I think Maryland needs to have two sharp, crisp games before conference play. I look for Turgeon to play these two games with rotations similar to what he plans using in conference.

One other thing, can not wait to actually watch Maryland on the TV and not the computer.

Maryland comes out a little flat down 5-4 at the first TO. Cleare came in for Len at the 17 minute mark. Shaq with a quick layup.

Delaware State taking the clock down inside 10 on their possessions by running the weave.

Maryland closes the half with a big 25-6 run to lead 40-22. Turgeon turned up the pressure, in the last 7 minutes.

Nice contributions from the bench that played more than the starters.
Allen 5, Mitchell 8, Layman and Shaq 6 apiece.
Len only 2 shots for 2 points, Wells with 4 including a monster dunk.

So assuming this lead holds, can the Terps be crowned MEAC Champs? They'll be 3-0 in conference. They can be the first team to secure a tournament bid.

Maryland wins by 29. Bench played well today.

BTW, hopefully only one more game of Glenn Consor. He is awful. Sometimes, I wonder if he is watching the same game.

Charles Mitchell was the real good today. 19 points and 13 rebounds.

The young guy reminds me of Buck WIlliams. Relentless on the boards.

Agreed... Mitchell continues to surprise and impress me. He's been fun to watch.

Got to go to the game today. Not a terrible-sized crowd for a snowy saturday in the midst of a holiday season, but it was pretty dead for the most part.

This freshmen class is pretty impressive IMO. I think all 4 of the guys seeing minutes now are going to be legitimate, front line starters. Mitchell and Cleare are going to dominate the blocks over the next 2-3 years.

Alex Len - I get the hype about his skill set, and if the season ends and he's still projected to go highly, I certainly would expect him to leave. But I just don't think he's a guy who's mentally ready to play in the NBA. It's hard for me to envision him going up against the top big guys in the NBA and not backing down. Maybe he's just uninspired against the weaker competition.

I'm very interested to see what Turgeon does when conference play starts. I think it's great that he's keeping guys rested, but you've got to let some of these guys get some more minutes. No one played more than 24 minutes today. Len played 17. You look back over the box scores and a lot of times no one played over 30 minutes. And while I think it's great to get guys some time and experience against cupcakes, I just feel like there's no real identity to the team. No go-to guy.

I think the identity is a tough deep team that plays good D and works the offense inside/out.
As for the go to guy, I think that is Wells. Turgeon has intentionally spread the minutes. He has used the NC schedule as an audition.
Look for Len, Wells, Padgett, Faust and Allen to play the key minutes with Shaq, Mitchell and Howard and Aronhalt in the mix. Layman will have to show up in limited time and if he does he will get more minutes.
