Will be able to catch the game, but not sure I'll have a chance to write about it.

The is the last tune-up, prior to games at Northwestern, and against George Mason next week. Maryland is going to win, what is important is how the Terps play.

I suspect Turg will continue to split the groups for Georgia Southern. I would like to see Aronhalt get more comfortable on the wing and hit a few 3's. Same with Layman. Take the open 3, as teams are going to sag on Maryland's inside power.
I would think we will see more mix and match against Northwestern.

Is it really as difficult to just get a hand in a shooter's face on a 3-pt as the Terps make it look?

Extremely poor 1st half by MD. Only up by 3 at the half. Too many turnovers and they just look flat.

Went to fix dinner during the half, came back with 7:55 left in the game and Terps are up by 14. Sounds like Turge got them straightened out good.

This team has played much better in the 2nd half than 1st half than all the games I've seen so far this year. Don't know why but they seem to be slow starters.

Anyway, it's clear to me that the frontcourt is very good. I would venture a good guess that we have one of the best 10 or 15 frontcourts in America. The big question mark is going to be the backcourt. Can they score enough, shoot well enough, and handle the ball well enough to make us a very good team. I have to believe Sam Cassell Jr would have helped this team this year. He was supposed to be a good shooter. Have to think he would have had a pretty good basketball IQ and fundamentals considering his bloodline.

Sam is a lot like some of the guards they have. A scorer more than a shooter.

I think the younger guys will get better as the year goes on. DId not see the game, watched ND/USC instead but sounds like this one was a slow developing game.

I have probably said this before, but I will say it again. This is a completely different year for Maryland. They are no loaded in the frontcourt, and having struggles in the backcourt. I expect that to get better as the season progresses. I won't back off of my prediction of a tournament team.
