Good Riddance DUKE

Posted on 19 February 2013 by Tom Federline

Is it over? Are they finally gone? Have we seen the last of the Duke Blue Devils basketball team in the state of Maryland? We couldn’t have bid them a finer farewell! The Good (Terps) 83 points, the Bad (refs – relentless grief from the student section) and the Ugly Dukies 81 points - See Ya! The Terps get the Dukies once next year during the regular season and Mark Turgeon probably said it best – “Doubt the ACC is going to do us any favors.” With the Big Ten move, it appears we have seen the last of Duke at College Park. I am old school, I am a Maryland alum, I am sick of Coach K (the Rat Man) and I am sick of Duke basketball.

Hopefully you caught the show Saturday evening. It was quite an event. It was ugly, (26 turnovers), but they won. The young Terps refused to lose. The rested Terps ran circles around los arrogant ones, out rebounded the Dukies 40 -20, shot like 60%  and still barely managed to squeak out a 2-point victory. Carolina refs were present. I had to mute Doris (Dukie) Burke many times throughout the broadcast. Some young smart mouthed kid named Quinn Cook, (Dukie guard) claimed Gary Williams court was ”his city”.  And Lenny ate up Mason Plumlee. “O” that’s right, he was exhausted. Eat it Coach K.

Best part about watching it on ESPN? The crowd played well on the tube. I am not much on the cursing from the student section – I believe they could be more creative. But for once, I was glad to hear and even proud at times of “REF – YOU S…K”! Because they did and a national television audience got a taste of what loyal Terp fans have been getting handed for the past 40 years – lopsided calls. Doris (Dukie) Burke did acknowledge the late game ”charging” call on Dez Wells, ”should have been a no call”, when a Pukie had clearly not established ground. I do not agree with the “Rock n’ Roll Part II” - (Gary Glitter)/ Hey, You S…k chant, when the #2 in the nation is in your house. They are not in the top 10 because they s…k. I really don’t like it against any team. But, since it was Puke and since it was the last time they were going to be here….let ’em have it. I also did enjoy the “B…L S…T”, “You Can’t Do That”, “LET’S GO TERPS”, etc. The place was electric. If you haven’t seen this “flash mob” clip, watch it. Terpland on a high -http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=G1qoZxWAsk8  – it was good clean fun.

My daughter was there. She hit me up with text pictures. From the early afternoon pics, 4 hours prior to game time and Terp faithful lined up outside waiting to get in, up until the storming of the court after the final buzzer. Got me all choked up inside. The kids experienced a night at Comcast, that hopefully will never forget.”O” the memories…………..my “stormin’ the court game” was when the Terps beat then #1 ranked UVA and Ralph Sampson (1982), in overtime at Cole. I remember Adrian Branch going off and Mark Fothergill playing Sampson tough. Then I believe Fothergill hit a late game field goal from the corner to ice it. Do you all have a “stormin the court” moment?

I don’t like Duke. I have not liked Duke since Jim Spanarkel and Mike Gminski. I am tired of the arrogance. I am tired of the preferential treatment. I am tired of the money. I am tired of the whining. I am tired of them winning. I am tired of Mike Krzyzewski. And if those weren’t reasons enough, there was the Final Four game in 2001. That loss still gives me chills. I dislike Duke more than any other sports team. I don’t like the majority of Yankee fans, Steeler fans and especially Red Sox fans. The teams…….. I can put up with (well, maybe not the Yankees). But Duke is in a class all by itself. It has always been, “Anybody but Duke”.  I really think that adage originated with Duke basketball. I am not going to miss Terps/Duke basketball. I know my blood pressure will be better for it.

I’m not buying this, “the rivalry is gone”. Duke is not our rival, people. UVA is our rival. The Duke rival is UNC. Terp fans don’t like Duke. Terp fans want to beat Duke. Terp fans would like to think Duke is our rival……….but they are not. And who should care anymore? We gone. We is going to the midwest. Now watch, Coach K will retire. The 5 Super Conferences are right around the corner. The real intrigue is, who will be following the Terps to the Big 20 or whatever the conference becomes? All I can say is, anybody is welcome, “Anybody But Duke!” GO TERPS!

D.I.Y.

Your Monday Reality Check: Happy for Turgeon but hardly sympathetic

Your Monday Reality Check: Happy for Turgeon but hardly sympathetic

Posted on 18 February 2013 by Glenn Clark

For what felt like the first time in the Mark Turgeon era, Comcast Center housed an incredible, big-game, “I swear to God I’m not sure the roof will be able to take this” atmosphere Saturday night as the University of Maryland stunned #2 (#1 according to the coaches) Duke 83-81.

