Maryland women top North Carolina for fifth straight ACC title

Posted on 28 April 2013 by WNST Staff

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - No. 1 Maryland topped North Carolina 12-8 to capture its fifth straight Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Lacrosse Championship Sunday at Fetzer Field.

The Terps (19-0) were led by hat tricks from Brooke Griffin, Beth Glaros and Taylor Cummings. Katie Schwarzmann - who was named ACC Championship Most Valuable Player for the second straight season – tied a championship game record with four assists against the Tar Heels (14-3).

A tightly-contested first half began with both teams feeling out the wet conditions at Fetzer. It would be Maryland who would strike first with a Griffin goal at 27:00. North Carolina answered exactly three minutes later with a tally from Abbey Friend. Maryland’s rookie tandem put the Terps back on top with a Cummings goal from Halle Majorana at 17:47.

UNC’s Brittany Coppa and Kara Cannizzaro gave the Heels their first lead of the game with scores at 16:39 and 10:38 but Maryland surged ahead with three unanswered goals to cap the half with a 5-3 advantage at the break.

Kasey Howard led a solid defensive stand in the first half, tallying seven saves in the first 30 minutes alone.

The Terps kept that momentum rolling into the second, with three additional unanswered goals in the first five minutes of the stanza – including two from Griffin – for a decisive 8-3 advantage.

UNC finally stopped the scoring stretch with a goal from Emily Garrity at 24:11 but goals by Alex Aust, Griffin and Erin Collins extended the Maryland lead to 11-4. The Terps recorded six goals in the first 11 minutes of the period.

After a Cummings goal gave Maryland an eight-goal cushion with 14 minutes left, UNC recorded four straight to shrink the lead to five but the Terps held on for their 10th ACC tournament crown.

Maryland recorded a season-high 29 ground balls in arguably its best defensive performance of the year. Kelly McPartland, Iliana Sanza, Melissa Diepold and Cummings registered four apiece.

“I’m just so proud of this team and especially our senior class,” head coach Cathy Reese, who led Maryland to a fourth-straight win against Carolina in the title game, said. “We knew it was going to be a battle. You have two very talented teams playing against each other. I thought we played a great game defensively, probably the best we’ve played all season defensively. On offense, we were pretty smart with our decision making, especially in the second half, which allowed us to pull away with the win.”

In addition to Schwarzmann, Beth Glaros, Aust, Griffin, Cummings, and Howard were tabbed to the all-tournament team.

Maryland has next weekend off before it discovers its NCAA tournament destiny when the bracket is announced Sunday, May 5.

Nothing going for Maryland attack in ACC semi loss to Virginia

Posted on 26 April 2013 by WNST Staff

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Senior Owen Blye had a hat trick to lead the Terps, but No. 2 Maryland lost to Virginia, 13-6, in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament Friday evening at North Carolina’s Kenan Stadium.

The loss drops the Terps to 9-3 on the season, while the Cavaliers improve to 7-7.

The first quarter saw only one goal with Virginia’s Mark Cockerton scoring at the 14:01 mark. Maryland junior goalie Niko Amato was part of the reason for the Cavalier output, making three saves in the opening quarter.

Maryland got on the board first in the second when junior Mike Chanenchuk ripped a low shot from the right alley inside the far pipe to tie the game at 1-1 with 13:50 on the clock.

The Cavaliers responded quickly and retook the lead 35 seconds later on Cockerton’s second goal of the game.

The Virginia lead grew to 3-1 at the 11:05 mark of the second when the Wahoos’ extra-man unit converted on a holding penalty on Maryland’s Casey Ikeda.

Senior John Haus closed the Terrapin deficit to one when he got some inside leverage on a Virginia defender, tight-roped the crease and scored from inside with 4:46 to play in the second.

Virginia refused to allow the Terps to rally and used goals by Rob Emery and Cockerton to push the lead to three goals with 3:36 to go in the first half.

Blye opened the scoring in the second half, going around the left side of the goal and scoring unassisted to cut the Virginia lead to 5-3 at the 12:33 mark.

