Terrapins Insider: January 17, 2010 - January 23, 2010

Maryland tosses aside N.C. State, 88-64

This has been quite an impressive two-week stretch for the Maryland men's basketball team. First came a win over a physically imposing -- and ranked -- Florida State squad. Then the Terrapins took Wake Forest to overtime on the road....

Three things to watch

Later this evening, Maryland will host N.C. State at Comcast Center in a match-up that will feature two teams playing pretty well right now. The Terrapins got off to a promising start to ACC play last week with encouraging showings...

Scouting N.C. State

However you felt about North Carolina State's prospects at the beginning of the week, those thoughts likely were altered by the Wolfpack's performance Wednesday night in a 14-point win over No. 7 Duke. The victory stands as the seminal moment...

Should the NCAA tournament expand to 96?

Maryland discards Longwood, 106-55

You can be forgiven if you were at tonight's game and left at halftime. Or midway through the first half. Or after the first media timeout. Maryland dominated Longwood from start to finish. It's the outcome that should have been...

Three things to watch

Later this evening, Maryland will host Longwood in its final non-conference game of the regular season. The Lancers do not seem likely to pose much of a challenge to the Terrapins, but as Coach Gary Williams pointed out Monday, that's...

One week in, some thoughts on the ACC

In a development that I'm sure everyone saw coming, Virginia stands alone atop the Atlantic Coast Conference standings after one week of conferece play. The Cavaliers, led by first-year Coach Tony Bennett, are the only ACC team left undefeated in...

Establishing 'physical presence' necessitates a few extra fouls

Foul trouble has been a bit of an issue for Maryland in its past two games. At Wake Forest, the Terrapins were whistled for 20 fouls, though two of those came in the overtime period. At Boston College, Maryland was...

How the Terps plan to approach Longwood game

One of the primary challenges for Maryland posed by tonight's match-up against Longwood will be maintaining focus. This is not to say that the Terrapins are an unfocussed bunch. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Maryland -- and most other...

Why Longwood game is important for Gregory, Padgett

Confidence is a big theme around College Park these days. Junior reserve guards Cliff Tucker and Adrian Bowie possess it after encouraging performances Saturday during Maryland's 16-point win at Boston College. Heck, the Terrapins (11-5, 2-1) as a group own...

G. Williams's three keys to winning on the road

One item of particular note after one week of ACC play is that two of Maryland's three conference games were played on the road and the Terrapins performed well in both away contests. Maryland took Wake Forest to overtime in...

Scouting Longwood

Tomorrow night, Maryland will take a brief hiatus from its conference slate to host Longwood at Comcast Center. The Lancers are 4-14 as they continue to play as one of a select few teams in the country without a conference...

Next challenge for Terps: Maintaining current level of play

Maryland has won three of its last four games and played pretty well in each contest. The one loss came in overtime at Wake Forest, and even then, the Terrapins had opportunities to come away victorious. And so the challenge...

Fueling the fast break

As has already been mentioned several times, Maryland owned a serious advantage in fast break points (20-4) during Saturday's win over Boston College, and this came despite the fact that the Terrapins were out-rebounded, 40-28*. While the Eagles' sluggish effort...

Maryland, B.C. polar opposites in terms of effort

Saturday's game already was well out of hand by the time Boston College forward Tyler Roche drove to the basket with just less than five minutes remaining. Maryland led by 19, and Roche went in search of an easy bucket...
