Morning links: Maryland overwhelms Longwood, as expected

By Matt Bonesteel

Good morning.

Maryland Coach Gary Williams passed legendary UCLA coach John Wooden for career victories in the Terrapins' 106-52 rout of Longwood on Wednesday night.

Saturday's game against Boston College is pretty much a must-win, but aren't they all at this point if the Terrapins want to make the NCAA tournament? The Eagles defeated Maryland at Comcast Center on Dec. 12 but have lost four of their last five. None of those losses were by less than 12 points.

Maryland ratings roundup

RPI: 82 (Jerry Palm)
SOS: 80 (Jerry Palm)
Ken Pomeroy: 17
Sagarin: 35

On the women's side, Kim Rodgers has developed into a clutch player for the 12th-ranked Terrapins, who visit No. 20 Miami tonight.

Elsewhere in the ACC, Duke rallied from 16 points down to beat North Carolina, 79-73.

UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp created a minor stir after Tweeting, "Our students are talking about the future and asking smart questions instead of wasting time sitting in a tent."

Miami's Reggie Johnson made two free throws with four seconds left as the Hurricanes snapped a 13-game ACC road losing streak with a 74-73 win over Wake Forest. Miami has won three straight (against the dregs of the ACC).

Wow, UNC imploded last night. Great comeback by Duke which is less loathsome to me than UNC.

Ok, I get why MP is sitting. Reminiscent of mouton beating out Miller, he's away behind Paulson who can play short 4 as well. Completely out of what I expected. HP seems to do a lot of things right. Suspect we'll remember him more fondly than NCM or Danny Miller....ok I don't recall either of those two fondly. Sixth man on the HS team and gets a scholarship on sight from GW?

Every game is critical from here on out, except any NIT games. I've never watched MD play an NIT game. Plan on watching them dancing at this point.

But Longwood is terrible.

What about 'Nova's last minute stumble at the Rac? That was way more surprising than the UNC/Duke game. Rutgers has no business winning that game, and that blown lead was pretty similar to the Terps gone in 54 seconds from 2001.

"Sixth man on the HS team and gets a scholarship on sight from GW?"

yep, if you recall a certain regular on here was very critical of Gary giving Paulson a scholarship, simply based on him being a 6th man (on a very elite high school team).
