Terrapins' ACC tournament hopes hinge on defense, desire

By Liz Clarke

No team has won four consecutive ACC tournament games since the conference expanded to 12 teams in 2005-06, but that’s the only option left for Maryland (18-13, 7-9) if the Terrapins are to qualify for the NCAA tournament after squandering any shot at an at-large bid by closing the regular season on a three-game losing skid.

Maryland didn’t win more than three conference games in succession during the season, defeating Clemson at Comcast Center and Virginia and Georgia Tech on the road in late January. Since then, they haven’t won more than two games in a row.

But tournaments don’t necessarily follow the script or the seeding, as freshman guard Pe’Shon Howard points out.

“One thing about the ACC tournament, everybody’s starting zero-zero,” Howard noted after Saturday's 74-60 loss to Virginia. “You look at the women’s [ACC] tournament or any other tournament. Things don’t go the way that the seeding says. We’ve just got to be positive, stay together and don’t listen to anybody else.”

Don’t be surprised if Coach Gary Williams tinkers with his lineup for Thursday’s ACC opener against N.C. State, one of six ACC opponents that Maryland beat during the regular season. Clearly disappointed by his team’s lack of intensity down the stretch, Williams said he’d evaluate this week’s practice sessions with an open mind, looking for “the right guys” to represent the Terrapins in their improbable pursuit.

The most meaningful thing Maryland can do to improve its chances of a deep run in the tournament is toughen up on defense.

While the Terrapins held opponents to 40.4 percent shooting from the field this season, they equaled or bettered that mark only once in the last seven games (a stretch in which they lost five of seven). That was in their 87-76 loss at North Carolina, in which they held the Heels to 40 percent shooting.

Three days later, Maryland let Miami shoot 54.9 percent. And in Saturday’s regular season finale at Comcast Center, they let Virginia shoot 44.1 percent.

Here’s a recap of how opposing offenses fared against Maryland in the Terrapins’ last seven games:

At Boston College, L, 72-76 – 48.2 percent from the field

At Virginia Tech, L, 83-91 - 45.3 percent

N.C. State, W, 87-80 – 49.2 percent

Florida State, W, 78-62 - 43.4 percent

At North Carolina, L, 76-87 – 40 percent

At Miami, L, 66-80 – 54.9 percent

Virginia, L, 60-74 – 44.1 percent

As freshmen Terrell Stoglin sized it up, Maryland’s defensive shortcomings weren’t so much the result of tactical failings as they were failings of effort — or, as he put it following the loss to Virginia, “not wanting to get after it on the defense end.”

“Coach Williams is doing a great job,” Stoglin said. “We just have got to want it ourselves. I mean, he can’t want it more than us. And he has been wanting it more than us! So we’ve just got to fix that.”

What do you think? Are Maryland's problems correctable? Do you have any hope for a run to the ACC tournament title? The floor is now yours.

Let's hope GW "tinkers" enough to have the Terps put the ball in the hole instead of miss, miss, clank off the rim for five or more minutes of the game.

Defense, Deefense... we need stinkin' offense!

Go Terps!

Umm no. It is not happening. Though Stoglin has stepped up and it seems Gary has figured out that Tucker has no business on an ACC court, the Terps simply are not good enough shooters or ball handlers to win this. They should beat NC State, and they could do well in the NIT depending on the draw. They may even host a game.

Next year the future is bright for this team. Hopefully Mosely gets rid of whatever ailed him this year, but even if he doesn't the young and new terps should be just fine. Gary will game plan with his new group of starters how to get the ball inside against the press. Actually he already has that playbook, he just didnt have Juan Dixon or Steve Blake to get the job done. Next year with Stoglin and Howard experienced, and super frosh Faust talented, the terps should be poised to make some serious noise. Top 2 or 3 in the ACC and a threat to get past the sweet 16 for the first time in since the NC.

So apparently in rdondero's mind, proposing a bet to me of 2 friedgen pajama tops that Gary Williams will be fired after this season is the same as us actually agreeing on a bet that Gary won't make the tournament.

You come across some nutcases on the internet from time to time but this rdondero character might take the cake.

Barring some magic dust which will make this team shoot well, I don't see us going past the second round against Duke.

I am looking forward to next year, though. Stoglin and Howard could develop into another great guard tandem like Dixon/Blake or Vasquez/Hayes. I see JW staying at least one more year beofre heading to the NBA. The new talent coming in looks real good on paper; we'll see if they learn under Gary's system. Finally, we'll also be rid of the senior "leadership" on this team. I hate rebuilding years, but I'm optimistic about the future.

