Found November 10, 2012 on SCACC Hoops:
Some quick thoughts on Maryland's 72-69 loss to Kentucky. Whoever said it in an earlier thread, was right:  Charles Mitchell IS the new Charles Barkley.  Kid was born to rebound.  LOVE HIM Seth Allen will start at PG before the new year.  Kid is a baller.  He knows how to feed the paint.  He's quick and can shoot.  Pe'shon will be coming off the bench. Nick Faust plays like this is HIS team when he's at best the third best player on the team. Dez Wells is a leader.  He probably played his worst game of the year for us. What can you say about Alex Len other than he is likely to be a lottery pick.  This is probably the last year we will have him.  His improvement is startling.  He's dominant. Terps will probably get Top 25 votes this week even with the loss.  This game was a coming out party.  Terps announced their presence on the national stage tonight. Maryland will probably not get outrebounded all season but they will definitely shoot better. Jake Layman MUST lose the Blaine Gabbert haircut. Looking at the schedule, I think Maryland will be 15-1 heading into the NC State.  Schedule is weak but tell me that you disagree with me after what you just saw? I've never felt so good about a Terp loss in my entire life.   This article was originally published at http://www.Turtle-Soup.com.
