The Bus Not Taken . . .

At the beginning of the season, when the Rebounders announced their schedule for bus trips, today's game at Pitt was among them. Being the fanatics that we are, we actually signed up to spend about 10 hours round trip on a bus in order to see this game in person and support the Terps. As it turned out, however, not enough other people signed up, and so the trip was cancelled. At the time of the cancellation, we were disappointed. But now, all we can say is thank goodness! About the only thing that would have been worse than watching this afternoon's humiliating defeat of the Terps by Pitt (86-57. . .ouch!) in person would have been sitting on a bus right now facing a five hour trip home.

The game started much like many other games, pretty close, with the teams alternating runs. At the half, Maryland was down . . . but not by much, 32-39. However, the second half was all Pitt, all the time.

So congratulations to the Panthers for what Coach Berenato, in her post-game remarks to the Pitt crowd, called "The biggest win in the history of our program." As for the Terps, well, there's obviously much work still to be done.

Speechless. Not really but you know what they say, if you don't have anything good to say... One thing I can say, that Pitt announcer was truly getting on my nerves. In his view, the Terps were so shocked by the greatness of the Panthers, they just couldn't cope. Give me a break.

Maybe your absence is why they didn't play well in this game? We'll bounce back.

The continued trend of poor perimeter defense and an abundance of turnovers should be a major concern. As a die hard Lady Terps fan I hope Brenda Frese and her assistants can solve these issues before the ACC portion of the schedule starts. Keep the faith everyone!