The problem is playing a fresh Duke team that hasn't played in 6 days when we are playing on less than 24 hours rest. It's tough, especially since we aren't an especially deep team. Weijs, Paulson, Padgett, and Parker better be ready because the bench will see a lot of PT down in Greensboro if we're going to make any kind of run.

Posted by: Barno1 | March 8, 2011 2:47 PM | Report abuse

It's really great to hear all of the experienced insight from Pe'Shon Howard and Terrell Stoglin, our FRESHMAN point guards. Howard's comments are laughable and Stog's comments are cryable. Don't worry, everything starts fresh in a single elimination tournament. We can't lose two in a row! We get Duke after game one unless we don't make an effort to play defense against NCS. It's not Gary's fault the the players he recruited and coached all year just don't want to play defense. It's perfectly normal as post season play begins to be tinkering with the line up and rotation. All is well. All is well.

Duke Rulz,,,now you see why some of us feel Lefty is the true HOF'r from MD. Check out Gary's success at Ohio St., it will remind you of something, i.e. the past 8 years here.

Posted by: cm88 | March 8, 2011 3:38 PM | Report abuse

Poop, not really understanding your posts of late either. Why keep baiting MD fans? You weren't doing this a few weeks ago when our chances at the tourney were in better shape. But now that we are very likely headed to the NIT, you are in full "mock Gary and MD fans" mode. Would you be doing this if we had finished the season on a nice win streak? I highly doubt it.

I know you see CM88 and Petecard making total *sses of themselves on here lately and want to support them against the FOGs but what is the point? I don't think you're nearly as big a Gary-hater as they are...my guess is deep down you're probably a FOG too but just want things to be more like they were when we were in school, with sweet 16s being the norm. The game has changed tho Poop. You have to at least acknowledge that...there are many more competitive D1 programs than there were 10-20 years ago and it's no longer reasonable to expect 11-year consecutive NCAA tourney streaks. There's going to be years like this year where we have to rebuild and take our lumps. We HAVE made the tourney 3 of the last 4 years and 2 of those 3 years we have exceptional regular seasons.

We were not a horrible team this year by any strech, we are actually pretty damn close to being a very good team. We saw what we were capable of in long stretches against Villanova, Duke, Pittsburgh etc...we just need to grow and gain a little more experience, and next year I firmly believe this team will be a top 25 team...and we'll all be getting along again. Just be patient.

I'm most disappointed that the season is over because I can no longer read people's gay text messages on Comcast.

I have to agree with Barno - the team wasn't horrible. We finished with a winning record. A trip to the NIT will give the younger players a chance to get more experience as they mature for next year. Go Terps.

Posted by: cm88 | March 8, 2011 3:38 PM


Sorry cm88 to disagree with you. Lefty was a GREAT recruiter, but he made quite a few tactical blunders in close games. My recollections of Lefty were watching him burn timeouts early in big losses, never having a deep rotation (which cost him dearly in tournaments), and coming up short. He was entertaining and exciting, and you could not miss him in the Roy Rogers in the student union. and i think he's a great coach. the second greatest in MD history. Now when you add the Davidson years, his record is closer to GW's, but still no NC, no FFs.

GW has two FFs and a NC. Trumps all.

Barno, Howard's comment was harmless which is why I called it laughable. Stog's comment was staggering in its honesty. I would hope that the WaPo staff would refrain from using quotes that make the players look so naive. And I would hope that someone on the coaching staff helps them understand how these comments simply shouldn't be made. Do you think a Duke player would make comments like these and not get some help from the coaches about the impact?

Posted by: petecard | March 8, 2011 4:27 PM | Report abuse

Oh boy, here come all the wait until next years and excuses for Gary, and these guys expect NC's every year excuses. Sorry we never said that, but you losers are ok with 4 NIT's in 8 years, sorry we arent as big of losers as you guys are.

How did I know this was coming when your predictions earlier this year of Gary's greatness of taking us to the NCAA's and we are all idiots turned out to be wrong.

Now your pitch is that the NIT is ok and a learning experience and just wait until next year you Garyhater losers...pathetic you cant see this is a trend. 4th in 8 years guys. It must be a miserable existance to always except failure and to hope for average success, congrats to you Section, TerpfanMA, and Barno.

