Maryland's basketball game on the road tonight at Boston College wasn't telecast, but the USA vs Canada gold medal ice hockey game was. Which is why, we confess, instead of listening to the audio broadcast of the Terps, we watched the Olympics instead. So about all we can tell you regarding the basketball game is what we gleaned from occasional glances at Gametracker, which we had open on our laptop as we watched TV. In other words, not much.

Unfortunately, about the only thing we can say with authority is that the Terps lost to the Eagles, 83-70. The link to the box score should tell you the rest.

Also unfortunately, tonight's loss ices Maryland's chances at finishing at .500 in ACC play. The Terps now stand at 5-8 with only one regular season game remaining. (Which means that Maryland will definitely be playing on Thursday, along with the 7 other lowest seeds, in Greensboro.)

In other news, Team Canada iced Team USA (2-0) to claim the gold medal. All in all, a good night for teams from up North . . . and a not so good one for teams (and their fans) from further south. Let's hope this geographical trend holds . . . as Maryland will host one of the southern-most teams in the ACC conference, #9 ranked Florida State on Sunday in the Terps' final appearance this season at Comcast.

Go Terps, Beat the 'Noles

Just a quick note to tell you that Maryland definitely battled tonight but BC came to play. It was senior night for them and they were raining threes. It was also an extremely physical game and the refs were about the worst we've seen so far this season. They were bad on both ends of the court and I was seriously concerned about the players' safety as the game progressed and the chippy play escalated. Lots of players hit the floor hard and it was just all around ugly. Free throws were a bit better which was nice but it just wasn't in the cards tonight. Let's hope this gives them much more motivation for senior night at Comcast on Sunday!

Why is there a starting player who hardly ever scores?

Take your pick- one who can't score or one who can't defend? I don't put too much into who starts.

Any truth to any of the stuff posted on the site noted below or is it just irrational lunacy?

Go to Forums list, then TSR Sports Board, and then "Truth about D Liles."

Seems like a bunch of silliness. DLiles did get kicked off of the team for not meeting the standards academically. The rest seems silly.

Hoping for a big crowd tomorrow at the FSU game. Go Terps! This would be a big win and would go a long way for making the NCAA's.
