Poll: Will Maryland Beat Memphis?

So it is Maryland-Memphis on Saturday. A fascinating matchup. I’m already fired up for it. I talked with the Memphis players for a while after the game. Roburt Sallie’s three-point barrage was the difference. Ten three-pointers helped the Tigers survive in the opening round against Cal State-Northridge.

Memphis has good size in Shawn Taggart and Robert Dozier. I will also be interested to see how Maryland guards Memphis reserve Pierre Henderson-Niles. Tyreke Evans had early foul trouble today and did not play his best game. The Tigers looked vulnerable, but they can and probably will play better. Will the Terps win this game?

C'mon don't be a hypocrite. You want them to fail. Your hack piece on GW make it abundantly clear.

TO be honest, I think the worst thing that could happen was for Northridge to embarrass Memphis by giving them a game. THey'll be ready for Maryland.

The Memphis offense is built around penetration. Tyreke Evans is no Derrick Rose, but he's bigger and stronger and whoever has to stop the penetration will have his hands full. Plus where Cal was a weak rebounding team, Memphis isn't.

Go Terps. You'll need your zone and possibly some divine help as well.

Memphis will absolutely obliterate them. Maryland should have been a 12 seed and they played a Cal team that lost 6 of 7 before today's game. Terps are the team that is overrated.

Let's get to the bottom line. The Washington Post doesn't like Gary Williams. You give this team to Coach K or Coach Williams (NC) and they don't make the tourney. Cold fact. You take one of the stars off of Duke or NC and put them on MD then they become an average ACC team and MD becomes a top ACC team. One player makes a huge difference. One Player such as a Gus Gilchrist who left MD to go to school in Florida. That was not a Gary fault and that one player would make a difference !!!! Leave Gary alone !!!!

If MD was a 12 seed they would've been a lock for the sweet 16. The 4s and 5s out there are straight garbage.

Here's a great commentary on Maryland-Memphis, and the reality of what Maryland is up against.
