Make it 3 super wins in a row and yes the Terps seem to have turned the corner on the season. What does this game setup? A monster game against the Blue Devils who were shellacked by Steve Lavin’s Seton Hall team today in New York. Jordan Williams was back to his dbl dbl form as he finished with 21 points and 15 rebounds. Sean Mosley had his best game of the year finishing with 16 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.
A significant part of the victory tonight was the ability to make free throws down the wire as the Terps were 24-32 for 75%. Terrell Stoglin finished with 13 points including 7-7 from the foul line. Maryland seemingly had the game wrapped up with a 13 point lead in the 2nd half when pressure defense from Tech led to 9 straight points cutting the deficit to 4 with 3 minutes left.
Tech certainly missed Brian Oliver who was out with the flu. Georgia Tech lost for the first time at home. Paul Hewitt commented after the game about Maryland’s inside game.
