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, 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, 74-45Alyssa 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!

Does anyone know why Alicia DeVaughn only played 11 minutes? Is she OK?

I just read that Alicia was injured?!?! I really hope it's nothing serious for her sake (and ours, too). Glad to see you back, BCs.

She seemed to hurt her hip or knee in the Miami game so hopefully they're playing it safe.

Oh, BC's I miss you so, when you go! Thank you for feeding my hoops addiction! I keep saying I'm going to get to Comcast. At the beginning of the college season, I print out the schedule of each local women's team in the area. With big plans and great excitement, I highlight games that I know will be awesome- but alas-I don't often leave my warm house and my warm recliner chair!
You are my lifeline!! :) Please continue to provide the best (and often only coverage) anywhere!!

If I read the stats properly, Alicia started the game at center and totaled 11 minutes of play. In those 11 minutes, she scored zero points, got zero rebounds, committed three personal fouls and one turnover. I don't know if she is injured, but stats like that won't keep you out on the floor for very long. She's not had a particularly good year so far. Let's hope that there isn't any nagging injury of any kind that's preventing her from doing what we've seen she can do.

Speaking of injuries, check out the Baltimore Sun pice on Maryland recruit, Bri Jones, the 6'3" post player from Aberdeen, MD:,0,2473991.story . She may be the 4th MD player rehabbing an ACL next fall. (from Len)

Dear Anonymous Len,

Thanks for the link. Such disappointing news! Hope Bri gets the best care and makes a full and speeedy recovery.

(You think MD WBB can get her a volume discount on the ACL surgery? Just kidding.)
