Tonight needs to be that game that begins to turn the season around for Maryland. it will not be an easy task as the opponent always gives Maryland fits. Senior Malcolm Dulaney, fron Baltimore leads the Hokies in most categories and is certainly the heart of the team. Forward Jeff Allen has been a thorn in the side of the Terps for years. Hopefully Jordan Williams and the rest of his mates overcome the free throw problem that has plagued the Terrapins. Look for Sean Mosley to draw the assignment of guarding Dulaney. Look for lots of threes to be fired up from the Hokies. gametime is 9PM at the Comcast Center.
It’s unbelievable that the Hokies were complaining about Maryland fan behavior before the game tonight. The following is from Jeff Barker’s Tracking the Terps in the Sun:
Several media outlets reported comments made by Virginia Tech senior Malcolm Delaney that Maryland “might have the worst fans ever.”Virginia Tech coach Seth Greenberg was quoted in the Richmond Times-Dispatch today talking about Allen and the atmosphere at Comcast.”I don’t have to talk to him about it,” Greenberg said in the Richmond paper. “You talk about nasty environments, buying a ticket doesn’t give you a right to be abusive. And you would hope that, quite honestly, the people at Maryland would do their job. Plain and simple. They need to do their job. Just because you buy a ticket to a game doesn’t give you a right to be abusive.”
Seth, I remember a few years back when your team defeated the Terps and as you walked out past the Maryland bench, you turned to the parents section, and leaped in the air with both arms in the air.
The Terrapin released all tickets for the remaining ACC games today (except Duke) Go to umterps.com for more info.
