It's no secret that the young Terps haven't yet played well on the road. Something about being outside the familiar comforts of the Comcast Center seems to have rattled this team, causing them to lose focus and play below their potential. So it's with some trepidation that we look ahead to Monday's match-up against the Cavaliers in Charlottesville. Tomorrow's game not only brings the pressure of playing against a good Virginia team -- in the John Paul Jones arena, in front of what is likely to be a large, loud, orange-clad crowd of Wahoos . . . but it's also being broadcast on national TV.

We can only hope that between Thursday's rout in Raleigh and tomorrow evening, Coach B and her assistants have been able to help the young Terps get past their ACC-opening-night jitters and realize that a basketball game is still just a basketball game -- whether it's played in College Park, or Charlottesville or wherever.

We believe this young Maryland team has talent; and we certainly believe they are capable of a better showing on the road than they displayed against NC State. We'll be watching. And a better showing is what we're hoping to see . . . tomorrow (Monday) at 7:30 PM on ESPN2.

Go Terps! Beat the Cavs!

Basket Cases,

Do you know if Marissa Coleman still plays for the team in Italy? Schio. I don't see her in the box score when they play anymore. Just curious if you guys knew anything.

Good luck Lady Terps. Hoping for a competitive game.

I think Marissa hurt her ankle.

Good Luck to the Ladies tonight. I am an avid Mystics fan, so I have learned a lot about losing. But I still supported the Mystics no matter what they did, never booed them, always cheered and clapped. That is what this young Terps team need. No "fair-weather" fans, but fans who will support them, encourage them, and then reap the rewards. To all you in the previous blog who complained, don't come back in 2 years and say that you knew they would win and be this good.
