Burney Suits Up

Sophomore forward Jerome Burney, who has been out with a stress fracture in his foot since early December, is currently on the court at Cameron Indoor Stadium warming up with the rest of the Terps. Burney is in uniform and appears ready to return to action.

Whether he'll play largely will be determined on how today's game against Duke progresses, specifically in regard to the battle in the post. The Blue Devils offer 7-foot-1 center Brian Zoubek, as well as 6-foot-8 reserve forward Lance Thomas, as their main obstacles down low. Burney might come in handy depth-wise should one of Maryland's other big men struggle defensively or get into foul trouble.

Burney's return means the Terps now are at full health for the first time in well over a month.

This is an "Eric Hayes" ACC road don't expect to win!

In this case, no pressure. We can have fun watching the game because we expect to lose...probably by a blow-out.

Should I make my lunch reservation at 12:45 or 1:00? :)

If Gary has no desire to recruit in the ACC its time for retirement:)

It's a final from Cameron Indoor Arena: Duke 85, Terps 41. Unfortunately, the score was indicative of the margin of loss.

Duke outclassed and outplayed the Terps for virtually the entire game. They devestated the Terps on the offensive boards, making many 2nd attempts. They also shot very well from beyond the arc (48%).

A bright light was Landon Milbourne who led the Terps in several offensive categories. Another positive was the gutsy play of the reserves. So Joon Kim was particularly gritty with several steal attempts late in the contest.

Let's hope the Terps can learn from their humiliation. (Duke continued to make 3pt. attempts even after building a 40pt. lead late in the game.) They won't have much time to lick their wounds. BC comes to town on Tuesday night.

Play harder; play smarter! Go Terps!!

Looked as if Duke had divine help - they couldn't miss a shot and the Terps couldn't make one. That's our team: can't shoot, can't rebound. How did our brave lads ever beat Michigan and Michigan State? Or American U and GW for that matter?

Must be something in College Park water that condemns Terrapin teams to such performances.

No matter. The NIT may well be out of reach. The UMd leadership might consider leaving the ACC and joining the Colonial conference.

That was hard to watch. I've been a Terps fan for 40 years through high and low. The loss to Duke in the Final Four was bad, but this was cataclysmic. I like these kids but they don't stand a chance against the big boys in the ACC. Gary's been talking about next year but they aren't going to be a lot better then.

Get rid of Yow so that Gary can get the players he needs (Maze, Gilchrist and Evans would have made a real difference this year) or get a new coach who can figure out how to deal with that blue nosed bible thumper.

Ah, Debbie Yow is responsible? Wow, I'm interested in your logic on this

You need to stake a better claim than that. How come other coaches at the university are attracting top-notch talent and top ten recruiting classes?

The soccer team, the field hockey team, and the women's basketball team have won national championships under Yow's tenure.

Sorry, but the failure of this team falls at feet with the coach.

estockto, you are a sick person.

FYI, the sister of the "blue nosed Bible thumper" you detest so much died this morning.
