Going to UVA for the game last night was fun, but being able to see this on the scoreboard as you left made it a lot better. (c) - David Tucker
First off, I had the chance to travel down to UVA yesterday for the game. If you live in the DC Metro area, it really only takes about two hours to get down there, so it's actually a lot closer than you may think. Tickets are affordable (mine were free as a result of some writing I do for Raycom Sports) and easy to get and John Paul Jones arena is pretty nice.
We didn't have a MM yesterday because a). Ben G. and I both didn't have power for most of the day due to the snoPRISE! storm and there really wasn't any note worthy Terps news to report. So now that you're up to date, I bring you today's MM...

My take - hopefully Anderson can unite the department and hopefully such a unity will help with things like recruiting...
Ben G. - I've always liked Mulrooney. He's got good size for a center and a good head on his shoulders. Should be a solid four year player for the Terps.

Terrapins Insider - Talkin' Terps: Would missing the NCAA tournament be a disappointment?
Would losing your arm be a disappointment? Would losing your job be a disappointment? OH COURSE MISSING THE NCAA TOURNAMENT, no matter who you lost the previous season, would be a disappointment. I really don't understand why some writers ask stupid questions like this. Surprisingly, they all seem to originate from the same news paper...
