And Then The Lightbulb Went Off
For any of you still trying to figure out how exactly Maryland departed Florida on Saturday night without a single win to show for two tightly-contested road games, the answer is simple. The Terps didn't shoot the ball well against either Miami or Florida State, and as a result, the ball didn't travel through the net, and if that doesn't happen as many times as it does for the other team ... well, we'll let Gary Williams explain ...
"I thought we did everything pretty well on the road except make shots, and you know, the way the game was invented, you get points when the ball goes through the rim," Williams said earlier today. "We weren't able to do that, and so we lost two tough games. But you know, three out of 13 games is what we've played so far. And I'd like to think we're a pretty good road team, but time will tell."
The Terps are shooting 41.7 percent from the field overall (worst in the ACC) and 37.5 percent from the field in ACC play. As for three-point shooting, they're shooting 31.3 percent overall (second-worst in the ACC) and 25.8 percent in conference play.
Maryland's last three opponents, on the other hand, shot 41.6 percent from the field and 34.4 percent from three-point range, which isn't all that great, but, if you'll notice, is better than the Terps' numbers. And by now, we all know what that means.
