1/20 Game Thread - Virginia

When we aren't getting fast break points our offense is really ugly. No post presence and only one guy who can beat you off the dribble is a bad combo.

On the bright side it's nice to see Dinosaur Gregory getting some good minutes. Also, Sugar Sean Mosely is such a smart player for a freshman. He does all the little things.

UVa has played much, much better in the 2nd half. They were turning the ball over so much in the first half they couldnt get anything going.

Now they are pounding the ball to Scott which is exactly what they should be doing all the time.

He is a really good player.

Another quiet game for Landesberg. So far.

Well, looks like we won't get the W, but can't expect that on the road with the sort of team we have this season.

That said, I can't tell you how excited I am for the future of this team. We only lose Diane from this team, and Scott has really started to show how good of a player he can be. Zeglinski has been inconsistent, but has shown flashes of being a good PG. Tucker is a great college inside-out player. Farrakhan and Jones are both streaky shooters who can roll when they are on, but also can kill you when they are off. Sene is also still a freshmen, but looks pretty comfortable on the defensive end.

Landesberg has now had two straight pretty sub-par games, but it's gonna take a lot more than that for me to get down on him, considering he was incredible in just about every other one this season.

Love what Coach Leitao is doing down in Charlottesville.

Nice job by the Terps tonight to hold on. I gotta say, I do usually root for them when they arent playing us. Like seeing the non-NC teams win as much as possible.

Except for the Hokies. :P

Landon Milbourne is absolutely the unsung hero of this team. He's been doing a great job doing an absolutely thankless job of having to be the only reliable "big" man the Terps have.

The inside presence of this team is really a joke, plus we clearly have almost no killer instinct.

I'm really pissed off that this team isn't 4-0 in the ACC and 15-2 overall. We very easily could be and be in great position for the rest of the season.

Agreed 100%. Milbourne has been incredible for you guys this year, and if you guys had any sort of big man, he would be even more effective. REally like him for you guys.

Mack, what did you think of Scott for UVa tonight? Trying to get as many non-biased opinions as I can, because he has impressed the hell out of me all year.

I think if he was on the Terps we'd be a top-20 team.

I don't know if he's a superstar, dominating inside against Maryland isn't aying much, but he was leading the ACC in offensive rebounding coming in, right? He's incredibly active on the interior. He's definitely, at the very least, a legit ACC caliber starting big man. A guy who could play for any team.

It's pretty remarkable how much the interest in this program has died down. I was at the game tonight and there were a ridiculous amount of empty seats. I know it's UVA, but it's still an ACC game nevertheless. Even the students weren't into it much. Pretty sad.

At least we got the W.

Yes, he leads the conference in offensive rebounding. So aggressive on the boards.

That was where I was getting at, basically. Watching both of these teams so closely, I agree that if Scott was on this Maryland team they would probably be right with Clemson as far as being the 4th best team in the conference this year.
