Terps Advance To Round of 32 Dominating Houston 89-77 —Predictions for the Weekend

March Madness Terp Talk

As last night’s game developed into a track meet, I was totally confident that the Terps would eventually win easily. There was no way an undermanned Houston team with only 2 scorers could run with Maryland. Some comments on the game at 1:33 AM.

Jordan Williams was outstanding scoring 21 points with 17 rebounds in a break out game.  Greivis said after the game that the game plan was to get the ball in deep to Jordan and I though his floor game was superb. Besides his 16 points, the ACC POY had 7 rebounds with 6assists, committing only 1 turnover.

Landon is back. He finished with 19 points and netted his jumper several times.

Aubrey Coleman scored 26 for the Cougars but definitely tired as the game went on. His first step to the bucket gave Maryland fits early and he certainly is a tremendous talent.

“Steady” Eric Hayes was 4-7 from the field with 11 points and 6 assists. Once again Adrian provided excellent minutes off the bench scoring 9 including 2 of his patented line drive 3s.

Gary seemed rather upset in the post game press conference when he heard that Maryland was scheduled to play Michigan State in the early game at 11:45 PST. Basically it’s ridiculous and I will have more to say on PressBox Live Saturday morning on ESPN 1300.

Maryland won the game like a 4 seed should clearly in control in the 2nd half. Only a few desperate 3s by Houston at the end of the first half kept this game somewhat in check.

The ACC completed the first round 4-2 with Duke, Georgia Tech, Wake, and the Terps advancing.

My predictions for the weekend:

Midwest: Kansas, Tenn,  Georgia Tech

West: Syracuse,Butler,Pitt, Kansas State

East: Kentucky, Cornell, New Mexico, West Va

South:    Duke, Texas A&m, Baylor, St Mary’s

In a superstitious mode I skipped the Md MSU game.

    willimas, hayes and milbourne played really well. vasquez played o.k. couple of nice passes. his shooting was way off. the benck, particularly tucker and bowie did well despite the back back turnovers by tucker. one pass reminded me of fred brown of georgetown.

    You can see why Gary loves this team. They are so poised and you just knew that they would respond after that first half buzzer beater. You can’t underestimate the importance of senior leadership.
