Hey, all. I just committed to UMD two weeks ago as a journalism major. I've been passively interested in the Terrapins and have a decent base of college basketball knowledge, but I'm trying to get a better sense of exactly what the expectations are for the basketball team next year. I'm a big fan of Stoglin's game, and I know enough about recruiting to understand that Cleare, Mitchell and Layman are good future pieces for a contending team. But I haven't followed the team especially closely, so I'd like to educate myself a bit before I hit campus in the fall.
With this in mind, can anyone describe the basic tenor of expectations for the basketball team next year? Can they stand a reasonable shot at contending for an ACC crown? Better? Worse?
I'm a devout Pitt fan, but I swear I'll drop that obsession starting next year. Thanks for your help. Go Terps!
