Maryland Minute 2.23.10 - Media Members Stepping Up to Terps' Defense


Props to Ben B. for most of today's links.

In defense of the Maryland Terrapins - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN
One of the best pieces I've read on ESPN in a while. Does a great job saying how much better Maryland is than their RPI and the AP/ESPN polls indicate. Also points out that any coach that has to face Maryland as a "7 seed" will not be very happy with the NCAA tournament selection committee for seeding them that low. Props to The Fin for bringing the article to our attention. - DT

More national attention for Greivis.

One-of-a-kind Vasquez makes his mark at Maryland | Washington Examiner 
Another good GV article. I feel like his ACC POY campaign is starting to pick up some steam...

"He's just a great player. We keyed on him to make sure he couldn't get going offensively. We double-teamed him, and he still found a way to help his team: He took seven free throws and had eight assists," Yellow Jackets coach Paul Hewitt said."

Other than that? Probably not.
