Final predictions

I could see Maryland winning this game Saturday against Boston College. The Eagles have turnover issues. It's the last game for Maryland's seniors. But I just can't bring myself to pick the Terrapins. The quarterback situation remains unsettled. I'm 8-3...

Scouting Wisconsin

Wisconsin is a squad built on control. The Badgers are not interested in turning games into track meets. They do not operate with any sort of run-and-gun mentality. Rather, Wisconsin prefers to slow the game to a grinding halt and...

Paging Landon Milbourne

Maryland falls to Cincinnati, 69-57, in first loss of season

No. 21 Maryland was able to fluster Cincinnati with its full-court press for a while in the second half, long enough to close the deficit at one point to seven points. But the Bearcats showed more discipline and maturity than...

In an interview with reporters today, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley said he "would hope (the University of Maryland) would not use public funds to buy out the contract" of Terrapins football coach Ralph Friedgen. O'Malley also said neither he nor...

Scouting Cincinnati

Cincinnati obtained its first marquee win of the season Monday when the Bearcats prevailed over No. 24 Vanderbilt, 67-58. Under fourth-year coach Mick Cronin, Cincinnati has been built on a foundation of athleticism, aggression and physicality. At times, those base...

An alternative look at Vasquez's shooting woes

Maryland pushes past Chaminade, 79-51

Another game, another sizable Maryland victory. The final score would indicate the game was a breeze, that the Terrapins asserted their dominance over an inferior Chaminade squad. And throughout the second half, that was most certainly the case. Maryland shot...

Aloha from the beautiful state of Hawaii. Later today, No. 25 Maryland will take on Chaminade in the first round of the Maui Invitational. Chaminade, as you may know, is the Division II program that serves as the host of...
