Happy Thanksgiving!

As the BCs expected they would, the Terps this afternoon bounced back from their upset on Saturday at St. Joe's, thoroughly drubbing the American University Eagles at Comcast Center, 94-54, thereby giving Terps fans a very happy start to their Thanksgiving holiday.

To their credit, the Eagles fought hard, but were simply overmatched.  With the game never in doubt, Coach B used the opportunity to give her three freshmen plenty of minutes, and they all made the most of them.  Starting at PG for the first time, Chloe Pavlech dished out 8 assists (with only 2 TOs), Malina Howard poured in 17 points and grabbed 7 boards, and Tierney Pfirman notched 9 points of her own.  It was great to see the newbies out there getting so comfortable on the court.  On the veteran end of things, T-Hawk had another huge game, scoring 25 points in 25 minutes (and just missing out on a double-double with 9 rebounds). Alicia DeVaughn also scored in double figures (16), and, like T, was 1 rebound short of a double-double.

The Terps now get to spend a very happy Thanksgiving at home, before heading off to Lincoln, Nebraska next week for their part of this year's Big Ten-Big Ten ACC Challenge.

The BCs wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Glad to see Brenda's comments after the game. It was very clear Mincy and Thomas were struggling trying to play PG. Chloe will struggle but they don't have any others options right now. It's unfortunate with such a talented team that they are so incredibly thin at such a key position. But, that's the way it is. I'll pray for a miracle against unconn. Hopefully it's not a beat down on national tv. It wouldn't have been with Brene.

Will be interesting to see if Brenda can keep Brene and Lexie all 4 yrs. with MD's track record of kids leaving their program, can Brenda keep 2 great PG's without 1 leaving. I'm hoping she can.