It was an incredible night. The game itself was captivating, as the Terrapins completely squandered a late 10 point lead before two Seth Allen free throws saved them. There was controversy in officiating, a high level of intensity and physicality from players and a number of big time shots made by likely future NBA players like Seth Curry, Alex Len and Quinn Cook.

But even more captivating was the atmosphere in the building, which reached a Gary Williams era-esque “fever pitch” at multiple times. Celebrities, dignitaries and former Terps filled the building, students arrived hours early and delivered a charming first half flash mob before emptying onto the floor (and College Park’s Route 1) following the victory.

It was a two and a half hour frenzy, a feeling that remained palpable even as I watched the replay of the game Sunday night on ESPNU.

The victory was emotional for a number of reasons. It was emotional because it was a throwback to a decade ago, when the level of the Maryland-Duke series rivaled even Duke-North Carolina as the best in the entire sport. It was emotional because it gave a major shot in the arm to the fledgling NCAA Tournament hopes of a Terps team in danger of missing out on March Madness for a third consecutive season. It was emotional because there is clearly a renewed level of bad blood between the programs based on Maryland’s decision to bolt the ACC in favor of the Big Ten. In the week leading up to the game Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski made it clear Duke wouldn’t be continuing a series with the Terps after the conference change happened and after the game he continued to fire shots in the direction of a program that helped to put the ACC on the map.

But it was incredibly emotional in particular for head coach Mark Turgeon, who had yet to record a “signature” win as he began the homestretch in his second season in College Park. Students rushed the floor following the Terps’ win over then-Number 14 North Carolina State earlier in the season, but even at the time the win felt a bit flimsy. Maryland had made a habit out of knocking off top ranked teams under Williams but hadn’t made a similar level of national noise yet under Turgeon.

Yet when asked about what the win meant to him, Turgeon offered an unpredictable answer.

“It’s been a hard week”, Turgeon started while fighting back tears. ”I take a lot of pride in my coaching. I don’t do a lot of things well, but I’d like to think I can coach a little bit and I haven’t done a very good job.”

“It’s been a hard week on my family. It was hard on my son. Last week he had to leave the gym because the fans were so hard on his dad.”

The coach then motioned in the direction of his son and noted pointedly “this was for them.” He continued by saying “I got a loyal family. It’s very loyal to me.”

Perhaps the biggest takeaway from Turgeon’s postgame press conference was his simplistic “I wanted to beat Duke” statement (which every Maryland fan everywhere echoes at just about all times), but the story about his son was clearly the most emotional.

If you haven’t seen the Maryland student flash mob from Saturday you should

Posted on 17 February 2013 by WNST Staff

University of Maryland students organized quite an impressive “flash mob” performance during the team’s 83-81 win over Duke Saturday night at Comcast Center. The students danced to a medley of songs in the first half, including DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win”. In the second half, the students put together an impressive live take on the viral “Harlem Shake” sensation.

If you weren’t at the game and missed the performances, check them out here…

Posted on 16 February 2013 by WNSTV

Maryland faces crucial showdown with Duke Saturday night

Posted on 15 February 2013 by WNST Staff

Maryland (17-7, 5-6 ACC) vs. #2 Duke (22-2, 9-2 ACC)

 

Saturday, February 16, 2013 • 6 p.m. ET

Game #25 • Home Game #17 • College Park, Md. • Comcast Center

TV: ESPN – Dave O’Brien (Play-by-Play), Doris Burke (Analyst) & Jeannine Edwards (Sidelines)

Radio: Terrapin Sports Radio Network – Johnny Holliday (Play-by-Play), Chris Knoche (Analyst) & Walt Williams (Sidelines)

 

Storyline

 

• Following a five-day break from games, Maryland returns to action on Saturday as it plays host to second-ranked Duke at 6 p.m. in Comcast Center. The Terps are 17-7 and 5-6 in the ACC after suffering just their second home defeat of the season last Sunday against Virginia. Duke is 22-2 and 9-2 in the conference after a 73-68 win over North Carolina on Wednesday.

 

• Against Virginia, Maryland trailed at halftime for the first time at home this season, as the Cavaliers shot 52.2 percent in the opening 20 minutes and finished the game at 54.2 percent, the best by a Maryland opponent this year. After shooting just 35.5 percent in the first half, the Terps responded by knocking down 16 of 27 shots (.593) in the second half, but were unable to get closer than seven points down the stretch.

