Terps Kept Calling Hayes's Number

With five and a half minutes remaining yesterday afternoon, the Terps trailed by 13 and the game appeared to be unraveling rather quickly. Duke had just capped a 12-2 run. Maryland kept making costly mistakes.

And then the Terps ran a one-four low, a play in which the ball-handler (in this case, Eric Hayes) attacks the basket one-on-one against his defender. Hayes sank a jumper and Duke called a 30-second timeout.

On Maryland's next possession, the Terps called the play again, and again, Hayes hit a jump shot. He proceeded to score 15 of his team-high 20 points in the final five and a half minutes and helped pull the Terps to within four points of the lead.

Hayes made 9 of 13 shot attempts against the Blue Devils, including 2 of 5 from three-point range.

"I scored on the one play they called for me and after that bucket I kept scoring so they kept calling my number on that same play until it didn't work anymore," Hayes said. "And it worked a lot of times for us."

good thing it finally clicked for him. The first part of the game it seemed he was constantly turning the ball over with crappy passes and I was wondering what he was still doing out there on the floor

I think Hayes might even have suprised himself? He played great for the most part except for losing the ball a few times. Hopefully this is a breakthrough. The Terps need someone who can create a bucket other than Grevis.