Virginia continued to respond to every Maryland goal with one of its own. This time it was Matt White scoring an unassisted goal to push the Wahoo lead back to three with 8:47 left in the third.

Maryland took advantage of a pair of non-releasable penalties on Virginia to score two extra-man goals to cut the Virginia lead to one with under 5:00 to play in the third.

Senior Jake Bernhardt scored the first, scoring on a step-down from the left alley off of a feed from Chanenchuk.

Chanenchuk was also on the giving end of the second extra-man goal; this time feeding Blye, who scored his second goal of the game.

But that was as close at the Terps would get as the Cavaliers rattled off seven straight goals of the game to take a 13-5 lead.

Blye scored his third of the game to finish his hat trick with less than 30 seconds left to make it a 13-6 final.

Maryland closes out its regular season on Saturday, May 4 with “Senior Day” at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium vs. Colgate. Faceoff is scheduled for noon.

Game Notes:
• With today’s 13-6 loss, Maryland is now 45-44 all-time vs. Virginia.
• With three points on a goal and two assists, junior Mike Chanenchuk now has 26 multi-point and seven multi-assist games for his career.
• With three points on three goals, senior Owen Blye now has seven hat tricks, 31 multi-point, and 18 multi-goal games in his career.
• Blye’s three points gives him 107 for his career tying him with Bill McGlone (2003-06) for 38th place on Maryland’s all-time points list.
• With 10 saves, junior Niko Amato recorded his seventh game this season and 19th of his career with at least 10 saves.

8 … Eight Terps have started all 11 games so far in 2013.
7 … Scott Hochstadt’s seven goals vs. Virginia in the 1998 ACC finals is still the record for goals in a single tournament game.
6 … Joe Walters scored six goals on 16 shots in the 2004 ACC championship game vs. Virginia.
5 … Owen Blye has five career points in ACC tournament play.
4 … Maryland has claimed four ACC tournament titles, including the 2004 championship that was held in Chapel Hill.
3 … Jay Carlson scored three goals vs. Virginia in the first meeting between the two schools this season.

1 … Only one current Terp - Jake Bernhardt - played in the 2009 ACC semifinal game vs. UNC in Keenan Stadium.

Coaching Match-Up
• John Tillman is in his sixth season as a head coach, and third with the Terps, with a 54-32 career record for a 62.8 winning percentage. Tillman is 34-13 (.723) as Maryland’s head coach. He had a 20-19 record in three seasons as the head coach at Harvard.

• Dom Starsia, who is in his 31st season as a head coach, has won 72.9 percent of his games at Brown and Virginia (347-129 overall record).


Series History vs. Virginia
• The Maryland-Virginia rivalry is the third-longest in Terrapin lacrosse history with Maryland holding a 45-43 (.511) advantage, dating to the first game — a Terps’ 10-1 victory on April 24, 1926. The 45 wins are the third-highest number of victories Maryland has against any team. The Terps have defeated Duke 60 times and Navy 52 times.

• Last season saw No. 2 Virginia hold off the No. 9 Terrapins, 12-8, in College Park. Joe Cummings had three points on two goals and an assist to lead Maryland, but it wasn’t enough as Steele Stanwick had three goals and five assists for the Wahoos.

• Virginia and Maryland met in an all-ACC NCAA title game in 2011 with the Wahoos winning the championship, 9-7. Grant Catalino and John Haus led the Terps with three points apiece. Niko Amato made eight saves in the game.

• In the 2011 regular season, the Cavaliers hosted the Terps in UVa’s Scott Stadium prior to the annual Orange/Blue Spring Football game. A crowd of 10,545 came out and saw Maryland defeate Virginia, 12-7. Ryan Young led all scorers with six points in the win on two goals and four assists, while Joe Cummings and John Haus each scored four goals for the Terps.Niko Amato proved once again that he plays his best on a big stage with a 12-save effort.

• The two teams met again in the championship game of the 2010 ACC Tournament and again it was the Cavaliers coming out on top, 10-6. Maryland couldn’t solve Virginia goalie Adam Ghitelman, who was named the Tournament MVP after making 16 saves vs. the Terps. Grant Catalino led Maryland on offense with a goal and an assist, while Max Schmidt had two groundballs and three caused turnovers to pace the defensive effort.

