For the first time this season, the young Terps
took their show on the road and the experience can be characterized in a few words: a Mississippi State rout
to the #25-ranked Bulldogs, the Terps managed to score only 55 points. So it appears that Maryland's offense wasn't exactly firing on all cylinders.
Meanwhile, the Terps gave up 84 points . . . including 43 points (a career high) to MSU Senior Guard Alexis Rack. (Now that's what we call racking up points!) So it would seem that Maryland's defense needs a little work.
Not a single Terps player scored in double figures, which means that the position of Maryland go-to player is still open and applications are still being accepted.
Perhaps it was a good thing that the promised audio broadcast from Starkville did not materialize. When your favorite team ends up losing 84-55, it's painful enough just following periodic score updates on line. Listening to the play-by-play of such carnage might have been more than we could bear.
But in other news, the BasketCases' oldest nephew got married yesterday up in Yonkers, New York. So we had fun traveling this weekend even if the Terps did not.
