What an amazing 24 hours its been here in College Park...Thanks to the guys for help on the links today.
If they get to the ACC final, I think 3's a real possibility. Other than that...I don't really want Kansas State in the third round. - Ben B.
Great piece on Vasquez,, saying he's locked up ACC POY after hitting for the cycle in his head to head against Scheyer last night, and just an overall good read by Dana O'Neil over at the mothership. - DT
I wanna stay an underdog.
We really shouldn’t read too much into one result in a rivalry game, so we won’t, but one thing is very clear in that Maryland has been playing the better part of two months much, much better than their ranking might 0therwise indicate. Since the new year turned, the Terps have only lost at Wake (when WFU was playing well), Clemson and Duke. That’s it. Pollsters have been holding four nonconference losses against them, but if Maryland isn’t a top four seed in the NCAA Tournament, then we haven’t seen one.

God loves Greivis Vasquez more than Duke. That makes sense.
"It was a tough shot," Vasquez admitted with a smile. "It was meant to be. I'm honest. I work on those shots, but God wanted me to score that the way that I did....I work on those shots. I'm gonna be honest. It went in. it was meant to be and I thank God for that and for everything he did for us today.

My Take: Once GV hit that shot, you knew it was our night.
Gary Parrish pours out the Greivis love. Another good read. - DT
Number's smaller than I expected, but not miniscule. Officials called the students' behavior "ludicrous". - Ben B.
My Take: If you've got a chance, search the Facebook group "College Park Celebration of March 3 Victory of Duke." Lots of amazing pictures. I think the behavior of police who beat a student's head into the ground was "ludicrous."
Always good to hear what the opposition says after a game like this. They give us props, which is nice to see. - DT
83-77 behind Lynetta Kizer's 22 points and 10 rebounds. Next up is top seeded Duke at 3 pm tomorrow.
