Observations of a Great Maryland Victory over Wisconsin


6 turnovers including 0 by Dez

The play of Michal Cekovsky–aggressive—6 rebounds 1 block

Dez –his best game ever –26 points–7-14 from the field, 7-7 Free throws, 4 assists, and 0 turnovers

Melo–closed the 1st half and game with key buckets

Smotrycz–o points but 5 rebounds and 2 steals –great defense om Kaminsky

I thought the shot selection of Wisconsin was horrible in the 1st half 91-11 on treys)

Bo Ryan forgot to congratulate Maryland–disappointing

Kaminsky and Dekker were fabulous in defeat for Wisconsin

Rebounds were 31-31—a big win for Maryland

Terps are 11-4 in undisputed possession of 2 nd place in the Big Ten

Maryland just clearly outplayed Wisconsin tonight. They were tougher, better prepared, and they wanted it more. But Wisconsin is till the #5 team in the country. 

Only 11 points by Maryland’s 7 other players

Michigan is up next on Saturday at Noon

Terps Bounce Back with 11-7 Victory in Lacrosse–Rambo has 3G and...

My take—Entirely different team showed up today at Byrd. The Terps actually scored 8 goals in the first 10 minutes but 4 of them were called back due to crease violations and interference. Rambo was special day scoring 3 and assisting on 2. Dylan Maltz also chimed in with 4 points. Jon Garino was 14-8 at the X. Terps won groundballs 36-22 but still had 22 turnovers.

Sophomores Matt Rambo and Dylan Maltz combined for five goals and four assists to lead the No. 10 Maryland men’s lacrosse team to an 11-7 victory over No. 11 Penn Tuesday evening at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium.

Leading by just one goal at halftime, 5-4, the Terrapin offense exploded in the third quarter for four unanswered goals, including three in a 2:07 span.

Maryland’s offense dominated the opening portion of the third quarter as Carlson, Rambo, Henry West and Maltz scored a string of goals to open a 9-4 lead. Rambo assisted on two of the goals, matching his career-high of two assists for the first time since achieving the feat against Mount St. Mary’s on Feb. 8, 2014.

Jon Garino, Jr., had an excellent day at the faceoff X, winning 14-of-22 faceoffs.

The Terps return to action Saturday, Feb. 28, as they meets Drexel at noon for the first time in program history at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium.


- Matt Rambo tied his career-high with two assists

- Maryland remained unbeaten all-time against Penn, 11-0

- The Terps reached 10 goals for the first time in 2015, and have won 12 straight games when scoring at least 10 goals

- Maryland improved to 38-3 all-time in the month of February, and 12-1 under Tillman

- The Terps improved to 83-6-1 all-time in home-openers, including six consecutive wins

My Prediction For Tonight’s Crucial Game vs Wisconsin

Without a question this is the biggest game the Terps have played since Senior night for Greivis. Lots to prove to the nation and the NCAA Committee.

A quick look at the #5 Badgers:

Wisconsin brings a 10-game winning streak to XFINITY Center Tuesday after defeating Minnesota, 63-53, its last time out on Saturday. The Badgers’ two losses have come to Duke (12/3) and Rutgers (1/11).

Frank Kaminsky leads Wisconsin with 17.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. Sam Dekker is averaging 13.1 points and 5.1 boards per game while Nigel Hayes is the third Badger scoring in double-figures with 12.1 points per outing.

Defensively, Wisconsin is surrendering a league-best 55.4 points per game and leads the Big Ten in scoring margin (+16.9).

The Terps trail in the all-time series, 5-2, but defeated Wisconsin 87-57 in the 2002 NCAA Tournament en route to the program’s first national championship

What must happen for the Terps to win tonight:

Must get a minimum of 20 points from the non top 3.

Fast start is mandatory. With Kaminsky, a big comeback might be nearly impossible.

Turnovers below 10 for Maryland

Kaminsky must be attacked and forced to play at a faster pace. There are 20 fouls to give between Graham, Dodd, Chhekko, and Smotrycz.

Terps are 7-0 at home. Prediction Maryland 69 Wisconsin 68

Terps Play Penn at 5PM Today at Capitol One Field

Things to watch today:

Can Charlie Raffa right the face off ship. In the first 2 games the All American is 9-14 on draws

Can the offense get to double digits in goals?

Will Coach Tillman shake up the midfield lines looking for the right combo?

The Terps dropped to #10 in the weekly inside lacrosse poll

#5 Terps Have a 65-34 Laugher Over Penn State —Now 16-0 in Confe...

From start to finish, it was a memorable night for No. 5 Maryland.

The Terrapins scored the first 10 points against Penn State and never trailed in a 65-34 rout Monday.

Afterward, the team was presented a sparkling trophy for winning the Big Ten regular-season title.

It doesn’t get much better than that.

“I’m really, really proud of this group,” coach Brenda Frese said. “Going into this season there were a lot of unknowns — young team, new conference. To be able to come out and play the way they have in these first 16 games is not easy.”

Propelled by 9 Run 6th, Terrapin Nine Bounces Back to Defeat Arkansas ...

The Maryland baseball team exploded for nine runs in the sixth inning and defeated Arkansas, 13-6, in the final game of the South Alabama Tournament at Stanky Field Sunday afternoon.

The Terps fell behind 6-1 after five innings, but unleashed the bats in the sixth, plating nine runs on seven hits. Freshman Kevin Smith was spectacular throughout, notching a career-high three hits. The newcomer also made a number of fantastic defensive plays.

“It’s the second day in a row our guys have worked to come from behind which is something we take pride in,” head coach John Szefc said. “As long as we keep making it hard for opposing staffs to get us out 27 times, I feel pretty good about it. I don’t feel bad about coming out of here 2-1.”

Whittle, Cummings and McPartland’s Hat Tricks Take #1 Terps to 1...

NOTE—The Mcdonogh Duo of Taylor Cummings and Freshman Megan Whittle combined for 6 goals today in this premier matchup in Women’s Lacrosse.

Led by a trio of hat tricks, the No. 1 Maryland women’s lacrosse team relied on balanced play as the Terps defeated No. 2 North Carolina, 13-11, Sunday afternoon at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex. The Terrapins moved to 11-0 all-time in College Park against the Tar Heels.

Maryland (2-0) and North Carolina (3-1) faced off for the first time as nonconference rivals. The teams were scheduled to play Saturday afternoon before weather delayed the contest until Sunday.

Senior Kelly McPartland, junior Taylor Cummings and freshman Megan Whittle each scored three goals to pace the Terps. Sophomore Zoe Stukenberg added two goals, while seniors Brooke Griffin and Erin Collins each added one.
