The University of Maryland were one of the 9 universities in the country to receive an at large bid to the NCAAs last night. I was pretty sure the Terps would get the bid when Notre Dame easily defeated Ohio State. “When you have one of the best schedules in the country — and we had two wins against the top six teams — and you start looking around at those you’re comparing yourself to, we had a very good chance of getting in,” said coach Dave Cottle, whose Terps squad has not missed an NCAA tournament since 2002, Cottle’s first season at Maryland. “I just felt like when you looked at the full body of work, our top-10 games were pretty good..” We can be assured of a quick recovery of Will Yeatman since he transferred out of Notre Dame last year. Loyola’s failure to beat Hopkins last Saturrday, and Terrpin wins over Duke and Carolina ld to the Terps bid.
