Instead they threw up ill advised threes all night and they could not connect. With 2 minutes left before half time the Terps had the game in hand in they failed to play defense and they turned the ball over. The Terps also did not dominate the boards which is something they have done most of the season.
Len is not ready for the NBA, I can't beleive all the talk about him as a lottery pick. I predict him as a D league player and then a future over sees......Note to Len,get in the gym, work on your handle, and STAY IN SCHOOL........
Good Post Dan. Some thoughts:
--I'm not tossing in the NCAA towel until someone rips it out of my hands. We still have a big game at VA Sunday and then the tourney. I still think 23 wins gets us in the Big Dance.
-- Turnovers are the product of a team with no point guard. I understand they are bringing in a kid next year with a lot of potential to fill that need not to mention a much needed shooter. But right now we are a rudderless ship outside of Wells.
-- I hang Wednesday's loss on Turgeon more than any other factor and that includes NC's lights out shooting from threeland. When you are playing against a four guard lineup, you pound the ball inside and draw the fouls. Just no excuse when you have guys like Mitchell, Len and Shaq along your front line.
-- No question Len is not NBA ready but this is a weak draft from all reports and he will get lots of $$$$ for being a top ten pick. It's really an easy decision and one I welcome. I can see Ernie Grunfeld salavitating at the thought of drafting another soft Russian front liner.
