Maryland Basketball Recruiting 2008: A Season of Blunders

May 26, 2008 |

On Thursday, May 23, just 38 days after committing to the Terps, sharp shooting off-guard Tyree Evans requested an official release from his Letter of Intent to play in College Park. Surprised? I’m not. Some background on Evans, he originally committed to Maryland with some baggage, to say the least. The 23-year-old guard from Richmond [...]

NIT

March 14, 2008 |

You absolutely have to go to the NIT. There has been some opinion by some fans that Maryland should not go to the NIT. I know it’s disappointing not getting into the NCAA Tournament, but you have to accept an NIT berth. It does not help recruiting, but it does help the kids who are [...]

NCAA Tournament Talk

I do question whether or not he’s still hungry, but how do you pull the plug on a man who’s built the expectations to [...]

The state of Maryland basketball

March 14, 2008 |

Now that Maryland has blown another double digit lead against a marginal opponent, melted down in the second half, fumbled the ball away (21 turnovers), lost in the first round of the ACC tournament for the second straight year (not third straight year as I had originally written) on their way to yet another NIT [...]

Terps tank is empty

March 11, 2008 |

Sunday nights have not been kind to the Terps men’s basketball team these past two weeks. After the second half meltdown at Comcast Center vs. Clemson last Sunday, Maryland had a week to rest, prepare and take their show on the road to UVA for the season finale. Scratch out a road win and they [...]
