This Is Kind of Spooky

Last night, the Terps beat the Loyola Greyhounds by 31 points, 83-52. Marissa Coleman bounced back from her subpar outing in Pittsburgh to lead Maryland with 19 points and 13 rebounds. Kim Rodgers (red shirt last season and mono earlier this year) had a perfect debut in her first ever appearance for Maryland, hitting all 4 of her 3 point attempts and both of her free throws! Lynetta Kizer also recorded a double-double (15 pts, 11 rebounds) and Dee Liles added 17 points to Maryland's total.

Speaking of totals, here's the really spooky part: if you add Maryland's margin of victory (31) to the number of the draft pick (2) that the Mystics secured in yesterday's 2009 Draft Lottery , you get 33. And if you add up the four numbers from the ping pong ball combination that won the Atlanta Dream the right to pick first in the draft (9-11-1-12), the total is 33. And then if you add all the numbers from the ping pong ball combination that won the Mystics the right to pick second (14-7-10-2) the total is 33 again! And, finally, if you add all the numbers from the ping pong balls that got Chicago the 3rd pick (12-9-4-8) . . . 33! Is it just us, or is this just a little too much of a coincidence? Spooky!

Kim Rodgers hit the floor tonight for the first time in her Terp career. She went 4 for 4 from 3 pt land. Kim ended up with 14 pts and looked pretty darn comfortable in the process. After one of her made baskets, KT gave her a big hug in the middle of the floor. (I think KT was just happy that Kim was hitting shots, because KT's shot was was off) What a great site to see.

I wonder what Dr. Charlie Epps would say about the probability of that happening. Probably .333333333333.