Duke Rulz, I understand your view, but if you look at the time, Lefty had to compete when only 1 ACC team went to the NCAA's, so his best team, which is probably the greatest MD team ever, didnt even go to the NCAA's. Gary was great with one group of guys, Lefty kept bringing in great players and also went deep with multiple teams, you are talking one team/group with those stats. I have had this debate before and both have their stengths when it comes to # of sweet 16's, elite 8's, ACC champ's, etc. But if you put Lefty in todays era, with 68 teams going, his ability to recruit, etc., I think its a no-brainer. Just my opinion, which we all know is crazy :) haha

Any Maryland fan for the last 35 years would agree that although we all loved the left hander, he was a better recruiter than head coach..In this age of college basketball, Lefty probably would go after the one and done type of players..Gary doesn't.. There is nothing wrong with that..Is this a 'down' year for the Terps B-Ball program, it all depends on one's expectations??? Could have been alot better if Tucker and Bowie stepped up their game.. They didn't.. So we all have to look at next year, it does look promising... As for the ACC tourney, I would leave Tucker, Bowie and Mosely on the bench, and start Stoglin, Howard, and Hawk in their place...The upperclassmen want to pout, so ,leave them on the bench.. Is the NIT a disappointment for this year, YES, but it could also be a springboard for better things in the future... Remember back in the early 70's!!! How did that work?? How quickly people forget... Go Terps !!!!

Now I am starting to wonder if you went to college at all....since your hate for Gary is rooted in his personality, I am just curious how it must feel to carry all this bitterness around in you for 20+ years.....perhaps it is a cathartic event to finally let it out which is why you take so much pleasure in posting and reposting your lame attacks

Sec5 -

Maybe I'm not as much of a MD fan. I am a Duke fan first, MD second, and UNC dead last and after even UNLV and Cheathoun at Uconn. But I am a Terp fan and root for the program to succeed whenever they are NOT playing Duke.

If the terps were to beat Duke in game 2 this weekend, then of course I would root for the Terps to win it all.

But it is called the "Duke Invitational" for a reason.

MD went to plenty of NITs back when they counted for something under Lefty and did not win any of those either.

My bad on the 1972 NIT.

Really? You hate Mike K. worse than Roy Williams? How is it that Duke is more odious than UNC? Are we far more odious or only slightly more odious?

I see the Terps returning to form next season. TS is the type of player that can carry a program far. JW is proven, and I suspect his assists will shoot up next year as he learns how to pass out of double teams to the open man (and the open man than actually hits the open shot). But the boxing out has to improve on the entire team. DG does not do a great job of boxing out even as a senior.

for the ACCT, all teams must to go deep into the roster. Looking forward to seeing BW, MP, and others getting quality minutes, with CT and SM seeing spot duty.

We'll see you friday.

Absolutey unrelated question but just read that Ohio State FB coach has been suspended 2 games and fined $250K by his school for failure to advise them of obvious NCAA violations by his players. So is the NCAA investigating this or will they be happy to sweep this under the carpet to protect Ohio State? I can't help believe that if this was a "lesser" school that the hammer would have fallen hard on them already.

So I finally changed my handle - verbatim from one of the suggestions from the board. So the season has been disappointing - dropping the last few games after UNC was appalling. Going from 9-7 to 7-9 changed the outlook substantially. But they have to win the next game. Then worry about anything else. We have been talking about the need to be able to dip deeeep into the bench - especially for game 2. On that note, BW adds size and shotblocking.

Am optimistic about next year, but I think the debates on GW's age have begun to get to me. He looks relatively young, but someone else has posted that he is 66.

I hope he gets to go out on his own terms. Retire at the end of a season with no farewell tour. For all of the animosity on the board b/w HOGs and FOGs, we gotta face that GW is probably a limited time offer that expires in a few years anyways. I cannot imagine him wanting to continue coaching when he is 70.

I was in grad school in the early 90s with Duke-drulz when Duke was the reigning two-time NC. We would watch college BB and I would have to figure out WHO to root for because MD was not playing any games of consequence. Joe Smith changed everything. GW sticking with the program made it happen. NCAAs EVERY year became the norm. So yeah, maybe its living in the past but I never, ever thought MD would win a NC (maybe even less so after the FF meltdown against Duke). But I was re-addicted during the Joe Smith freshman season. Kind of like what RF did for the FB program.

I was in summer session when LB died, I knew too many of the cast of characters on a personal level and was briefly questioned by the police and most of the lead characters on a "how you doin' shor-tee" level. For years, it was the first and only thing people would bring up when they found out that I had went to MD.

But college BB fans would always point out - GW is a great coach and MD will be back (DukeDrulz was one of them, but he just wanted them to come back and beat UNC). He won at BC when the Big East was dominant and BC a mere afterthought for recruits.

So I am disappointed about this season, but optimistic for next season, and glad that I got to enjoy last season with the likes of y'all on this board.

And yes I'm hoping against hope for four wins this weekend. unlikely, improbable but still hoping.

