Farewell to the ACC

Recommended Posts

I know there's still the ACC tournament, but this is the last ever ACC home game. The Terps trail 35-34 at the half.

OT. Frustrating thing was the third and second to last possessions. Didn't get a good shot off on either one of those possessions and those could have really put some distance between us and UVA.

The Terps came back strong in OT to pull out the win. This win makes the Terps 9-9 in conference. Is that enough for an NIT bid?

And Terps win. Everyone played their role well in this game. The most exciting thing for me is that Shaq Cleare had another solid outing. All he needs to do to be useful going forward is get a few rebounds, stand his ground defensively, post up a few times, hit foul shots at a 60%ish clip, and set some screens. He has done that the past two games and has been a very big asset. This is his best two game stretch of the season and if he keeps it up or actually builds on it he could be a part of the future. Before these last two games I was convinced it was best for him and the team that he transfer.

This is part of the reason I really hope the Terps get an NIT invite. I feel this team can be good next year and extra basketball this year can only help.

And hopefully the fact that Allen missed significant time and we have been significantly better since his return to full strength will be considered by the NIT committee. Can't believe I am begging for a NIT berth, but I agree they need more reps together and they are continually improving.

I thought the same thing, murph. Should I be posting that I hope the Terps get an NIT bid. But, I feel like an NIT appearance can be very beneficial for this team. Years past an NIT bid just meant the team had a bad season.

I'm not going to lie: as a lifelong Maryland resident, a Duke alum and avid fan of ACC basketball, I am really pissed off at Maryland for leaving the ACC. Since it was their choice to go, I'm glad they lost in their first ACC tournament game of 2014 in heartbreaking fashion.

I'm not going to lie either: as someone who has lived the large majority of my life in the state of MD, and as an alumni of a school in the MD State University system, I am kinda pissed off at Maryland for leaving the ACC. And I'll be glad if Clemson beats Duke tonight in heartbreaking fashion. :)

    • These have become so important for me. While we are not where we should be, we are definitely seeing some success in the lower levels and that is exciting.
    • Mountcastle hit his 22nd home run today, and more importantly (apparently), walked for the third time in his last 4 games. .312/.342/.521.
    • I was speaking in a general sense.  
    • He’s not on the 40.   He’ll need to be in it in December.  
    • For Immediate Release: August 18, 2019   PITCHING STAFF TOSSES EIGHT SCORELESS IN WIN KEYS SCORE FIVE UNANSWERED TO TAKE SERIES FINALE FREDERICK, MD – After a rocky first inning, the Frederick Keys (20-33, 49-73) pitching staff kept the Fayetteville Woodpeckers (31-25, 62-63) off the scoreboard, earning a 5-3 victory on Sunday afternoon at Nymeo Field. Cole Billingsley broke a 3-3 tie with a bases loaded double that brought home a pair of runs in the sixth inning. Scott Burke (2-2) and Zach Matson (S, 1) then locked down the final four innings as the Keys gave up just one hit after the first inning. Tied 3-3 in the sixth, Will Robertson hit a single to lead off the inning and Jean Carrillo hit a double off the left-field wall a batter later. Parker Mushinski then allowed a walk which drew controversy from the Fayetteville dugout, as Woodpecker’s hitting coach Jason Kanzler was ejected arguing balls and strikes. Billingsley then came to the plate and grounded a ball down the first base line, bringing a pair of runs home to give the Keys a 5-3 lead. Burke retired the first seven he faced out of the bullpen but lost control in the eighth inning. He walked three straight Woodpeckers as Matson was called upon to put out the fire. With the bases loaded and one-out, Matson forced a groundball to third that caught the lead runner at the plate and then struck out the final batter to end the inning. Burke did not allow a hit nor a run over 2.1 innings. Matson polished off the final 1.2 frames and gave up one hit. The first inning resembled yesterday’s seven run opening frame for Fayetteville, as Cameron Bishop struggled to command the ball. He allowed a base hit and walked two batters to load the bases for Miguelangel Sierra, who cleared the bases with a double to give the Woodpeckers a 3-0 lead. Bishop rebounded nicely after that. He walked three batter but did not allow a hit or a run over the next four innings while he finished with five strikeouts. The Keys offense went to work in the third inning. After Mushinski retired the first two batters of the inning, he put two men for Robert Neustrom, who cracked a double to the right-centerfield gap that scored both runners. An inning later, the Keys were able to tie the game 3-3. Robbie Thorburn’s double put runners at second and third and Mushinski then walked a batter to load the bases. Clare then hit a sharp groundball to third baseman David Hensley, who couldn’t handle it cleanly, allowing the tying run to cross. The Keys have an off-day on Monday before opening up a three-game homestand against Potomac on Tuesday, August 20. RHP Blaine Knigjht (1-9, 5.73) takes the mound for Frederick against LHP Nick Raquet (10-8, 4.13) for Potomac. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00pm with pregame coverage starting at 6:45pm on the Tune In app and frederickkeys.com. The Frederick Keys are the Advanced-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and play their home games at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium. Following the 2018 season, the Keys were named the winner of the Carolina League’s Complete Franchise Award. This goes to a team in the league which demonstrates franchise stability and significant contributions to its community and the league. In 2019, the team will host the Carolina League All-Star Classic presented by Visit Frederick.

    • I realize Im a "come lately" on this post, and I also realize a teeny weenie sample size is really nothing to get too excited about...but man, that kid has a good arm. I spoke to Palmer off the air and he told me EVEN if the gun was jacked up, he was easily throwing 98  with some movement. And he showed poise and smarts. Palmer's quote"really early, but I was impressed. That was an easy windup and he surprised me with that kind of velocity. Kid has a great arm."...Please...baseball Gods...Let SOMETHING BE GOOD going forward this year!
