Maryland Minute 11.24.09 - Deuce Bello is a Manchild

This guy's got C.J. Leslie hops.  Do want.

Less than an hour till the Terps take on their first real test of the season.  Can the two freshmen battle with some legit Division 1 bigs?  Will Greivis step up against better competition?  We'll find out soon enough.  The real season starts in an hour. 

Deuce Bello Posterizes a 7-Footer
To quote the YouTube commenter, "SWEET JESUS OF NAZARETH". Yeah, I will be heartbroken when he goes elsewhere, even if we have no shot at all. - Ben B.

My Take: This is a must watch. 

Box Score from Chaminade Game
The two lines that stand out the most are Sean Mosley's 19 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists, and JWill's near double-double with 9 points and 10 rebounds. I know it was against a DII school but performances like these make me think we can be pretty darn good next year, too. 

Terps -2.5 vs. Cincy Tonight
Hey, it's a slow news day. Too high? Too low? I think we'll win by 6 or 7.

 Expect Turnovers in CP Saturday - Dinich

Well, thanks for the news-flash.  

"It can’t get much worse, can it? BC quarterback Dave Shinskie threw four interceptions last week against North Carolina, including one that was returned for a touchdown and another that came back to the BC 1-yard line. He also had a fumble returned for a touchdown. Overall, the Eagles had six turnovers. And Maryland made three interceptions last week at Florida State."

A turnover filled game would be a fitting way to end the season.  

Hey but at least she's picking us to win...
21 - 17.

"If the Terps were going to give up this year, they would’ve done it long before the last play of the fourth quarter at Florida State last week. Boston College is turning the ball over at an alarming rate, and got fortunate with its road win over Virginia. I say the Terps win one for the Fridge on Senior Day."

Decent point by Dinich and one that we really haven't touched on. At least our guys haven't given up.  

Field Hockey Lands Five All-Americans - Official Site
Just a few days after falling short of their dream season, 5 Terps have been named All-Americans. Katie O'Donnell and Emma Thomas were first teamers, while Nicole Muracco and Alicia Grater made the second team, and Alexis Pappas cracked the third team.  

Maryland Still In Running for Attaochu
Would be an amazing get at this point, actually. Good, smart DE.

"I think his top five, in no set order, are Illinois, Syracuse, Kansas State, Maryland is in the mix and I would also say Duke," [coach Rick] Houchens said.

Early 2010 Draft Board
It's Insider, but Maryland has three players on the list - Travis Baltz, Alex Wujciak, and Bruce Campbell all check in at 5th at their respective positions. - Ben B.
