Terps game thread

Recommended Posts

Pathetic end to the regular season, losing to Northwestern and Penn State.  Disappointed but not surprised because this is par for the course for Turgeon.  Seems like the team has fallen off a cliff every March since he’s been here.  Hopefully we miss the tournament and Turgeon is shown the door.

Extremely disappointing.  A loss at Northwestern I can somewhat understand, but not at home to Penn State on senior night.  I believe they will need to beat Michigan State to make the tournament.  Game could be for Turgeon's job.

He's got two years left on his deal.  Will the school be willing to eat over 5M?

Good point.  I am not sure the stipulations of the contract or if that money is guaranteed.  If it is then they would probably ride out the two years.  Then again if alumni and program boosters are mad enough then the AD may feel pressure to act.

If an alumni was willing to write the check...

The problem with riding it out is that you pretty much guarantee poor recruiting as having an obvious lame duck HC will be used against them in recruiting.   Which means the next time you will have a team with quality junior and senior leadership that was recruited by the next head coach will be around 2026.

Ayala with a huge step back 3 at the buzzer to end the first half.  He is leading the team.  Hamilton hit a couple of big 3s too.  Team is doing work at the free throw line.  Stepped up the defense after a rough start.  Defense is their calling card!  See if Turgeon can keep them focused.  Must win.

Maryland making it look easy!  Playing with tons of energy, hustling for every rebound and outmuscling MSU.  Ayala and Wiggins are being aggressive, Wiggins has shown some amazing footwork near the rim.  Impressive win!  Bring on Michigan!

Terps look to be on their way to a big win. I thought they would lose to the Spartans this time around. I returned to being doubtful about their NCAA bid because of their last 3 games. but this win makes me confident that they are in the tourney.

Well they played really well for about 16 minutes, then they let the game get away from them.  Stopped hitting 3s and stopped playing defense.  Michigan took advantage of our lack of size and abused us inside.  Juwan Howard and Turgeon had a little tiff and Howard got ejected.  Maryland responded but then Michigan just started hitting every shot.  They are a dangerous team, I expect them to win the Big 10 tourney and make a run to the Final 4.

On to the NCAA.  If they can win a single game I will be impressed.  The fact that they are even there is impressive.

10 seed in Michigan's bracket.

 

In the extremely unlikely event that both Maryland and Michigan make the elite 8, that game will be quality entertainment.

Playing #7 Connecticut.  I only saw them play a few times this year, Bouknight is a dangerous scorer.  They have a couple big dudes that can bang down low.  They seem to shoot the ball fairly well, but that can change if Maryland plays solid defense.  We'll see.
