Blake knows he's $$$ (Photo by Clive Rose/Getty Images)
In case you missed it, Steve Blake, with the Lakers down 1, hit a $$$ 3-pointer that ended up being the game winner for the Lakers against Houston. Check out the 2:30 mark on the video. For future MM, I'm going to try to highlight any outstanding plays or performances by former Terps players who are now in the NBA. Let me know what you think. If you like it, I'll keep it up. If not, it shall go the way of the dodo. It probably won't be in every MM, just when a former Terp has a big game/key play, like Steve Blake last night.

Tracking the Terps: How should the Diamondback respond? - Jeff Barker - baltimoresun.com
Still a lot of talk going on about the DeSouza-mocking cartoon the Diamondback published yesterday. I think it was stupid, and mostly classless (and not funny), but if they want to make themselves look like idiots, they're certainly entitled to go down that road. But should they respond? Jeff Barker is asking fans what they think of the Diamondback's cartoon. What say you, Terp Nation?

Sounds pretty reasonable.
Maryland may seem like a team moving in the wrong direction due to the departure of their top three scorers and that may be partially true since this team will not likely tie Duke for the ACC title this time around, but this is a good team that should be right in the mix for an NCAA Tournament berth. If Bowie can handle running the show, or if Stoglin is up for the job, the Terps will be looking for more than simply an NCAA appearance.
Howard is more promising than Stoglin, but other than that, it's okay. -BB
My Take - I think it's a little low, in my opinion. I think we'll surprise a lot of people. I think we should be in the mid to upper 30s...
