The last segment in this five-part series will have an award-type feel to it. Not a whole lot of intro necessary ...

For the ten percent who say MD will make the tourney and win a game...what are you guys on? I want some.

We shouldn't even be invited to the ACC Tournament....

I don't know how you could argue about it. The Terps have played up (or down) to their ability. When they can't overcome their innate lack of inside strength, they usually lose. When the outside game is on and the guards play above their heads, the Terps frequently win.

A flawed squad in a deadly tough conference, that's the name of that tune.

This is a pretty ridiculous thing to say. Regardless of the Terps deficiencies they have two winable games in front of them that would bring them to 5-5 in ACC play. if they had hung on to win the BC game, FSU, or Miami they would be a in a pretty good position to to 8-8 or 9-7 in the league that would put them squarely on the bubble. As it is they should be at the very least able to make things interesting and outside of Wake, UNC, Duke, and Clemson there isn't a team in the ACC I would say the Terps are really overmatched against. 8-8 and two ACC tourney wins could get them in and then who knows. Nobody should be expecting the final four but to act like this team is the second coming of the LA Clippers is pretty absurd.

I wish they were. Then we'd have Baron Davis and Marcus Camby.

It's a really weak team, even by Maryland standards. Vasquez is a good player who might wind up a reliable pro (if not here, then in Europe). Milbourne is a good athlete and a worker. Sean Mosely is young and inexperienced but potentially the best of the lot.

Everybody else is a reserve on an ordinary Maryland team of the 90's. And I don't mean the sort of reserve who gets a lot of minutes, either.

Gary has them playing over their heads many nights. That's what a good coach is supposed to do, and he's doing it.

They're good enough to beat Miami at home and lose to them on the road. That's not a tournament team.

Maybe that's why Yow and Gary are fighting. It's easier than watching the games.