• The meeting in the 2010 regular season had a silimar theme to the previous two games between Maryland and Virginia – controversy. The Wahoos raced out to a 6-0 lead in the first quarter and held a 10-5 lead early in the fourth. But Maryland rallied to score four unanswered goals in the fourth to cut the deficit to one. The game appeared to be tied when Ryan Youngbatted a loose ball into the Cavalier goal with 2:00 left in the game. But, the goal was waved off when the cross-field official whistled Young for being in the crease. The controversy came when TV replays of the play failed to show Young step in the crease conclusively. Virginia went up 11-9 on the transition following the call. Will Yeatman, who led Maryland with four goals and an assist in the game, scored with less than a minute to go to cut the lead to 11-10, but the Terps couldn’t get the tying goal before the clock expired. Brian Phipps was terrific in net for the Terps, stopping 16 Wahoo shots.

• In 2009 it took seven overtimes (the longest Division I men’s lacrosse game in history) for Virginia to eek out a 10-9 victory in Charlottesville. The win was not without controversy as an official’s inadvertant whistle wiped off a goal by Grant Catalino just nine seconds into the first overtime. Will Yeatman was a dominant force in the game, accounting for two goals and three assists. Brian Phipps was spectacular in cage, stopping 11 Wahoo shots.

• The two teams played three times in 2008. In the regular-season game the then-No. 4 Terps knocked off the newly minted No. 1 Cavaliers, 13-7, at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium. Freshman Travis Reed had a breakout performance, scoring a hat trick, assisting on two other goals and grabbing three groundballs. Not to be outdone, goalie Jason Carter made a career-best 15 saves to help seal the victory for the Terrapins.

• The two teams then hooked-up in the 2008 ACC tournament for the fifth straight season and the Cavaliers prevailed with an 11-8 win on their home field in Charlottesville. Grant Catalino led the Terps with three points on a pair of goals and an assist.

• The Wahoos also took the rubber match, a controversial 8-7 overtime thriller in the NCAA Quarterfinals in Annapolis. Early in the fourth quarter, with the Maryland holding a 7-6 lead, Travis Reed appeared to give Maryland a two-goal cushion, but a Cavalier defender pushed Ryan Young into the crease before the goal, nullifying the score. The Cavaliers went on to tie the game in regulation before scoring the game-winner with just 34 seconds left in the first overtime period.

• These two teams locked up in a classic in the semifinals of the 2007 ACC tournament. Maryland jumped out to a 4-1 lead, but the Cavaliers rallied to take a four-goal lead at 10-6 in the fourth quarter. That’s when Maryland stormed back, but the comeback fell short and Virginia was able to hold on for an 11-10 win. Dan Groot led Maryland with five points on four goals and an assist.

• In 2007′s regular season meeting, the second-ranked Cavaliers defeated the No. 8 Terps 12-8 in Charlottesville. Wahoo attackman Ben Rubeor scored five goals to pace Virginia, while Max Ritz (3-0) and Michael Phipps (1-2) each had three points for the Terps.

• On April 1, 2006, the No. 1 Cavaliers jumped out early, scoring just 15 seconds into the game, and never looked back, handing Maryland a 15-5 loss at Byrd Stadium. The Ritz brothers, Max and Xander, each scored two goals with Max also picking up a pair of assists. Bill McGlone scored the other goal for the Terps.

• The two schools hooked up again in the ACC title game and again it was Virginia taking the game, this time by an 11-5 margin. Brendan Healy and Bill McGlone each had three points in the loss.

• The 2005 regular season game was tough for the fourth-ranked Terps as they were handed a 10-2 loss at No. 3 Virginia on April 2. The Cavaliers held Maryland scoreless until the 4:51 mark of the third quarter when Joe Walters scored. It was the first time Maryland had been held without a goal in a half since a 7-2 loss at Virginia in 2001.

