I love the way Wells competes.

Maryland cuts lead to 8

Any old timers remember Reggie Jackson the basketball player. That is who P reminds me of.


Only vaguely....he was a footnote with guys like King, Williams, Graham and manning on those teams. I do recall that the expectations for him in college were much higher than what he accomplished.

Ball Game. Even if Maryland was playing well, it's hard to beat Duke when they shoot this many 3's with success.

I saw him as a HS player in Philly and thought he was excellent. He went crazy on the weights and his body type changed and he lost his shot. P seemingly has done the same thing.
Suliamon is playing out of his mind.

Good lord they don't even try to get a hand in Sulimon's face. I mean,the guy is only 6-6 from three....at least try to disrupt his shot. C'mon!

Unreal and infuriating that MD is going to lose this game due to a flukey BS performance from Sulaimon. So effing typical.

Poor game by Alex Len today on both ends of the floor.

He's just not all that good, IMO.

Shocker. Howard commits a TO with a wide open basket in front of him

Sloppy TO's from Maryland.

Did not realize hand checking was legal in NCAA.

We can bitch about Terps but Duke is playing well.

Yeah I'm having doubts about him too. That Kentucky game might end up being the zenith of his basketball career.

I said after the FSU game when their 7 footer off the bench dominated him, Len is not NBA ready. I'm sticking to my guns, I don't care what the experts say. If he goes pro after this year, hell be out of the league in under four years, just like Jordon Williams.

His ball skills and instincts seem poor to me. No reason to be getting dominated by Plumlee like this.

Lot of NBA scouts will disagree.

Partly his fault and partly blame to lack of PG and passing.

This game obviously did not set up for a MD win, so no surprise here at all. Poor shooting in a tough building like Cameron is forgivable. The turnovers against a motivated team like Duke are understandable. But the pitiful defense by the Terps today is inexcusable.

Mitchell is still playing his ass off. Props to him....he'll be fun to watch the next couple years.

They are wrong. Not surprising that some will be enamored by his size and athleticism, but he will be very bad in the NBA as currently constructed.

Very true about the PG play hurting him. Though that's no excuse for his oafie, poor defense.

I'm done with this game.

As much as it's a good thing that the players get some rest, I really wish there wasn't a week layoff before the SB. I'm going to be bored out of my mind tomorrow.

He needs to work on getting a 10-15 shot, because with the way he plays around the hoop, he could be a star.
