Maryland vs. Marquette

Recommended Posts

I saw there was a Temple game thread, which is part of the Orlando Invitational, but figured this one might deserve its own.  Championship game.  Maryland has a chance to earn their biggest win of the year thus far.  I think Marquette is a solid squad.  The key, of course, is stopping Markus Howard. 

I haven't had a chance to watch a full Terps game this year (saw the majority of the Rhode Island game), so looking forward to it.

I woke up late ugh, so much for watching an entire game haha. I like this score though! 

Wiggins! That's the aggressiveness I like to see! Strong drive and dunk! Morsell hustling as usual, he's our best energy guy.

Starting their best five players for the first time this season, seemed to make a big difference. 

This is the first game I've watched where we've looked like a legit top five team from start to finish.  You've seen a lot of playing around with the rotations early in the season and minutes spread around.  As we get into conference play I think you'll see a rotation similar to what we saw today.  

The Mitchell twins have been disappointing.  Scott looks like he is going to be the freshman on the roster who gives us the biggest impact.

Amazing game today.  They were really up for the game from the start.   Great defense vs Markus.   Smothered him.   Stix got in some foul trouble but Mitchel did a good job subbing for him.  Morsell, Cowan,  Wiggins, Ayala  all were on their game.  Much better than the Temple game.

Hard to know how they will do vs ranked team but they were fun to watch today.

Thanks for he comments, it's good to read. I recorded the game then watched the Ravens game. went into my DVR and for some reason it did not record! Uggghhh!

Looked at the boxscore and it certainly looked like a dominant game for them from start to finish which is good. Hopefully they've found the right rotation. Seems like Stix and Cowan have been playing better, which are musts for this team to reach their potential.

BTW, the Mitchell twins have zero offensive games. They've been very disappointing int he games I've seen.

Against Harvard they had their patented slow starts but not in this contest.  Good to see Terps start strong and lead throughout.

Very disappointing, but bigs tend to take a little longer to adapt to the physicality of the college game.

My pessimism about them is somewhat mitigated by the pleasant surprise that Donta Scott has been.

We will definitely need a lot more from them once we get into the Big Ten schedule.

    • That's.... that's exactly what I'm saying. How are you not hearing yourself? He lost the job because he couldn't hit - like AT ALL - and the mounting pressure from all that not hitting was getting to be a strain on him and the organization. So they sent him down to work on that. Meanwhile, Elias doesn't want to - like you said yourself - go to McKenna or Hays. So they just throw whoever out there. If they weren't worried about Mullins' development they would have just kept him, but you can't keep a guy in the bigs with a broken swing. Wilkerson isn't any better defensively out there, that's obvious to see. But he could hit at least a LITTLE. And let's not forget Santander and Stewart got CF looks as well. 
    • I don't love LeBlanc, but at least it will probably prevent a Cashner reunion. 
    • Notice they haven't punished the Red Sox yet? I'm betting MLB and the Red Sox got together and canned Cora so they could try and do the slow fade on the Red Sox getting caught cheating again.
    • Certainly not by me, but I think it will probably be old news to the casual fans in a few years. The only think they could have done to make it stick was have them vacate the title, as impractical as that may have been. 
    • Fans were not super keen on Christian Walker, but he's a starter in Arizona now. I think Cedric Mullins has shown enough potential (a year removed from .289/.346/.472 in AAA and 21 SB at 23yo) to get the benefit of the doubt that he had a down year instead of being branded as hopeless. 
    • I think it was worse because he lost it to Wilkerson.  They decided that a utility infielder was a better choice for CF than Mullins.  They decision to not promote McKenna or Hays had more to do with their development than it did what was happening at the ML level. I'm not convinced they sent Mullins down to facilitate his development.  I think they looked at him, looked at Wilkerson, and wanted Wilkerson in CF.  I think they have written Mullins off as a prospect.
    • If he can throw and he isn't a waiver guy, maybe a team like Pittsburgh could use him. If he can't and is, maybe we can give his slot to Mason Williams. Slow day here.
