They're Baaack!

Unless you were crazy enough to blow off work and go careening out I-66 to catch the Terps' game at JMU a week ago yesterday (now who would do something like that?), then you haven't had the treat of seeing Maryland play (live) since December 9 (doesn't that seem like a lifetime ago?).

The good news is that your wait is over (finally!) as the Terps return to action tomorrow at Comcast to close out 2007 with the Terrapin Creampuff Classic. The three-game round-robin event actually begins this afternoon (Friday) at 1 PM, when the Richmond Spiders face off against the UMBC Retrievers. If, like many Washington-area residents, you're not at work this week between the holidays, and if, by now, the kids and/or the in-laws are driving you absolutely bonkers, load up the Prius, the SUV or the mini-van and bring the whole extended clan to College Park! Since the Terps aren't playing, admission to today's Richmond vs UMBC game is free! It's hard to beat a deal like that!

The Terps themselves take to the floor on Saturday, at 2 PM, when they face the Richmond Spiders, and then again on Sunday, also at 2 PM, when they meet the UMBC Retrievers. (Admission to these two games will not be free.) If for some reason you can't make it to those games, you can watch a live web cast via ACC Select or listen on the radio.

According to this morning's Washington Times, the Terps had a good rest over the holidays and are ready to rock in this weekend's tournament and roll into the ACC season after the New Year. We fans are well-rested too and looking forward to this weekend's Classic, some good champagne on Monday night, and, most important, the start of ACC play next week!
