Terps Fall to Duke, 78-67

Maryland certainly put up much more of a fight against the Blue Devils this time around, but Duke pulled away late thanks to some timely three-point shooting and solid play from Gerald Henderson. The Terps were not distraught or downtrodden...

Terps In Search Of Better Mental Approach

Prior to Saturday's game against North Carolina, senior forward Dave Neal relayed something Gary Williams had told the Terps during practice that week: "We are one of the luckiest teams in the country," Neal said. The reason, presumably, was that...

Dealing With 'An NBA Frontline'

Together, Tyler Hansbrough (6-foot-9, 250 lbs.) and Deon Thompson (6-foot-8, 245 lbs.) form a pretty formidable frontcourt tandem for North Carolina -- one that typically draws some extra attention from opposing defenses. But according to Gary Williams, Maryland's plan yesterday...
