My recap of this disappointing loss by the Terps tonight. Shouldn't have even gone to OT if they had played smart basketball to begin this game. http://accsportsnati... ... ime-90-86/

Congrats to Mackus for single handedly making more posts in this thread tonight than this whole section had had since Chris created the forum. ;)

Seriously though, brutal loss. After fighting back so hard to get back in it take it to overtime we lose in 2 OT after Miami hits a miracle 3 in the 1st OT and down to literally 5 or 6 active players in the 2nd OT. That's one you have to find a way to win. I think a win there and it's something that could have possibly gave the team the kick they needed to contend through the tough 2nd half of the ACC schedule.

Terrible, terrible loss, considering I did not expect them to win this game to start with. No excuse to lose that game the way they did. Game like this are worse because had they won I would have been super-pumped for the UNC game. Now I barely even want to watch it.

I guess I'll try to look at the positive here, and realize that Parker, Faust and Len all made pretty decent contributions. Those are 3 guys that are going to need to continue to develop and grow if MD is to become a solid NCAA team in the next few years. And of course, Stoglin is Stoglin.

(On an unrelated note, great to see you posting here, Mackus!)

It really is a brutal loss. I don't think they have what it takes to really get onto the bubble, but a win here would have kept that hope a lot more alive than it is now. The only 3 teams we've beaten in the ACC are the absolute dregs (and we'll beat BC, too). But we haven't been able to finish the job against the better teams, despite playing pretty well for the majority of the game against each of NC State, Florida State, Duke, and Miami.

On that side not, it's certainly great to be chatting sports with all you guys again!

Maybe we can pull off a miracle against UNC, but I don't think it'll happen. They are a level above Duke, who is a level above FSU/UVA, who are a level above the middle of the pack (NC State, Miami, Clemson, and us) of which Maryland is likely the weakest of (although we can probably beat Clemson). At least Maryland looks to be pretty solidly above the slums of the ACC - VaTech, BC, Georgia Tech, and Wake Forest.
