Despite what the Dookies say this has turned into the game the nation watches in the ACC. Carolina is not the Carolina of even a few years back and when you look for what it takes to battle with Duke, Gary Williams might not have the same talent but he always has the answers.That’s why tomorrow night at 9, Steve Lavin, Tom Izzo, Bobby Knight, Dookie V, every great coach in the land will be tuned in to ESPN. At the game tomorrow night, we’ll see Wilbon, Kornheiser, Mike Wise, Steve Bishotti, probably Coach Harbaugh, Bruce Laird, maybe Cal Ripken. Why– because this game is the essence of a rivalry. Coach K and Gary respect each other but that’s where it ends. I have seen the Duke players after a win and a loss and believe me they don’t take this game lightly. I laugh when I read that Duke’s loss to the Johnnies will have them fired up for this game. Duke lost to St John’s because they were looking ahead to Maryland.
I have been to Cameron and seen the hatred in the eyes of the students for Greivis. I have seen the way the Dookies taunt the Maryland players, insult Coach Williams, and take it real personal. The same holds true at Comcast. This is a game that always matters. I remember seeing PeShon Howard at the game last year right after he verballed and he was so excited . This year Sterling Gibbs, Nick Faust , and hopefully Desmond Hubert will be there. Duke is number 5 in the nation and Maryland needs a big win. Let’s get it on!!!!!!
In the first game at Cameron , Maryland was up 38-32 in the 2nd half, basically on overmatching Duke in defensive intensity. Cliff Tucker was superb that night and will probably need to repeat his performance for Maryland to win. That night Stoglin and Bowie were a combined 1-15 from the field. Stoglin learned a lot that day and watch how aggressive PeShon and Terrell will be tomorrow night. Each game someone has been stepping up besides Jordan and that’s why the Terps are on a 3 game roll. Seth Curry and Tyler Thornton led Duke to victory in game 1 but that won’y happen tonight. It’s been Singler and Nolan Smith—-let’s see how Gary attacks it . I CAN”T WAIT
