I, like most people on here, do not think Maryland will be making the NCAA Tournament. However, at 13-7, 3-3 in the ACC, we do have a shot to make it.
ESPN's weekly Bubble Watch is out, and while Maryland isn't on it as a team with "work left to do", they are mentioned a few times as a team that can play themselves into consideration.
Eamonn Brennan says:
How NC State and Miami fare the rest of the season should be interesting to see. Neither team -- or still-in-it Maryland -- is looking particularly strong at this point, but hey, 68 bids have to come from somewhere.
In the next two weeks, Miami's schedule reads as follows: Maryland, at Duke, Virginia Tech, at FSU, UNC. It's go time in LeBron Land, starting with the Terps, who are almost 50 spots behind the U in the RPI but could easily replace them in this space next week with a victory in Coral Gables.
Jason King, another college basketball reporter for ESPN, has another version of the Bubble Watch where he puts bubble teams into four different categories: 1) In for now, could be in trouble, 2) Still have work to do, 3) Crazier things have happened and 4) Win your conference tournament.
The Terps fall into the third category.
So, we're at least getting mentioned as a team that could get some consideration with a couple wins. That's a lot better than I thought it would be at this point in the season.
