GAME THREAD: Maryland vs. North Carolina

Recommended Posts

o

For Maryland, this would be a huge road win against 6th-ranked North Carolina, and their potential 17th win of the season in an effort to make a late run at an NCAA birth. If they don't win the ACC tournament, they would probably need a win tonight, another win against Virginia at home on Sunday, and 2 more wins in the ACC tourney to get into the semi-finals which would give them a realistic chance.

For the Tar Heels, it's their last regular season game before the season finale against Duke on Saturday.

MARYLANDNNNNNNOOOOOo (16-12)

vs.

NORTH CAROLINA (25-4, # 6)

As much as I would love to see the Terps in the tourney, the scenario you outlined is pretty unrealistic.

That being said, I'm not disappointed with the Terps' season. Finishing this season .500 or better is pretty good. I think they are making some headway in recruiting as well and will be a team to be reckoned in the 2013-14 season.

Oh, I know it is ...... and I'm a Tar Heels fan. :o But since this a Maryland/Orioles board, I figured that I would lay out the scenario for the Terrapins to make the tournament for the home town fans, even if is currently far-fetched. :)

Good luck, Terps friends.

You guys have had a nice year, definitely exceeded expectations. Bright future ahead.

Any chance Terps get revenge on Henson with some hard fouls tonight?

The timing wasn't nearly as inappropriate at Henson's dunk, but Faust seems to be enjoying the crowd's reaction after throwing one down.

The call a foul every time Zeller takes a shot. Just under 14 minutes to play and he's had 17 free throw attempts. Absolutely terrible referee work there.

That's one way to make sure that Roy Williams' "bench decorum" is in line, I guess. Veyr lop-sided, so far. But part of that is a mismatch in talent. Part of that is, well, expected.

I can't watch the game, but have Weijs, Pankey and Len all really fouled out of the game with over 5 minutes to go? That is crazy.

EDIT - they list Weijs with 4 now, so I guess not.

Looks like another strong game from Pankey. 0 points, 0 rebounds, 5 fouls.

That's what the officials decided would happen. UNC is so much better than MD, they don't need protection from the officials.

    • Can't say I've been enjoying the commentary. Garceau has the same mispronunciations and inaccuracies as Thorne but without any of the energy and excitement. Ben McDonald just goes on about productive at-bats and bunting like it's 1990. Palmer had a little bit of that too, but he seems to have kept up with the advances in the game more, despite being 20 years older. The one positive is that McDonald identifies the pitches correctly and is pretty good at describing a pitcher's repertoire.
    • Horn blasts arent phony.  There's a group of 10 or 12 real fans who go to a gate of the stadium where they can see a tiny sliver of the field through bars and they sit in lawn chairs and stand on ladders and follow the game and blow horns and do some chants.  They wear masks and say they social distance.  The Phillies even turned on TVs over concession stands in their view so they can watch the game. They call themselves the Phandemic Crew or something like that. Aaron Boone and the Yankees actually complained about them saying the horn blasts were timed with pitches just like fans who try to disturb golfers by making noise just as they swing. Google Phandemic, you'll find articles about the m.
    • I like it.     Thought it was really a fun vibe in Philly.    I like their phony crowd noise too, complete with random horn blasts.    Overall, I think the sound engineers are getting better at what they’re doing with experience.   
    • Having watched or heard bits of several games on both TV and radio, I’m very pleased with this year’s broadcast crews, including the folks on the postgame shows. Scott Garceau and Ben McDonald have been very solid on TV — especially McDonald, who’s really good at passing along his knowledge and observations.    Bordick is much better on the postgame than on the broadcasts, and a big upgrade over Dempsey IMO.    Whoever he’s been paired with has been solid.     On radio, I’ve really liked what Geoff Arnold brings to the table, and Melanie Newman has been solid as well.    Overall, there’s a lot to like here.    
    • I think teams are going to be really reluctant to take on money just because of the uncertainty of the world right now. There's a totally possible chance the stadiums are empty or at a reduced capacity next year too.
    • Yep, Eddie had a walkoff steal of home in 1979: https://www.baseball-almanac.com/feats/Game_Ending_Steals_of_Home.shtml
