Maryland's arrival, halfcourt shots and an unknown opponent
The Maryland men's basketball team strolled into Greensboro Coliseum around 6 p.m. Wednesday evening, about an hour before their scheduled open workout. The Terrapins already had practiced earlier in the day before leaving College Park, so -- like nearly every other ACC team that practiced today -- they took it pretty easy on the court here. Players fired shots leisurely at both ends of the court. Free throw contests involved Coach Gary Williams and several assistants. Everyone seemed to be relaxed and enjoying themselves.
After about 40 minutes, the players huddled at midcourt. When they broke away, senior guard Greivis Vasquez took a few steps, yelled, "Let's go home, baby!", fired a halfcourt shot and watched it bank in off the glass.
As for what's on tap tomorrow, junior guard Adrian Bowie said the team will go through its typical day-before-game routine. The only difference, of course, will be that they Terrapins don't know which team they'll face Friday night in the ACC quarterfinals. The possible candidates are Georgia Tech and North Carolina. Bowie said Maryland will prepare for both, going over each squad's offensive and defensive tendencies.
"It's not completely different because they both have great big men, and they're an up-tempo type of team," Bowie said. "It's not that much of a difference. It's just that their personnel is different."