Hgr, great to hear from you and your new handle is a good fit for who you are on the board. As you know I do not share your optimism for next year (big surprise), but that doesn't mean we can't all be hopeful. I'm not even going to watch the ACC Tourney until the weekend. My enthusiasm is shot. But I will be running my 12th annual Pete's NCAA Basketball Pool for family and friends from around the country. We will have more than 80 players this year. It's all done by Excel spreadsheet. None of that commercial garbage from ESPN , CBS, etc. Great fun even when the Terps stay home.

Actually, it was more of a case of John Thompson spreading the word around the Baltimore HS's that no black kid should go to Maryland because the basketball program and the University were racist.

It took the program a long time to get over it. I believe it was Keith Booth coming to MD that broke the ice.

A very good friend of mine whose Dad played basketball at MD has talked about this for years. One of the main reasons I Friggin' hate G-Town.

terps half court offense is terrible, and will be til jw learns to pass out of the double team and we hit some threes as a result. until then, they have to rely on the defense to generate easy chances.

Once again, BARNO and SECTION looking like idiots and making up stuff. When did I say I dont support the team, I have supported the team for a much longer time than either of you when I went to games at Cole, etc. I am still here supporting the team, not the coach, but the team and the players.

Stop making up stuff just because every argument or point has ended up being wrong. You think just because you went to MD you are better fans or real fans, actually you are less of fans because of your blind loyalty to the coach instead of the team. Sounds like guys that would love Dan Snyder instead of the Skins, pathetic.

Keep focusing on next year and hoping for a miracle by Gary. I am hoping the kids/players step up and carry the team,,and Gary.

So we are talking about the Terps, so the fact that I dont watch the Wiz because I have never been a huge fan and especially since they are terrible, makes me not a supporter of the terps?

Or that I dont want to spend hundreds of dollars to go to a game that is a bad product due to Gary Williams, I am not a supporter? Even though, I watch every game and when they are competitive, I spend the money to go watch them at the ACC tourn, etc....yeah I am not a fan, you are a moron.

Oh, since I support the Caps, I am not a fan of MD basketball???

How about the fact that I am a Skins fan, but I dont waste the money to go see them since they offer a terrible product, guess that makes me a fair weather fan???

You really are an idiot!! I have mentioned 100's of times that I am a huge MD fan and thats about it when it comes to being crazy about a team,,,but I guess you are only a fan if you waste your money to go watch Gary, like you :)

Barno, c'mon. You can't possibly be suggesting that my watching a game on TV from NY will support the Terps. Exactly how would that be the case? I'm not rooting for them to lose. You always seem to be evaluating the fandom of everyone who comments on TI. It really gets tedious. I don't have to defend my love for Maryland. In fact, the regulars on this site, whether they agree with me or not, would characterize me in two ways. First I am honest about how I feel. Second, I care deeply and show my frustration with where the program has been and where it is. I am also consistent in my criticisms. And clearly I don't drink the Kool-aid. But the last thing you can call me on is for failing to support the team by not watching on TV. Now that's funny!

Petecard, the kid has lost every argument/debate on here, so now he is trying to say we arent fans again. Its commical...I dont and wont waste my money on any team/player, etc., if it is not a good product, that makes me a smart fan, not a blind moron that rewards failure.

Its exactly why long time Skins fans are cancelling their season tickets, they dont want to keep rewarding the owner for bad moves.

Its exactly why long time Terp fans are cancelling their season tickets and VIP Boxes, they dont want to financially support a coach that is lazy and producing a subpar product.

This is useless, BARNO is not capable of understand basic financial or business decisions, he sees Gary and gets all light headed and it ends there.

Section, when you add onto a comment that your boyfriend Barno makes about fair weather fans, that states us, you are then coming at us, so I will get my panties unbunched, once you stop sniffing Barnos...deal???

You know what is really ironic, not only has CM88 lost every single argument he has ever tried to make on this blog, but he has also been the one to more often than anyone else say others are not "real fans" and that he is a bigger fan than anyone else. Then he whines about others questioning his fandom. Ah, apparently the irony is totally lost on him.

And yes, I will be attending some NIT games if/when Maryland ends up there. You see, some of us go to watch our team in games even when they aren't playing Duke. I love how you admitted that you only watch Maryland in person when the play Duke. Very telling.

As for you Pete, perhaps I should have said "follow/watch" instead of "support". So you aren't going to follow/watch your team on Thursday or even Friday against Duke. Must be a diehard fan.

Pretty much, actually I cheer the team/players and laugh at Gary and shake my head at how pathetic he acts and coaches.