 

• The Terps rank second in the ACC in field goal percentage at .472 and have exceeded the 40 percent mark in each of the last six games. In that six-game stretch, the Terps have shot it well from beyond the arc, hitting 54 of 96 shots (.404). Jake Layman (12-29, .414), Logan Aronhalt (11-24, .458) and Dez Wells (8-15, .533) have been the biggest contributors from the perimeter of late.

 

• Maryland has ranked in the top-10 nationally throughout much of the season in opponent field goal percentage. Opposing teams have shot just 36.7 percent against the Terrapins, a mark which leads the ACC and ranks seventh nationally. Virginia was just the second team this season to make better than 50 percent of its shots against Maryland; eight of 11 conference opponent have shot under 38 percent.

 

• Virginia became the first team this season to outrebound the Terps, finishing with a 34-29 advantage on the boards. Still, Maryland is just one of two teams in the nation with an average rebounding margin in double figures. The Terps are second at plus-10.3, behind just Colorado State (plus-13.8).

 

Maryland-Duke Series History

 

• Maryland trails the all-time series 61-113, which dates back to 1925. The Terps trail the series 37-40 at home, with their last win in Comcast coming on March 3, 2010. In that game, the 22nd-ranked Terrapins got 20 points from Greivis Vasquez on senior night, to help knock off the fourth-ranked Blue Devils.

 

• Duke won the first meeting this season, 84-64 in Durham on Jan. 26, and has won six straight in the series. In the earlier meeting, Dez Wells and Charles Mitchell paced Maryland with 13 points each and the Terps trailed by just eight at halftime before Duke opened it up in the second half. Rasheed Sulaimon led Duke with 25 points, Mason Plumlee had 19 and the Blue Devils shot 52.4 percent in the game.

Terps try to get offense going at #1 Duke Saturday

Posted on 25 January 2013 by WNST Staff

After defeating Boston College 64-59 Tuesday night, Maryland heads south for a road test at No. 1 Duke on Saturday at 1 p.m. The Terrapins are tied for seventh place in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a 3-3 record, a game behind second-place NC State and 2.5 games behind Miami, which at 5-0 is the last team with an unblemished league record. The Blue Devils are ranked No. 1 in both polls and are 3-2 in the league after a 90-63 setback at Miami on Wednesday night.

Storyline

• Propelled by a strong second half, Maryland improved its record to 15-4 with the win over BC. Jake Layman scored 10 of his 15 points after halftime, and the Terrapins shot 48.3 percent in the second half. Dez Wells efficiently ran the offense in the second half, recording seven of his career-high eight assists without committing a turnover in the final 20 minutes. Nick Faust scored nine of his 11 points in the second half, including five in the final 1:37 to help ice the game.

• Alex Len recorded his fifth double-double of the season with 16 points and 13 boards against the Eagles. He leads the team and ranks 15th in the ACC in scoring (13.5 per game) and sixth in rebounding (8.2 per game). With seven of the 10 players in Maryland’s regular rotation either freshmen or sophomores, the majority of Maryland’s scoring this season has come from underclassmen. Of the 71.8 points per game Maryland is averaging, 58.2 come from underclassmen (81 percent).

• The Terps have held all six ACC opponents under 38 percent shooting and the last five opponents to 65 points or fewer. Opponents are shooting just 35.1 percent against Maryland this season, a mark which ranks third nationally behind just Texas (34.5) and Kansas (34.8). Maryland has also outrebounded all 19 opponents this season and ranks third in the country in rebounding margin (plus-10.4).


Maryland-Duke Series History

• Maryland trails the all-time series 61-112, which dates back to 1925. The Terps trail the series 15-56 on the road, with their last win in Cameron coming on Feb. 28, 2007. In that game, the 24th ranked Terrapins defeated the 14th-ranked Blue Devils, 85-77.

• Duke won both meetings last season, including a 73-55 victory in Durham, and has won five straight in the series. Maryland’s last victory came on March 3, 2010, a 79-72 win in Comcast Center.


Quick Hitters

• Maryland last defeated a No. 1 team on Jan. 19, 2008, when it beat North Carolina 82-80 in Chapel Hill, N.C. That was also Maryland’s last win over a ranked team on the road.

• Maryland’s 51-50 win over then-No. 14 NC State on Jan. 16 was its first win over a ranked opponent since March 3, 2010, when it beat No. 4 Duke 79-72 at home.

• Maryland ranks second in the ACC in field goal percentage at .468, behind just NC State (.510). The Terps shot 42.4 percent against Boston College, snapping a streak of four straight games in which they shot under 40 percent. Prior to that streak of four games, Maryland had shot better than 40 percent in 12 of its previous 13 games.

• The Terps are 14-0 this season when they have the lead with 5:00 left in the game, and 1-0 when tied with 5:00 left.

