Maryland Minute - 03.21.11 - Lady Terps Take on Georgetown Tonight at Comcast

Couldn't find any images we have rights to that had the women's team on it, so we're kicking it old school with the MM logo today.

Not too much going on right now in Terrapin Nation. Aside from the women taking on Georgetown tonight, the biggest story Terps fans care about is probably Bruce Pearl being fired. Details below.

The women's bball team takes on Georgetown tonight at 7:00 in College Park. Hopefully we win so we can have bragging rights (and because I hate Georgetown).

Not only is Brenda an awesome coach and recruiter, she's also doing all of this while dealing with her son being treated for leukemia. And her husband is from Laurel, which I never knew.

Lady Hoyas Getting a Little Disrespectful
Whoa, calm down there, Georgetown.

"As far as Maryland is concerned, I don't know if guys know, but we beat Tennessee earlier this season. And we've played UConn three times already," Georgetown guard Monica McNutt said Monday. "I don't think we're very concerned in terms of the legacy of a team, what a team has done." ...

"We're playing the five girls that step out on the floor to match up with our five girls in uniform," she said. "I'm a local kid, so I had a chance to watch those championship teams. Marissa Coleman is not there anymore. Things have changed." ...

"You want us to be scared because we're at Maryland? We're not scared," the coach said. "We play Tennessee. We play Georgia Tech. We play UConn. We play tough opponents. I think this team is well prepared to handle anything that's thrown at it."

Is it really disrespectful? No, probably not in the very literal sense of they didn't say "we don't respect Maryland." But the tone of "because we're at Maryland," is definitely a little out there. Also, last time I checked, Maryland > GT. -BB

My take - wow. I already hate Georgetown, but now I hate them even more. I might have to go to the game tonight with signs and start chants. I hope we win by 50.

Recruiting Report: Maryland the 'perfect deal' for Nick Brigham
Ben B - He's a smart guy, got a 1400 on the SAT on the 1600 scale. Wonder if we can get him an academic scholarship. Oh, and:

"He has a tremendously strong lower body, big thighs, big hips, great leg drive and he comes off [the ball] hard," Chadwick said. "He really comes off and gets after it. He’s not just another big guy who lumbers off the ball. We’re an option-based team. We’re in the four-point stance, coming off hard and low every single time. That kind of tenacity and intensity, I think, is something that attracts peoples’ attention."

As most of your heard, Pearl was fired at Tennessee. But apparently there are additional violations, fairly recent, that made their AD pull the trigger.