Not bitter, actually very happy, especially knowing Gary's contract is up in 2 years, which means he only has next year to fix things or no extension :)

Not homophobic, I really applaud your struggles and your openness with you affection towards Barno, I know its tough with all the finacial stuggles you and Barno have with you being unemployeed and him having a pretend job, so I wish you 2 the best.

Again Barno, you are an idiot. You lost the debate about MD going to the NCAA's, right? You lost the debate about us not going to another NIT, right? You made statements, that the Miami or Va game was a lock, wrong again, right? You say we are trending ok and doing fine, I think its easily proveable and others have done it, that you are wrong, again! I can go on forever, but all you can say is that I hate gary, true, want him gone, true, and that I am not a fan because I only went to the Duke game, FALSE. I only went to that game since my fiance bought me tickets, otherwise I would save my money and spend it on investments, wedding, home, etc., while the economy is down and while Gary is running a weak program due to his laziness. I will always watch and support the team, even when I was in SF, I found bars that showed the games and I wore my dorky MD shirt...so guess what, you are wrong on everything again.

Some of you are morons or have money to blow, if you are going to every home game. I choose to spend my money for wisely than you, since I know you are a moron that does not have money to blow :)

Btw, go to Scout and see how many FANS/Alumni have been trying to give away tickets all year, but no one is taking them. Kind of shows where Garys program is going, trust me Anderson is playing nice with Gary right now, but next year if the seats are empty again and the team is struggling, do you think he is going to sit tight on a lame duck coach???? :) woohooo, soon GARY will be gone :)

I know you're great at pulling up old quotes. Could you please pull up all your quotes from the last 6 months were you said the tournament was a lock. Please let it be that Gary leaves in two years as was indicated above. Light at the end of the tunnel. BTW CM88 how about Barno's pathetic "The game has changed now" quote to make an excuse for Gary missing 4 in 8 years. Really pathetic. We we get a new coach Barno you shouldn't really year for him instead maybe you can go to Gary's drive way and do the wave there. I'm glad to hear Gary's settling down in his mid 60s.

CM88, I would happily tell you any of the things I've posted on here to your face. Sorry, but no one is intimidated by you.

And yes, you did comically make physical threats on the internet. You have a lot of issues dude, one of which is your fascination with inventing salaries for those you disagree with and then mocking those made up incomes. You obviously have an inferiority complex which drives you to overcompensate by telling yourself that those who you disagree with must be unemployed or employed with low paying jobs, must be homosexuals who are sexually attracted to Gary Williams, must be "5 ft 6 and 140 lbs" (the height and weight you decided I was), etc etc etc.

Never said that.

"Please let it be that Gary leaves in two years as was indicated above"

Come again? Not really sure what this means since it's barely English, but my guess is you think Gary is leaving in 2 years, is that correct? Well, if he makes the tournament in either of the next two years, he gets an AUTOMATIC extension on his contract. Guess you and CM88 will have to continue rooting against Maryland the next 2 years so we can finally get rid of the coach you hate.

Actually, sex once a week would be too much for my old arse, I may get hurt!

I did ask him to give me the seat, but he wouldnt, I dont think going behind Johnny H and yelling, where's Barno, is the way to go :) Plus, I have a feeling, he doesnt sit there...more talk than action type of kid.

Reston, trust me, there are tons of halarious Barno comments/guarantees, and pretty much all of them where wrong. I am pretty sure he predicted Jordan would win POY and Stog would win Fresh of Year too. Funny thing, when MD does finally hire a new coach, hopefully soon, if he is black Barno will jump ship quicker than any fair weather fan ever imagined. He will freak out and call it a "quota" hire or some other racist issue, and not that the person was qualified.

The game has changed ahahhaha, yeah but others still figure out how to recruit, guess since the Weber Toun is no longer on campus at MD, Gary cant figure out how to get to the kids games or houses to recruit, he needs kids like Wilcox and Baxter to come to him,,,,old, lazy, and lost,...great coach,,hahaha!

Please find one coach that went to 14 NCAA tournaments in 17 years and was fired for lack of performance. If you can't--which we know you can't--I suggest you take your nonsense and excuses and hit the road.

And please don't try the weak response you tried in the other thread. Denny Crum was not fired. And Nolan Richardson didn't go to 14 NCAA tourneys in 17 years nor was he fired for lack of performance.

You can't name anyone because there is no one. I can name countless, countless coaches who were not fired after going to 4 NCAA tourneys and 4 NITs in 8 years. That list is almost endless. However, you qualify your statement with "major program" which is a subject term. There are plenty ACC, Big East, Pac10, SEC, etc coaches that didn't get fired after going to 4 NITs in 8 years. Plenty.

So, in summary, you tried to make a relevant point and, as usual, came up way short Restondupes.
