By The Numbers
The BCs were looking forward to listening to the live audio broadcast of Maryland's game at Virginia Tech this afternoon, but thanks to an epic fail by CBSsports.com, all we had was a Toyota commercial. Fortunately, the Hokies had a great live stats page, so at least we got to follow the "action" by the numbers.
Good Numbers: Maryland routed the Hokies, 74-45. Alyssa Thomas had a monster game: 26 points, 18 rebounds, and 6 assists, notching her double-double with more than 4 minutes left in the first half. Other Terps finishing in double figures: T-Hawk (14), freshman Tierney Pfirman, who had a terrific outing with 11 points (including 2 of 3 from behind the arc) and 7 boards, and Katie Rutan (11, including a perfect 2 of 2 threes).
Bad Number: 22 Maryland turnovers. Ugh. (And too many first half fouls!)
Interesting Number: 1:47: the time left in the final period when Volleyballer Caitlin Adams entered the game.
The Terps are now 4-1 in the ACC. Their next game is at home against NC State on Thursday; tip-off is at the (too) late hour of 8:30 PM.
Go Terps . . . Beat the Wolfpack!
