Memphis Not Playing like a .500 ACC Team

Memphis played its best in the first half. The Tigers looked like a Final Four-caliber team in the first half. There was not much Maryland could do when the Tigers are lights out from three-point range.

The way Memphis is playing right now, I don't think there's a team in the country that could beat them.

damnit, stop running the press!!! It doesn't work against Memphis!

C'mon ya'll. The Terps are still in this thing. They've got Memphis right where they want 'em.

Talk about a bunch of fakey-fans and bandwagon jumpers.

Go Terps! I love them, and Gary!

"They've got Memphis right where they want 'em. " Yeah behind them with full penetration.

That's 12 points now that Memphis has gotten off the press!

I love my Terps! That being said, Memphis shot 8-11 beyond the arc in the first half. They are playing great basketball and the Turtles couldn't get anything to fall.

Not taking anything away from the Tigers, but Greivis needs to keep his mouth shut - two games (Duke 1 and Memphis) where he runs his yap - two blow-outs - and he doesn't do so well. Learn from your mistakes and let your game on the court do the talking!

Its not about what Grevis said before the game, the Tigers are a better squad and Gary needs to find blue chip recruits who are not controlled by the AAU pipeline(Good Luck with That!) that being stated still the Terps got farther than any of us had a right to expect,there's a team across town with blue chippers that tanked and a coach who doesn't have a clue.

This is why Gary needs to recruit better. They needed some horses to keep pace and we have no horses. And Grevis needs to just keep his mouth shut. His talking has NEVER done any good. That said, MD got further than any of us expected. Let's build on it.

Now there's nothing left but a Petecard-Barno cage match.

What a total rip-off. Those refs practically handed Memphis the win right from the get-go. How much did Memphis pay those coaches off to make it such a lop-sided game. I say the NCAA needs to investigate those refs, NOW!!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

With that said, FANTASTIC season by our Terps. They did the best they could and fought hard every game. They just didn't have the best talent.

Of course is that NO WAY reflective of the teams head coach and his recruiting skills (or lack thereof).

Go Terps!
Go Gary William!

#1 Team.

GW got what he could from this team. Here is a well deserved beatdown of Vazquez courtesy of Yahoo sports:

if the Venezuelan guard were half as good as he thought he was, the Terps wouldn't have been one of the last at-large teams in the NCAA tournament field.

But mere facts don't matter to Greivis. In his mind, the bounds of his greatness aren't constrained by a pesky won-loss record.
