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 now becomes: How does the team keep it up? That was a question Coach Gary Williams pondered Saturday in the moments following his team's 16-point victory over Boston College.
The Terrapins' victory was thorough, evident in the fact they never trailed, led by as many as 25 points and out-performed the Eagles in nearly every facet of the game. Up next is a date Tuesday with Longwood before resuming ACC play on Saturday against N.C. State at Comcast Center.
"The hardest thing is to maintain a level of play like that where you’re seeing everything," Williams said. "You see teams do that all the time. You see them one week and they look like the best team in the country and then two weeks later it’s, ‘What happened?’ It’s hard to keep that and that’s what we’re going to try to do. We’ve played three league games, we have 13 more and somehow we have to play like that. I think we’re developing confidence that if we do play like that then we have a chance against anybody. That’s the key thing, to believe in yourself that you can do that."