• Things were a little different in the rematch on April 29, 2005 in the ACC Semifinals. Brendan Healy gave Maryland a 1-0 lead in the first, but the ‘Hoos scored three unanswered to take a 3-1 lead. But the Terps stormed back with a 3-0 run of their own on goals from Max Ritz, Healy and Xander Ritz to take a 4-3 lead into the half. The Cavaliers took a 7-5 lead into the fourth quarter, but Andrew Schwartzman and Bill McGlone scored the final to goals in regulation to send the game into sudden death. In the overtime period, freshman Max Ritz proved to be the hero for Maryland, but putting back a rebound off of a Mcglone shot to sent the Terps into the ACC finals with an 8-7 win.

• Maryland has won three of six meetings in the NCAA Tournament. The Terps topped the Cavaliers in a pair of first round games in 1978 and 1983 and won a 1997 quarterfinal game, 10-9, played at Byrd Stadium. In that last NCAA meeting, Virginia broke its three-game post-season losing streak to the Terps with a 14-4 win in the NCAA semifinals in Baltimore en route to the 2003 national championship. Virginia then took the 2008 quart erfinal game, 8-7, in overtime at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. The Cavaliers continues its winning streak over the Terps in the NCAA tournament with a 9-7 win in the 2011 NCAA title game..


Get To 10 And Win
• One axiom of lacrosse is that if you score 10 goals or more your chances of winning are pretty good. Well, a look at the results since 2002 shows that when Maryland scores 10 or more goals there’s not just a pretty good chance the Terrapins will win; it’s an almost certainty. Since 2002 Maryland has won 100 of the 109 games in which the Terps have scored 10 or more goals for a .917 winning percentage.

• Maryland scored 10, but fell at North Carolina, 11-10, on March 24, 2012 and again came out on the losing end, despite scoring 11 in a 13-11 loss at Colgate on May 5, 2012. The Terps scored 11 vs. Johns Hopkins on April 16, 2011, but the Blue Jays won the game in overtime, 12-11. On April 3 of last season the Terps lost to No. 1 Virginia by a final of 11-10, giving Maryland its only loss when scoring 10 or more goals in 2010. In 2009 the Terps lost to Georgetown, 13-10 on Feb. 21 and lost again when scoring 10 in the ACC Semifinals in a 16-10 defeat at North Carolina. Prior to that, Maryland had not lost when scoring 10 or more goals since dropping an 11-10 decision to Virginia in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament in Durham, N.C. The Terrapins got to 10 goals in the 100th game against Johns Hopkins, but the Blue Jays took the game 14-10. Virginia is the only team to beat the Terps twice when allowing 10 or more goals. The Wahoos did it first in 2002 with another 11-10 decision.

Holding Opponents To Single-Digits
• The Terps have been extremely impressive (winning 91.7 percent of its games since 2002) when it scores 10 or more goals, they have been nearly as impressive when holding opponents to less than 10 goals during that span.

• Since 2002 Maryland is 118-26 in games, for a .819 winning percentage, when it has held opponents under 10 goals. The Terps have played 191 total games since 2002. Maryland has held opponents to nine goals or less 75.4 percent of the time.


Shooting Tells The Story
• The difference between winning and losing for Maryland this season is simple – when the Terps shoot well they win. As it turns out 30% is the magic number for the Terps this season. Maryland is 9-2 on the year and has shot 30% or better in six of its nine victories and under that mark in each of its two defeats.

W- Mount St. Mary’s: 23 goals, 46 shots = 50.0%
W- at Hartford: 16 goals, 51 shots = 31.4%
W- at Loyola: 12 goals, 36 shots = 33.3%
W- at Duke: 16 goals, 29 shots = 55.2%
W- Stony Brook: 13 goals, 30 shots = 43.3%
W- at Villanova: 10 goals, 26 shots = 38.5%

L- North Carolina: 8 goals, 37 shots = 21.6%
W- at Virginia: 9 goals, 32 shots = 28.1%
W- at Navy: 11 goals, 40 shots = 27.5%
L-Johns Hopkins: 4 hoals, 36 shots = 11.1%
W- Yale, 8 goals, 29 shots = 27.6%

• Since 2005 the Terps are a remarkable 61-4 (.938) when shooting 30% or better in a game. The only four losses were: 13-10 to Georgetown in 2009 (the Terps shot 10 of 30 for 33.3% vs. the Hoyas), 11-10 to No. 1 Virginia on April 3, 2010 (10 of 33 for 30.3%), 12-11 in overtime on April 16, 2011 to No. 3 Johns Hopkins (11 of 28 for 39.3%) and 13-11 at Colgate on May 5, 2012 (11 of 31 for 35.5%).

