Sorry We Missed It!

One of the BCs was a bit under the weather today, so we didn't make it to the Terps' second -- and final -- exhibition game, a 101-43 nail-biter win over the Catholic University "Cardinals." (Hmm, maybe next time CU should send the Pontiffs!)

This was another game in which every Maryland player got plenty of minutes (18 or more to be exact); in which every Maryland player scored (at least twice); in which 6 Maryland players finished in double figures; and in which two Maryland players notched double-doubles. RS Freshman Jackie Nared "doubled up" with 12 pts & 15 rbs, and Freshman Tianna Hawkins -- now 2 games into her college career -- posted her second double-double with 12 pts & 11 rbs.

Thus ends the exhibition season. Next up, a real D-I opponent, which should test the team a bit more, we would expect, than tonight's D-III frolic.

But while we wait for Saturday's 7 PM home opener against North Carolina Central, we can still get a little Terps fix on TV this week. Staying home this evening (spending quality time with the tissue box) allowed the BCs to check out the listings on Comcast SportsNet and confirm that Under the Shell, our favorite TV show (well, maybe tied for favorite with The Big Bang Theory), will be premiering this Thursday at 9:30 PM on CSN. (A helpful reader already posted this information in a comment to our previous post; and indeed Ms/Mr Anonymous is correct. Thank you!) So tune in or set your DVR (or both) . . . you wouldn't want to miss this season's first episode.

To recap: TV on Thursday. Live regular-season action on Saturday. In other words, lots of excitement on tap later this week!

Wednesday morning update: The Washington Post's Camille Powell takes a look at the new and "unproven" Terps in an interesting season preview here.

Also home under the weather, but extremely happy to find the game on TerpTV on my laptop. Claims the Bowie game was also shown, did not confirm in the archive. And other than the sound being a bit problematic, it was nice to watch.

I enjoyed the article about Brenda & the girls in the Post on Wed.
