Maryland Minute 3.16.10 - Three Terp Commitments Make Capital Classic Roster

Mych? Mike?
Mych? Mike?

U.S. roster for Capital Classic announced - Stoglin, Howard, and Parker Will be There
Definitely a reason to head up to American University's gym in a month. Congrats to all three.

The US team is loaded. Has three McD's All-Americans. Capital team has...Victor Oladipo? Love Vic, but a blowout's coming. Still, though, if you can make it on Apr. 15, definitely hit up Bender Arena to see some great talent (and Terps, of course).

Harris Poll: Terps #4 favorite men’s basketball team

On the popularity rankings, ACC school Maryland roared back into the top 10 for the first time since 2003. The Terrapins soared into a tie with the University of Texas at No. 4, one spot behind the University of Connecticut.

Is this shocking to anyone else? I mean, I love it, but I'm still shocked, even blown away by it. -DT

Why Aren't These Types of Political Ads in Maryland?
A Kentucky politician makes a political ad against his opponent in the Senate primary. No big deal, until you realize the entire premise of the ad is that his opponent went to Duke.

I love it.

Want to get to Spokane to watch the Terps? Hope you booked your flight already.
Kind of cool that less than 24 hours after it was announced that MD was going to Spokane, Southwest sold out their flights from BWI and Dulles for this weekend. Hope there's a decent showing there. -DT

Coleman nears pantheon of UH basketball greats
That's quite a list of "greats". Should tell you how good he is. Still, unless he can will them to a Sweet 16, I doubt he'll top Akeem Olajuwon on any lists.

Moses Abraham Down to Indiana, Georgetown
No surprise. Hopefully he goes to Indiana, just so GT fans don't get any fulfillment.

Oh, N.C. State - Star PF Luke Cothron Decommits
He's been a soft verbal for some time. I've brought up his name before as a possible guy to get involved with, but Maryland isn't on the initial list, and I don't really expect him them to make it. Hopefully this doesn't mean Leslie is leaning toward NCST.

Sterling Gibbs Offered By Florida
Have we moved onto Quinn Cook anyway? Don't know, but if we're still on Sterling, Florida just offered.

Oregon Fires Ernie Kent, Sets Itself Up to Be a Powerhouse
Don't be surprised if Terrence Ross and Jones commit after being "impressed" with whomever the Ducks hire.

Lions acquire former Terps QB Hill in trade with 49ers -
I've always liked Shaun Hill. He was QB my freshman year when we won the ACC and went to the Orange Bowl. Stupid Alex Smith all the sudden becoming good. I feel bad that Hill got shipped to Detroit of all places. Best of luck. -DT