• If 30% is the benchmark, then 40% shooting is in a class all to itself and Maryland has shot 40% or better in 14 games since the start of the 2008 season. Out of those 14 games, Maryland shot 50% or better in four of them.


Three Terps Earn All-ACC Honors
• Maryland placed three players on the 2013 All-ACC Men’s Lacrosse Team, which was announced on April 24 by the Atlantic Coast Conference. Junior goalieNiko Amato made the team for the third-straight season, while senior long poleJesse Bernhardtand senior midfielderJohn Hausare two-time honorees.

• All four ACC men’s programs are represented on the annual All-ACC team, which was determined by a vote of the four head coaches. Maryland’s three honorees were the tied by Duke and Virginia, which each also had three selections, while North Carolina had two players make the team. .


Three Terps Named To Tewaaraton Watch List
• Senior midfielders Jesse Bernhardt and John Haus are joined by junior goalie Niko Amato on the 2013 Tewaaraton Award Watch List. The Terrapin trio are three of 92 selections on the Watch List. 

• The Tewaaraton Award annually honors the top male and top female college lacrosse player in the United States. The selection committees are made up of top collegiate coaches and are appointed annually by The Tewaaraton Foundation. Committees will make additions to these lists as the season progresses and athletes earn a spot along side these elite players. The lists will be narrowed to 25 men’s and women’s nominees in late April. In mid-May, five men’s and five women’s finalists will be announced. These finalists will be invited to Washington, D.C. for the 13th annual Tewaaraton Award Ceremony, May 30 at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian.

The 700 Club
· Maryland’s 15-6 victory over Penn on April 14, 2009 was the program’s 700th victory in 84 seasons of varsity men’s lacrosse. The Terps join Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, Navy and Army as the only programs with 700 or more Division I wins.

· Two things that make Maryland’s accomplishment all the more impressive is that the Terps reached the 700-win plateau in just their 84th season. Only Syracuse reached win No. 700 in as few seasons, but it took the Orange 53 more games than Maryland. In fact, Maryland needed only 940 games to reach 700 wins and only Johns Hopkins needed fewer games (932) to hit the historic number, but the Blue Jays did so in their 105th season.

Terps’ 88th Season Of Lacrosse
• The Terps boast an all-time record of 746-251-4 (.747), dating back to the first varsity team in 1924 (a team was not fielded in 1944 and 1945 due to World War II). Maryland has finished every one of its previous 87 seasons with a .500 or better record, including last season when the Terps went 12-6. The program reached the 700-win milestone with a 15-6 victory over Penn on April 14, 2009 at Ludwig Field.

 

• During the decade of the 2000s, Maryland went 111-49 for a .694 win percentage, making it the winningest decade in Terrapin lacrosse history. In the decade of the 1990s, Maryland posted a 95-47 record. The .669 winning percentage matched Maryland’s win percentage of the 1980s when the Terps went 83-41 and also compiled a .669 win percentage. So far, Maryland is 25-9 in the 2010′s for a .735 winning percentage.


Terps On ESPNU
• Maryland has had 46 games on ESPNU since 2006. Maryland is 26-20 (.565) all-time in games broadcast on ESPNU.

• The Terps are scheduled to play four games (at Duke (W, 16-7), at Virginia (W, 9-7), vs. Johns Hopkins (L, 4-7) and the ACC tournament semifinals) on ESPNU in 2013.

• Cornell’s string of seven-straight 10+ win seasons came to an end in 2012 with a 9-4 final mark.


