More to Come!

Good news for the Terps -- and their fans: the 2009-10 season is not over yet! Tonight, the Terps were invited to the post-season WNIT. This was not a surprise. It was a pretty good bet that, having failed (though not by much) to beat Duke in Greensboro, the Terps were unlikely to be returning to the NCAA Tournament this year. And while it appears that some coaches consider a WNIT bid beneath them, thankfully Coach B doesn't feel that way. To the contrary, playing in a post-season tournament, where you must win to advance and a loss means you are finished for the year, will be great experience for this young team and will stand them in good stead for the future.

The news gets even better. Not only will the Terps be playing again this week, but they'll be playing at home, as they take on Iona of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference at Comcast on Friday night at 7 PM in the WNIT's first round. You can find the full bracket (pdf) here.

Ticket information is on the Terps' web site, here. Note that "Season ticket holders have until NOON on Wednesday, March 17 to reserve their same seats before all seats are made available to the general public."

Be there! Go Terps! Beat Iona!

Glad to see the Terps are continuing their season. They deserve it. Thanks for posting the link to Coach Stringer's surprising comments. That's one way to motivate your team!
By the way, congratulations to the Georgetown women's basketball team on their first NCAA bid in 17 years. Go Hoyas!
BCs, any chance you'll cover the Hoyas during the postseason?

Dear Anonymous,

"cover the Hoyas?" Though we wish them well in the Tourney, no, we're afraid not. (We will be covering the Terps in the WNIT.)

but, tell you what...we promise that next season we will attend 1 game at McDonough and blog about it!

Dear BCs,

I understand, but I'm holding you to your promise to attend a game next season. Just to warn you though, McDonough is no Comcast Center. :-)

We've been to McDonough many times. You're right, it's no Comcast Center! :-)
