Farewell to the ACC

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. :)
