Before everyone panics, you are never as bad as you look when you are losing. I do believe that was the case tonight. Remember Maryland is not going to win every game on the road. Dodd was due to have an off game as he had been playing out of his mind recently. The entire team had an off night yet the Terps only lost by 7. The Terps are 14-2 and will be fine.If you listened to Terp Talk tonight, you would have heard me express my fears about this game. The second it was announced that Rayvonte Rice, clearly the best player on Illinois was out, I knew the Terps were in trouble. The first game after such an injury teams always seem to rise to the occasion. Malcolm Hill has a super game game tonight (28 points on 9-18 shooting) but it was the steady play of PG Jay...

In a game that they led from start to finish the Terps jumped out to a quick 4 to 0 lead at the opening tip off, upped that to 37 to 19 at the half, started the second half like the first and led by 42 to 19 one minute in, saw Oakland cut it to seven 63 to 56 with 4 minutes left and then went on a 9 to 0 run to win by 72 to 56.The Terps are now at 12 and 1 heading into the Big Ten schedule and should possibly move up another notch or so in the rankings.
Dez Wells back after missing seven games due to a wrist injury showed just how important he will be down the stretch as when the game got close he scored on a variety of shots to help the Terps pull away at the end. Dez, scoreless in the first half, played 22 minutes, scored 10 points on 5 for 9 shooting and had 4 assists. Coach Turgeo... Read More »
Please don't wake me because I must be dreaming. First the Terps go to the Big House and take down Michigan. And now back to back wins over ASU and #13 Iowa State. Really? Maybe the tide has finally turned for the Terps.There is not much to say other then the team looked great. Certainly Dodd and Cekovsky played better then they have all year. Jared Nickens came off the banch to score 15 points on 60-10 shooting including 3 treys.Jake is playing much more physical and garnered 6 rebounds and 2 assists.Melo was steady again scoring 11, adding 2 assists and committing just 2 turnovers in 33 minutes.Turgeon has to be doing cartwheels on his plane ride home. That's 5-0 for the Terps.
