Maryland Impressed by UConn
No. 18 UConn Men's Basketball Ready To Open 2013-14 Season Against Maryland
Maryland, Georgetown again take center stage on college basketball's opening night
Barclays Center to Open 2013-14 College Basketball Season with Maryland and Connecticut
The Terps kick this season off in a few hours and excitement is building throughout Terpland.
A couple things to watch for...
Last year, Alex Len dominated Kentucky and Terp fans everywhere thought we'd see that for the rest of the year. We were wrong. The lesson: don't take anything that happens tonight too seriously.
Have last year's freshman blossomed into reliable consistent contributors? In particular, I'd like to Jake Layman and Chuck Mitchell step up.
Can Maryland maintain an interior defensive presence without Alex Len blocking shots? What about rebounding? Will Mitchell, Cleare, and Dodd compete or even dominate? I've said it before, Chuck Mitchell is the most natural rebounding talent I've ever seen in a Terp uniform. Can he realize some of that potential this season?
Will Nick Faust play to his strengths or continue to force things offensively. Will Faust become the shut down defender we know he can be?
Can Dez Wells lead the offense without turning the ball over more than 3 times per game?
Can Maryland win a close game down the stretch?
Prediction: Maryland 72, UConn 69

BEST OF MAXIM
Before Nike and Oregon were assaulting football fans’ eyes with their outlandish uniforms, Under Armour and Maryland were pushing the envelope with the Terrapins’ apparel.
College basketball is back, and that means another chance for the Terps to redefine athletic tackiness. The ostentatious look will go all the way down to their shoes, literally, for Friday’s opener against...
Some quick hits on Maryland's loss to Connecticut...
-There are no moral victories.
-There were some things to be encouraged about but we all need to remember that Maryland STUNK for 32 minutes of the game.
-Faust is a Pee I Gee PIG. 18 shots! He made 5 of them. Faust is sure he is a crunch time guy. He's not. His shot selection is horrendous.
-Dez is not...
We’ve shown you some nice new kicks that will be worn by Nike schools USC and Duke for basketball season, but now it’s time for Under Armour to get in on the action. The Maryland Terrapins will continue with their ‘Maryland Pride’ uniform line, and will be wearing some slick new shoes tonight for their season opener (last year’s Maryland Pride shoes can be seen here):
COLLEGE PARK, Md.--Maryland red shirt junior Evan Smotrycz, sophomores Jake Layman and Shaquille Cleare talk about their expectations for the season opener against Connecticut on Friday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
COLLEGE PARK, Md.--Maryland head coach Randy Edsall talks after the Terps 20-3 loss to Syracuse.
The Orange traveled to College Park (Md.) to battle the injury riddled Maryland Terrapins, and came away with an important 20-3 road win behind a dominating defense.
