If they can limit the unforced turnovers (not pace of play ones as much as the careless / dumb / inexperienced ones) and shoot just well enough to make the defense have to show a little respect, I think they can be very good.

The rebounding on this team is going to give us a lot of extra possessions on offense.

They aren't Duke but they could definitely be the second best team.

I am going to the Duke/md game at Comcast..can't wait for that.

Nice to see Aronhalt looking for the ball.

If teams are going to zone the Terps and they are...Logan is going to have to hit the 3.

Yep, we need him to be 40%+ from beyond the arc.

Huge for MD to have a real shooter. Been missing that.

It's a joke that MD isn't ranked. I'm not sure there are 15 better teams than the Terps, much less 25.

I wish they could have drawn a better matchup for the Challenge. The UK game said a lot, but I'd like to have a better idea with how they matchup with the better teams after a few games. Unfortunately we won't know a thing until conference play starts.

I'm going to love watching Dez play. He's always smiling out there, and it seems to be infectious.

Let me say again, these refs are horrible. Just horrible.


Anyway, like the color guy said. If you think Turge isn't a good coach you better check yourself. Great adjustments to just dominate the 2nd half. Something they have done every game so far this year.

I have every confidence in Turg's in-game coaching ability. He was billed as a great coach, and that's been true IMO.

with the power the Terps have on the blocks, he should get the open looks to do that.

I think Northwestern only had 3 offensive rebounds all game long and 2 of them were off of long threes. Another great job by the Terps on the glass.

Incredible second half for the Terps. Nearly a flawless half, aside from some goofing around on a few late possessions (most of which still resulted in 2nd chance buckets).

A real good second half and a nice win for the Terps.

This is a talented team. If they can get average point guard play they can be real good.

Dez Wells is terrific around the rim. He has a real good handle, and uses a nice crossover.
I liked the way Maryland drove the ball inside. The early attack of the rim relaxed things so they could do damage outside.
