Maryland loses to Virginia Tech: The morning after
Maryland started Thursday night's game against Virginia Tech in a 12-0 hole, and it got no better from there in a 74-57 loss. Said Coach Gary Williams afterward: "You wonder where that comes from. Hopefully that's a one-game thing, because the games we lost before weren't like that."
Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney riled up the Comcast Center crowd with his comments that Maryland "might have the worst fans ever." He then fed off the crowd's hate on his way to a 19-point, seven-assist outing. The fans "just made me play better. They don't realize that," Delaney said. "They can talk as much as they want. I already expected it."
Delaney tells the Roanoke Times: "That was one of the most fun games I've had since I've been here."
Over at The 68, Eric Prisbell looks at what Thursday night's loss means to Maryland's NCAA tournament chances, along with a poll asking readers if the Terrapins will make the tournament. Here's a hint: there isn't much room for error now.
Patrick Stevens of D1scourse.com writes about how Thursday night's loss was the worst ever at Comcast Center for the Terrapins. When told of that fact, Virginia Tech's Jeff Allen said, "That makes me happy."
