Some observations of a Big TIme Game in Downtown DC:
Sean Mosley was beyond incredible tonight, unleashing an outside shooting performance for the Terps that rivals any in memory. sean was 11-14 from the field with 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block and 2 steals. Mr Baltimore is the real deal!!!!
Jordan Williams scored 19 points and had 12 rebounds against one of the best teams in College basketball. He is rapidly learning the college game. Remember this was only his 8th game and his first game on a huge stage!!!!
Gary and Jay Wright inferred after the game that Maryland actually went to a zone to slow down the 3 point barrage. Scottie Reynolds admitted the Wildcats were somewhat confused by the zone. The more the Terps play the 1-2-2 the better they get at it.
The return of Dino Gregory Saturday night will take a ton of pressure off of both Landon and Jordan. I am curious to see if Gary eventually has a starting lineup of Jordan, Landon, Dino—up front with Mosley and Greivis in the backcourt and using Eric as the 6th man in a 3 guard rotation.
Tonight Greivis battled foul trouble and long periods on the bench probably contributed to an off shooting night. He still finished with 12 points and 7 assists most of which were in crunch time.
This game had all the feelings of a NCAA tourney game. Scottie Reynolds wwas the night’s MVP although if I had a vote it would have gone to Mosley.
