Back in Action

The Terps, who have not played at Comcast since November 23, and not at all since December 9, wind up their extended road trip in southeastern Virginia today, as they take on Old Dominion in Norfolk at 1 PM. While Maryland could be a little rusty, the Monarchs are coming off a very close loss to the Lady Vols on Thursday night. Wendy Larry's team is always tough at home, and until the loss to Tennessee, the Monarchs had held a 29-game home winning streak, tied for first in the nation.

This afternoon's game is a homecoming for Maryland's Kim Rodgers, who grew up in the Hampton Roads area. Vicki Friedman in today's Virginian-Pilot has a very nice article about Kim, her decision to attend Maryland, and her delayed debut as a college player due to injury and illness. (But someone please tell Vicki that Kristi Toliver's famous three-pointer did not win the Natty for Maryland in overtime.)

If your travel plans aren't taking you to Norfolk today, you should be able to watch the game on Comcast SportsNet, or listen via the Terps' web site.

So, someone tell me if it's true that Marah Strickland has left our program. Someone who purports to work with one of the "starter's dads" claims that she has left - if so, why doesn't the program say so? Why bother with the smokescreen about her taking a leave of absence due to a family emergency?
