There was an empty feeling in the pit of my stomach tonight as “the recruiter” Jeff Walz frustrated his 2 prized pupils, Kristi and Marissa. Marissa Coleman was double teamed every time she made a move and Kristi had to resort to shooting NBA 3’s in order to get her shot off. The other pieces of the Terp puzzle played adequately but not well enough to to jolt the Terps into the Final Four. Louisville. realizing that the Terps were vastly superior in talent did what Michigan State did to the Louisville men—slow the game down and use most of the time clock before shooting.Like the Louisville men, Maryland’s zone fell into the hands of the Cardinals. How ironic. Finally when the Lady Terps went to a man to man the Terps sort of got back into the game. But tonight belonged to Louisville, thus ending the terrific careers of Kristi and Marissa. I must applaud the tremendous year the Lady Terps had-ACC Regular and Tournament Champions, another trip to the Elite Eight of the big dance and a final record of 31-5. Now we will see if jeff can figure out UConn after his losses of 28 points and 39 points to the Huskies this year. Enjoy cutting down the nets tonight , Cardinal fans, disappointment awaits.
