Terrapins Insider: December 21, 2008 - December 27, 2008

Terps Win By 21 ... But It Wasn't Pretty

The good news for Maryland basketball fans is that their team got another win Saturday at Comcast Center. The Terps are now 9-2 and remain in good position to enter ACC play having won all the games they should have...

Another Big Man Down

Freshman forward Steve Goins walked out onto the court a few minutes ago dressed in black slacks and a red polo shirt, which, as you might guess, is not proper gameday attire. He also was sporting a black protective boot...

Scouting Bryant

The name of Maryland's next opponent might not strike fear into many Terps followers, but the Bulldogs' head coach just might. Tim O'Shea, in his first season at Bryant, spent the previous seven seasons at Ohio University. You all remember...

Baby Steps For Dupree

At this point, nearly everything is relative for Braxton Dupree. He played 10 minutes during Monday night's win over American, which, relatively speaking, was a breakthrough for the sophomore forward. He shot 2-of-3 from the field and tallied five points...

An Early Stocking Stuffer

After yet another early-season victory, the positive vibes were flowing from the Maryland locker room Monday night. And why shouldn't they be? After defeating American and avenging a loss that dampened the Terps' Christmas spirit last season, the team stands...

The Big Men (Part 2)

The other half of Maryland's starting frontcourt tandem is senior Dave Neal. Unlike Landon Milbourne, Neal was not expected to provide major minutes for the Terps at the outset of this season. He'd been plagued by injuries throughout his first...

The Big Men (Part 1)

Today, I'm going to take a look at Maryland's two starting post players -- senior Dave Neal and junior Landon Milbourne. The former was expected to, at best, come off the bench and be a serviceable reserve for 10-15 minutes...

Rotation Talk

Very few teams enter the season knowing with complete confidence who their starting five will be, and even fewer keep that starting five intact throughout the first few months of the season. Coaches like to mix things up, to see...

Another Encouraging Performance By Tucker

Cliff Tucker now has turned in two solid showings in a row, certainly a welcome development for Gary Williams and the rest of the Terps. Tucker played 17 minutes and was one of the first two subs off the bench...

Doing Well Without Doing Well

Greivis Vasquez and Eric Hayes are the rocks of this team. You know what you're going to get from them on most nights, which typically is steady play that paces the Terps one way or another. Last night, Vasquez and...

Terps Knock Off American, 67-51

You all sure know how to pick 'em. At last check, 51 percent of those of you who took part in the Terps Insider poll earlier today said Maryland would beat American by 10-20 points, and you were dead on....

The Showdown Is Upon Us

It's nearly time for the big rematch you've all eagerly been waiting for. After a 10-day hiatus, the Terps will return to the hardwood tonight at 7:45 to take on American at Comcast Center. Last season, the Eagles contributed to...

Scouting American

It's safe to say this is not the same, fiesty American squad that knocked off Maryland around this time last season. At 5-5, the Eagles have been going through a bit of a rough stretch lately. They've played all but...
