectations for the Devils. Really? Anything less then a final four appearance for squad including 3 of the top non NBA players in the country, will be viewed as extremely disappointing. Have you seen Zion Williamson play? There is not another player in college even close to his ability. 

Kyle Korver was traded to Utah.

The real season starts for Maryland,  Saturday night vs Penn State at Xfinity.

No practice today for Flacco–Lamar is probably 99-1 to start on Sunday. (NOTE drop that to 65% as Joe is practicing on Thursday)
