With a second round matchup against Temple and a potential Sweet 16 game vs. Robbie Hummel-less Purdue. If we get this bracket, I'm doing cartwheels from College Park to Caracas and back.
First round game against Marquette and a potential second round game against Vanderbilt. This bracket ain't too shabby either.
DT's Take - I like it too. But any coach as a 3 seed who saw MD as a 6 would go to the selection committee and say "Come on, man."
Its nice of the World Wide Leader to confirm what we've already known for a few weeks now: this is an NCAA tournament team.
Maryland is in the "other contenders" for team of the week, and Vasquez was a contender for PoW. Meanwhile, College Park is a place to be. - Ben B.
Wow, Andy Katz is pouring on the Maryland love today. - Ben B.
Little on the low side. - Ben B.
I stumbled upon this last night and figured I'd link it since its officially GV Appreciation Week. Luke Winn from SI interviewed GV towards the end of his sophomore season. Really a good read.
"LW: In an interview for that SI article, Gary Williams told me that you saluted him before the first day of practice in your freshman year. Did you ever do that again?
GV: I do it once in a while still. Not that often. I show him a lot of respect. To me he's maybe the best coach that I'll ever have -- him and Stu Vetter from high school. I love coach Williams -- his attitude, his passion, his energy. It's like I see myself in the mirror when I see the way he coaches practice, and how he's so intense. That's my personality. I want to be coached by him and win a national championship with him."
Gary and Greivis really are a match made in Terp heaven. A Natty seems like a bit of stretch but hopefully these two get to put up some kind of banner together.
Pretty good week for the lax Terps. Duke is up next on Saturday. - Ben B.
Sucks, but pretty much an "eh". Probably wasn't getting into Maryland anyway. - Ben B.
My Take: I still don't get how this kid can get into Georgetown and not Maryland. I get that we have higher standards for athletes, but why? What purpose does it serve?
I don't even care if Maryland is recruiting him anymore, I just like watching Deuce pwn people. - Ben B.
Darn. I need some good recruiting news to tide me over till Duke. - Ben B.