• The 13-game winning streak Maryland went on earlier this season is tied for the second longest in school history, trailing just the 14-game streak the Terps went on in 1931-32. Maryland also went on a 13-game win streak in 2001-02, the year they went on to win the national title.

• It was also the 11th time in school history Maryland has put together a 10-game winning streak. In the past 30 years, Maryland has gone on a 10-game winning streak on six occasions, and in each of the previous instances it has gone on to play in the NCAA Tournament.

• Logan Aronhalt is averaging one 3-point field goal made for every 7.7 minutes on the floor. By comparison, the ACC leader in 3PT FGs made, Reggie Bullock of North Carolina, makes one every 11 minutes on the floor.

• Seven of the 10 players in Maryland’s regular rotation are underclassmen and 81 percent of Maryland’s scoring (58.2 of 71.8 points per game) is coming from underclassmen. Additionally, Maryland’s top four scorers are underclassmen.

• At least eight players have scored in 16 of Maryland’s 19 games this year. The exceptions are vs. George Mason, at Miami and at North Carolina, when just seven players scored.

• Maryland has nearly made more free throws (262) than the opponent has attempted (276) this season. The Terps are 10-1 when making more free throws than the opponent.

• When Seth Allen, Jake Layman and Shaquille Cleare drew starts against UMES, it marked the first time Maryland started three true freshmen since Dec. 28, 1993, when Keith Booth, Matt Kovarik and Joe Smith did vs. Hofstra.

• Charles Mitchell earned ACC Rookie of the Week honors on Dec. 31 for his play against Delaware State on Dec. 29. Mitchell came off the bench to score 19 points and grab 14 rebounds, both career highs. Mitchell is the second Terp to earn weekly ACC honors; Alex Len was Player of the Week on Nov. 12.


Hitting the Mark

• Maryland has assisted on 61 percent (305 of 500) of its field goals this season. The Terps have recorded double-digit assists in 17 of 19 games (exceptions are at Miami & at North Carolina), and are 14-1 when recording at least 14 assists.

• On average, Maryland has recorded 17.7 assists per game in wins, while in its four losses it has averaged just 9.8.


Field-goal Percentage Defense

• Maryland leads the ACC and ranks third nationally in field goal percentage defense at .351. The Terps have held 13 of the last 15 opponents under 40 percent shooting, with Stony Brook and IUPUI being the exceptions. Maryland has held each of its six ACC opponents under 38 percent shooting (VT – .373; FSU – .367; Miami – .349; NC State – .311; North Carolina – .354; Boston College – .357).

• Since 2000, five Terrapin teams have held the opponent under 40 percent shooting. Of those five, four went on to at least the second round of the NCAA Tournament.


Super Subs

• Maryland’s bench has been an asset all season, as the Terps’ non-starters have outscored the opponents non-starters in 16 of 19 games (exceptions are Kentucky, George Mason & North Carolina).

• On the year, Maryland’s bench has a 480-200 (25.3 to 10.5 per game) advantage over the opponent.

• All 10 players in Maryland’s regular rotation are averaging double-figure minutes, and no player is averaging more than 27 minutes per game (Alex Len is first at 26.4).

• Logan Aronhalt has been a consistent contributor as a long-range specialist. He is eight 3-point field goals made shy of qualifying for the ACC lead, but his .476 mark from beyond the arc would lead the league. He has made at least one 3-pointer in 15 of 19 games this season. Of his 32 field goals made this season, 30 are 3-pointers.

Maryland F Mitchell named ACC Rookie of the Week

Posted on 31 December 2012 by WNST Staff

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Duke’s Seth Curry has been named the ACC Player of the Week while Maryland’s Charles Mitchell has been selected the conference’s Rookie of the Week.

 

Curry scored a career-high 31 points in top-ranked Duke’s 90-77 win over Santa Clara on Saturday at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Charlotte, N.C., senior went 12-of-18 from the field, including 4-of-7 from three-point range, and 3-of-4 from the foul line in recording his first 30+ point game as a Blue Devil. He also added three rebounds and an assist in 36 minutes of action. Curry scored 18 second half points, including 12 points during a 21-3 Blue Devil run early in the half that turned a four-point deficit into a 62-48 lead with 9:13 remaining.

 

Mitchell led Maryland to its 11th straight victory by coming off the bench and setting season highs with 19 points and 14 rebounds in a 79-50 win over Delaware State Saturday afternoon. The Marietta, Ga., freshman connected on 8-of-12 field goals, while seven of his 14 boards were on the offensive end. Mitchell, who ranks first among ACC freshmen with 6.9 rebounds per game, recorded a double-double for the third time this season.
