Terrapin Hoops Await Youngstown State Tonight at 8PM at Comcast
The Youngstown State Penquins journey into Comcast Center tonight as the Terps seek to go 2-0 and earn Gary Williams his 399th Terrapin victory. I wonder if the Penquin makes his appearance tonight. Some milestones on the line tonight:
Maryland has hit at least one 3-pointer in 321 consecutive games.
The Terps have won 54 of 58 non-conference games since moving into Comcast Center.
Maryland has won at least 19 games in 12 straight seasons.
The Terps have made 15 consecutive postseason appearances.
Maryland’s last losing season came in 1992-93, the last season of devastating NCAA sanctions levied against previous staffs at Maryland… Each school in the ACC has had a losing season since the Terps fell below .500 some 15 seasons ago… In fact, 9 of the 11 ACC opponents have suffered through a losing season since the Terps won the NCAA title in 2002… Duke and UNC are the exceptions.
Over the last four seasons, Maryland has won 82 games, an average of 20.5 per season… That matches the number of wins that Gary Williams directed during the first four seasons (1994-97) of Maryland’s run of 11 straight titles.
I am anxious to see if Sean Mosley and Jin Soo KIm have gotten past first game jitters. Also, can Cliff Tucker repeat his stellar performance from Friday night?
