Looking at the future basketball team next year and the potential they have and the expectations we have, I thought about the best Terp teams of all time, considering our expectations at the time.
Here is my list
Overachievers: NCAA National Championship of 2001: I can't imagine anyone disagreeing with this selection.
Underachievers: Lefty's 1974 team that lost to NC State in the ACC tournament championship. Although this is probably unfair because only one team from each conference went to the Tourney. Still, that could of been the beginning of the UCLA of the East.
The teams led by Albert King of the late 70s should of been better but IMHO were handicapped by Lefty being out coached by Dean Smith. Also, the Len Bias teams of the mid 80s had the best Terp player of all time but that's it.
