Maryland defeats Georgia Tech, 76-74, on Tucker's buzzer-beater

Win No. 19 for the Maryland men's basketball team came in a much different fashion than any of the preceding 18 had this season. All those blowouts Maryland fans had witnessed their Terrapins conduct against ACC foes at Comcast Center...

Three things to watch: Milbourne, free throws, Vasquez

The Maryland men's basketball team will host Georgia Tech later this afternoon at Comcast Center. The Yellow Jackets have dropped three of their last five games, while the Terrapins have won four of their last five games. Both could use...

Quick hits from Comcast Center

Maryland Coach Gary Williams and a few players just got done meeting with reporters at Comcast Center in advance of tomorrow's contest against Georgia Tech. In light of the Terrapins' recent three-games-in-five-days stretch, Williams joking pointed to the relatively immense...

Scouting Georgia Tech

After being picked in the preseason ACC media poll to finish fourth in the conference this season, Georgia Tech has struggled to find the consistency necessary to maintain such a position in the league standings. The Yellow Jackets (18-8, 6-6),...

Maryland defense forces serious N.C. State drought

N.C. State put on a forgettable performance on offense during the second half of Wednesday night's game. During one stretch, the Wolfpack went scoreless for more than six minutes. N.C. State scored just twice from the field in the final...

Once up to speed, Maryland flourished in second half against Wolfpack

Senior guard Greivis Vasquez said the Terrapins grew "too comfortable" with the slow pace N.C. State dictated during the first half of Wednesday night's game. Part of that may have been because of Maryland's fatigue. Regardless, the Terrapins seemed out...

Jordan Williams 'on a fine line'

Maryland freshman forward Jordan Williams continues to impress during his inaugural ACC campaign. In conference play, Williams has averaged 9.4 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. That rebounding average ranks fourth in the ACC. And aside from his statistical production,...

Terps prove resiliency against N.C. State

A week ago today, the Maryland men's basketball team was switching gears and preparing for a road game at Duke after its game against Virginia -- originally scheduled for Feb. 10 -- was postponed because of severe winter weather. On...

Maryland earns 67-58 comeback win over N.C. State

The Terrapins were tired -- understandably -- and in the first half it showed. Maryland displayed levels of mental and physical fatigue previously unseen this season at the outset against N.C. State. And as bad as the Wolfpack might be,...

Three Terps earn ACC all-academic honors

Three members of the Maryland football team were named Wednesday to the 2009 ACC all-academic team. Junior punter Travis Baltz was so recognized for the third time in his career; only 11 players in ACC history have been named to...

Wait-and-see approach leads to Jerome Burney's return for Terrapins

One of the surprises from last Saturday that got somewhat buried, given the outcome of Maryland's performance at Duke, was that redshirt junior forward Jerome Burney was A) on the road trip, B) in uniform and C) participating in warmup...

Catching up with the Wolfpack

North Carolina State has dropped five straight ACC games since falling to Maryland by 24 points at Comcast Center on Jan. 23. The Wolfpack did sneak in a resounding win over North Carolina Central during that span, so at least...

Terps prefer 24-hour memory to get through stretch

Obviously, playing three games in five days -- as Maryland is in the midst of doing -- is not ideal. Throw in the fact the Terrapins have had to travel down and back to the state of North Carolina (twice)...

Maryland freshman forward Jordan Williams is somewhat difficult to miss, seeing as he's 6 feet 10 and all, but the Terrapins left Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday feeling as though they had not tried to get the ball inside to...

More on the hot start for Vasquez, Terps

With just less than 12 minutes remaining in the first half of Maryland's 19-point victory over Virginia on Monday night, senior guard Greivis Vasquez sank a jumper to put the Terrapins up by seven. At that point, Vasquez had tallied...

Redshirt junior forward Jerome Burney suited up, took part in warm-up drills and sat on the bench in uniform Saturday at Duke, which came as somewhat of a surprise considering the team issued a press release last fall stating that...

Maryland Coach Gary Williams took part in a conference call with reporters a short while ago, and it was clear he would prefer to erase any thoughts of yesterday's 21-point loss at Duke as quickly as possible. When asked how...
