If you listened to Terp Talk last night my sentiment was “Overreaction” to the blowout loss at FSU. It happens on the road sometimes.

   Turgeon Post Game

Without question this was a different Maryland team then we have watched all year. Is it just the return of Seth Allen? I believe it is more. Basketball maturation of Shaq, much improved shooting from Nick Faust and what I have called an effective intensity across the team.  The Terps are now 2-0 in conference in a quest for what I believe is a goal of 11 wins, a task that I now believe might just be attainable.

What a great game for Nick Faust today.—16 points on 6-8 shooting including 4-6 treys. Nick has been stellar the past 3 games. Turgeon commented: “He got his release up higher, that’s number one. That happened right before Christmas. Then just getting away, and having one more scorer playing takes a lot of pressure off Nick. When you look at percentages, who are you going to let shoot. You’re going to let Nick shoot, but he’s knocking them down right now. I’m happy for him and really defended. He’s just under control. He’s so much better with the ball and not forcing things. He’s playing like a veteran guard should.”

Shaq and Mitchell combined for 13 points and 13 rebounds and the Terps certainly had a low post presence today.

12.545 were in attendance today.

Georgia Tech certainly missed its best player , Robert Carter as the trailed by double digits most of the 2nd half.

Next up for Maryland –Pitt on Monday night on the road. Other ACC scores today:

Notre Dame 79  #7 Duke 77—–Pupil (Mike Brey) beats teacher

UVA 62   FSU 50

#2 Syracuse 49  Miami 44  

Clemson 62 BC 60

Pitt NC State  62
