Back To The Real World of Terrapin Basketball—Terps 83 Lafayette74

I am tired of talking about conferences, debt and money. But before I start on the what should be a walkover vs Lafayette, let me note I was at the Wizards game last night. Washington has to be a great Bball town as there was a solid 11000 there to watch the 0-8 Wizards.

The point I am making was guess who was starting for the Pacers—-none other then Born Ready, Lance Stephenson. He played OK, but it brought back memories.

At the 16 minute mark with the Terps up 9-5, Turgeon replaced the entire squad. Seth Allen just hit a sweet jumper, which was folloed by a Charles Mitchell layup–Terps up 13-10. Mitchell again. Mitchell rebound. Mitchell great inside pass to Shaq. 17-12 Terps

11 minutes left —starters back in. So much for the first team—22-20 Terps at the 8 minute mark. Seth, Nick, Alex, Mitchell, and Dez. Set Allen for 3–Turge has to be thinking about starting him pretty soon. Layman in for Nick.

at 29-28 Mitchell scores inside again. 31-28 Terps – A late rush gives Maryland a 40-30 Lead at Half

Post game Turgeon remarked that the Terps never made a jumper all night  yet scored 83, going 29-56 from the field.  In 20 minutes James Padgett finished with 14 points on 6-7 shooting. James has been steady all year and will play a much more integral role in this team then most people thought.

Turgeon seems to relying much more on Nick faust as the year goes on. Nick logged in 31 minutes tonight and finished with 13 points and 8 rebounds.

Charles Mitchell continued his strong play with 12 points and 5 bounds. Layman didn’t score and Seth Allen was much quieter tonight though so far he has exhibited the best jump shot on the tea.

Elsewhere in the NCAA:

Rutgers joined the Big Ten bringing the New York market in. Piscataway is great campus and a great place to watch football. The last time I was there the Terps crushed Rutgers and shut down a running back named Ray Rice.

Matisyahu Packs Them in at Rams Head in Baltimore

I have heard a lot about 31 year old Matthew Paul Miller better known as Matisyahu,  but I wanted to see him for myself. Though I didn’t know any of his music, I thoroughly enjoyed his set at the Power Plant last night.
