A Date with Dayton. Okay now, don't accuse the BasketCases of looking past this weekend's opponents in Hartford . . . we're not! We remember how tough St. John's played the Terps last year in the second round. Any team is capable of pulling a major upset . . . just ask Stanford about their #1 vs #16 match-up with Maryland's upcoming opponent, Harvard, in the 1998 tourney! Talk about upsets . . . that was the mother of all upsets! Or, more recently, ask Boston College how their game against the Crimson turned out earlier this season --- would you believe a 10-point victory for the
ACC Ivy League team? You'd better believe it --- because it happened!
So, even though we're not looking ahead, we do think it's time for Terps fans to PLAN AHEAD. And that means that you need to book your flight, or order your AAA triptik, and reserve your hotel room in Dayton NOW! If you don't think that the Lady Vols fans aren't already grabbing up every available room in the Dayton area, you're kidding yourself. So let's not allow the Orange Crush to squeeze out the Turtle Nation . . . make your plans now for the Regional of the Century (Terps, Vols, Sooners, Buckeyes, if the seeds hold!) so you will be ready to support your Terrapins, once they've successfully finished up their two games in the Nutmeg state.
