Terps To Take Part in 2011 Puerto Rico Tip-Off

By Liz Clarke

This time next year, Maryland will be getting ready to head to Puerto Rico for its early-season men's basketball tournament.

The Terrapins are among seven of the eight schools announced Wednesday as scheduled to take part in the 2011 Honda Puerto Rico Tip-Off Nov. 17-20 at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico.

Maryland will join Alabama, Colorado, Iona, Wichita State, Purdue and Temple, with an eighth school to be named later.

The bracket-format tournament will feature 12 games over three days, with each team competing in one game each day. The two teams that remain undefeated throughout will face off in a championship match Nov. 20.

The tournament is owned and operated by ESPN Regional Television Inc., a subsidiary of ESPN. Ticket and travel information is available at www.puertoricotipoff.com.

Only see two possible challenges from either Temple or Purdue. Would love to go to PR for the holidays, though...

CC proved a tough test, but thanks to a big shot from PeShon we were able to overcome our 28% from the line... we have to shoot FTs better than that and stop turning the ball over in key moments. Both of those are obvious and easier said than done, but if we're going to compete in the ACC we've got to step it up.

I've been really disappointed in Bowie, who obviously should be at the 2, but also Mosley who is providing absolutely nothing on the offensive end.


Also, where is Mychal Parker? I'm very discouraged by his lack of playing time... he seemed a bit sluggish against Seattle, but that just might be a style thing (a la T-Mac), as he did have an incredible cross and slam late in the game which looked pretty effortless.

Puerto Rico has always been the red-headed stepchild of the pre-season tournaments. With that field, I don't see that big of a change. It seems that the other big pre-season tournaments (Maui, NIT, Coaches vs Cancer, Jimmy V, and Old Spice), and Gary didn't want to let his exempted tournament wait until the following year. Looking at this team right now, Temple and Purdue would be the only obstacles in capturing that tournament's title, but it's still a LONG way off.