Maryland In Season Openers
• Maryland has an 84-3-1 (.960) lifetime record in season openers dating back to the 1924 season. The Terps have won their last 19 openers and 26 of the last 27, with the only loss coming to Duke in 1993, when they fell to Duke 9-5 on March 6. 

• After losing their 1925 opener to Yale, 5-3, the Terps went on to win 40 consecutive season openers from 1926 through 1967. The streak was broken when Maryland tied Princeton, 6-6, in the 1968 opener. Following the deadlock, Maryland went on to win its next 14 openers, giving the Terps a 54-0-1 record over a 57-year span (Maryland did not field a team in 1944 and 1945 due to World War II.)

20 Straight in Season Openers
• After beating Mount St. Mary’s to open the 2013 season the Terps have an 20-game winning streak in season openers. Five of those wins came against Villanova (1994-98) and the last nine over Denver, Mount St. Mary’s (twice), Air Force, Hobart, Duke, Georgetown (four times), Bellarmine (twice), Presbyterian, Detroit Mercy and Hartford. Over the 20-year stretch, Maryland outscored its foes 290-105 (an average score of 14.5-5.3) in those games.

• The Terps have not allowed more than seven goals to any opponent in a season opener over the last 20 years. Maryland has not allowed an opponent to score 10 or more goals in a season opener since Syracuse beat the Terps, 16-13 on March 9, 1983.

A Family Affair
· Many school’s refer to their sports programs as families, but the Maryland men’s lacrosse program is truely a family affair. Since 2002, the Terps have had 13 sets of brothers, including three on this season’s roster, don the red and black together for at least one season.

• Bernhardt was chosen fourth overall by the Chesapeake Bayhawks, becoming the second-highest Terrapin ever drafted in the MLL (Joe Walters, first overall selection in 2006).

• Senior midfielder John Haus was the next Terrapin off the board, going to the Hamilton Nationals in the second round with the 15th overall selection. Haus was followed by senior midfielder Kevin Cooper, who went to the Bayhawks with the 16th overall pick.

• The Denver Outlaws, which already has three Terps on its roster (Zink, Jeremy Sieverts and Drew Snider), were then next MLL squad to take a Maryland player, selecting senior midfielder Landon Carr with the 23rd overall selection.

• The fifth Terp to be selected was senior attackman Owen Blye with the very next pick by the Charlotte Hounds.

• The five players selected ties the school record for most players taken in the MLL draft. The 2011 senior class also had five players taken - Brian Farrell, Brett Schmidt, Dan Burns, Grant Catalino and Ryan Young.

Turgeon believes Terps “tougher physically and mentally” headed into ACC Tourney

Posted on 13 March 2013 by WNST Staff

Head Coach Mark Turgeon

 

On where the team is heading into the ACC Tournament:

“I came here to build a great program and we’re taking steps towards that. We’re much further along than I anticipated at this point in time. I want to finish strong. We really wanted that win at Virginia. We wanted a quality road win and we came up a little bit short, so I want to finish strong. We’ve got a Wake Forest team that’s going to be inspired to play against us because we’ve beaten them twice.  If we’re lucky enough to win that one, we’ll go from there. We just want to finish strong. We want to play well. We felt liked we played well against Virginia and we’re becoming a tougher team physically and mentally. We’re heading in the right direction.”

 

On playing Wake Forest for the third time and having success in the first two meetings:

“At home we were fantastic. We were really good, it was a must-win game for us and we just shot out of a cannon. At their place, our backs were against the wall and we used the motivation of Chris Paul Day, Senior Day. I thought we really defended well. We played with toughness. I’m sure they’re fired up to play us, and my whole deal is just getting my guys’ mindset that Wake is going to come after us, and we have to be ready for it.”

 

On Dez Wells’ play against Wake:

“He made a couple shots in the first game and in the second game he really got to the glass. We got out on the break, we made some steals, and he’s been much more aggressive for us, which he needs to be.”

 

On going into the ACC Tournament:

“We just want to keep getting better. We’re about building the program. We’re a better team than we were last year. Maybe lost a game or two we didn’t expect to lose this year, but we’re getting better. Played well at Virginia but just came up short. We want to get better, get our confidence going into the ACC tournament and then whatever postseason we play after that.”

