Maryland at Minnesota

Why does it seem like our opponents always shoot lights out from 3 to start the game?

Because we always leave wide open shooters behind the line.

Here we go again with the ref bias.

Minnesota has been perfect from the field and the Big-10 refs are doing their best to screw over Maryland once again. No wonder it's so tough to win on the road.

Can't start any better than Minnesota has. Sometimes a team is just red hot to start off a game. I mean, that team is never Maryland, but it does happen.

I had a bad feeling about the Ohio State game and was right.  Kind of thought MD had a better chance in this game.  Looks like I was wrong (lots of time left).  I'm not watching by the way, stuck at the library, following the box score.

Guard the three.  If I'm Turgeon I'm making that a priority in every single game from now on.  Teams thrive on that against us.  Pressure your defender and make them drive.

But we can’t make wide open 3s.

The threes made against us are ridiculous.  How many times does someone have to come to your house and kick your dog before you get pissed off and adjust?

I know.  And it is nonsensical.  These guys have played basketball for years.  Everyone should be able to hit threes now.  This isn't 1970 anymore.  They don't have to be Curry and Thompson, but they should be able to shoot way better than they do.

Notice how Petino called a timeout after three turnovers in a minute in a half? Turgeon waits until the other team goes on a 15-2 run before he calls timeouts.

Minnesota cannot keep this percentage up.  We are not great behind the Arc, but that was ridiculous.   MD will get better (Wiggins awful turnover just now notwithstanding). 

 

Edit: A 3-point attempt in an air ball for Minnesota.   No way they keep shooting like they were.

Seriously.  Ayala and Wiggins are the main culprits.  Stix and Cowan have been better, but they aren't exactly sharpshooters either.  Scott will occasionally hit one but that isn't his game.

Ultimately that will be our doom in March sadly.

Bold prediction, especially with us playing so bad this game, but I think we make it to the Elite 8 this year.  I think we get a two or three seed and have a draw which helps us get there.   That and the overall parity in the league this year.

Imagine if Fernando, Huerter and Justin Jackson were on this team.

Yea, but couldn't every college team say something similar?  But, man that would be a fun team to watch!
