Houston's Coleman an accurate shooter, stomper

Houston senior guard Aubrey Coleman led the nation in scoring (25.6 points per game) this season while shooting 42.5 percent from the field. Coleman took 31.4 percent of Houston's shot attempts. In fact, he shot the ball 269 more times than senior guard Kelvin Lewis, who ranked second on the team in shot attempts.

So, it appears fair to say he'll be a focal point of Houston's offense on Friday when the Cougars take on Maryland in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

As for how to defend Coleman, well, trying to draw a charge on him might seem like a good idea in theory ...

... but maybe not necessarily a good idea in practice.

ok, even that embodiment of all that is wrong with college basketball - Christian Laettner - had the decency to step on a guys gut as opposed to the face.

Shut this f*er down and beat Houston. Go Terps.

Wow, Budinger is such a dick! Can't believe he made poor little Aubrey Coleman almost turn an ankle tripping over his face.

hey yanda i thought moses abraham was supposed to choose between georgetown and maryland yesterday(even though maryland never offered him). i havent seen anything about his commitment on any major recruiting sites. was there anything accurate in that article. when he does commit are you going to admit your error and apologize to gary or you going to continue to kiss the *** of the scumbag handlers of high school basketball players that gary doesnt play ball with.

hey yanda i thought moses abraham was supposed to announce his decision between georgetown and maryland(even though maryland never offered him a scholarship). i dont see where he commited on any major recruiting sites. was there anything accurate in that article. when are you going to stop bashing gary for not playing ball with these handlers of high school basketball players. oh and by the way jordan williams seems like a pretty good recuit this year, stop bashing gary and the terps and get a new job,

Yeah, I'd love to see him try that on Grievis.

Or maybe not...GV might react a lot more quickly and, uh, forcefully than Chase Budinger...

The Terps playing against the nation's leading scorer isn't necessarily a bad thing. Every year, the top scorers in NCAA D1 are almost uniformly from bad teams; the Cougs might show some fight, but if you finish the regular season 15-15 in CUSA, you're probably pretty terrible.

I'm also presuming (hoping) that Tom Penders will stick with his usual approach and try to run a high-tempo game - no way they can run the floor at full speed with our guys for 40 minutes. Go Terps.

Anybody know what time the game would be on Sunday if we can get by Houston? I'm on a flight until 2 but I figured it would be later than that because they're on the west coast and have the late game Friday night.. Much Thanks

Who is going to guard Gary Coleman? I say we set Mosely loose on him. Just a guess that nobody from Baltimore will get his face stomped on by Gary Coleman

Word on Moses Abraham is that Maryland didn't tender an offer. He didn't announce yesterday, but he is now considering either Georgetown or Indiana.