 

On how the players responded to the loss:

“Kids are resilient. That was the worst I’ve seen our guys hurt after the game so we’re getting somewhere. They’re investing a lot more into our program, and the young guys are starting to grow up. If you can’t get juiced up for postseason tournaments, you shouldn’t be playing basketball.”

 

Sophomore guard/forward Dez Wells

 

On playing in the ACC Tournament:

“The beauty of college basketball is anyone can be beaten. It’s really dangerous when you get to tournament time because you don’t have to be the best team, you just have to be the best team on a given night for 40 minutes. That’s something that really makes the tournament so interesting to watch.”

 

On the prospects of making a run in the tournament:

“We just have to come out and give it our all every night; who knows what can happen? The only thing we can control is our effort. If we give 100 percent and we keep fighting, keep getting after it, keep scratching and clawing, I think we can see some positive results.”

 

Sophomore guard Nick Faust

 

On playing how they did in the first half against Virginia:

“The offense really clicked in the first half against Virginia. I got some good open looks and was able to take advantage of them. We just have to continue to get everyone involved the way we did in that first half. It’s a new season and we’re excited and confident.”

Yes. We ALL feel the same way about Jessica Rabbit. We just agree not to talk about it so that people don’t talk about us behind our backs.

We CAN however discuss the cast of Spring Breakers if you’d like.

And before we leave this part of the show, BANGERS AND EFFING MASH! ERIN GO BRAGH!

Gary Williams to join ACC Legends class

Posted on 31 January 2013 by WNST Staff

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Former Maryland head coach Gary Williams will be one of 13 members of the 2013 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Basketball Legends Class, league commissioner John Swofford announced Thursday.

 

Williams, who led the Terrapins to the 2002 National Championships and to 14 NCAA Tournament appearances in his 22 seasons at College Park, is one of two coaches in the class, joining former Wake Forest coach Carl Tracy.

 

Also included on the team is a member of the ACC’s 50th Anniversary basketball team, six former All-Americas, three former All-ACC selections, six former NBA Draft selections and four players who led their teams to five ACC Championships.

 

Making up the rest of the class are: former ACC Commissioner Gene Corrigan;  Boston College’s Gerry Ward; Clemson’s Terrell McIntyre; Duke’s Trajan Langdon; Georgia Tech point guard Mark Price; Florida State’s Tharon Mayes; Miami’s Mike Wittman; North Carolina’s Mike O’Koren; NC State’s Dereck Whittenburg; Virginia’s Travis Watson; and Virginia Tech’s Ace Custis.

 

One of the most respected coaches in ACC history, Williams took over the Maryland program in 1990 and rebuilt the Terrapins into a national basketball powerhouse. In all, he won 461 games in 22 seasons at his alma mater, posting a 461-252 (.647) to become the winningest coach in Terrapin history.

 

Known for his fiery coaching style, Williams led Maryland to 14 NCAA appearances, including two Final Four appearances. He was named National Coach of the Year after leading Maryland to the 2002 NCAA National Championship, the first ever for the school. He was twice named ACC Coach of the Year (2002, 2010) and led the Terps to the 2004 ACC Tournament Championship.

 

A native of Collingswood, N.J., Williams played three seasons at Maryland (1964-67) as a point guard for Coach Bud Millikan and was named team captain in his senior season of 1967.

 

He graduated in 1968 with a degree in Marketing and spent three seasons as a high school coach before beginning his college coaching career as an assistant at Lafayette (1972-73) and Boston College (1973-78). He then served as a head coach at American University (1978-82), Boston College (1982-86) and Ohio State (1986-89) before taking over at Maryland.

 

He has an overall coaching record of 668-380 (.637) for 33 seasons and ranks 34th on the NCAA’s all-time wins list. In all, he led his teams to 17 NCAA Tournament appearances and 8 trips to the NIT. He finished his career ranked 3rd among all ACC coaches in total wins and ACC victories trailing only Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina’s Dean Smith.
