Maryland’s John Auslander has a future on the bench

By the time the coach had fetched his girlfriend from the airport, sat through traffic and finally reached the gym at the University of Maryland, his intramural team was winning by 26 points. This pleased the coach greatly. It meant his practice plan had worked. “It must be the walk-through we had earlier,” John Auslander said, smiling as he hurried toward the sideline. Several...

Maryland Posts Photo Of Team “Zaching” To Honor Manager Who Passed Away

The Maryland men’s basketball team will begin play in the ACC Tournament Thursday afternoon, and they’ll do so with heavy hearts. Former team manager Zach Lederer died Tuesday evening after a lengthy battle with brain cancer.  Lederer was an inspiration to nearly everyone he came to know. His signature pose, a flexing of his arms, went viral, and many over the years have mimicked...

For Maryland men’s basketball’s scout team, constant change has become the norm

Before another practice of pretending to be other people, the eight members of the Maryland men’s basketball scout team were lounging around the Comcast Center bench when assistant coach Dustin Clark walked up and slapped hands with each. Two days were left until the trip to North Carolina State and there was much work to be done. “All right,” Clark said. “Let’s walk through...

ACC Morning Linkfest 4/3

This will likely be the final "Morning Linkfest" of the season as all of the current ACC teams have been eliminated from postseason tournaments.  Maryland lost to Iowa 71-60 in the Postseason NIT semifinal on Tuesday evening.  The Terps created too big of a hole early on due to turnovers and weren't able to dig out.  Baylor won the other postseason NIT semifinal...

ACC Morning Linkfest 3/21 with Game Sim Predictions

March Madness is finally here.  Yes, technically it started on Tuesday night (and the basketball wasn't half bad to watch in the First Four), but now it really starts.  If you missed it yesterday, Game Sim predicted its national champion, and clearly President Obama uses Game Sim to make picks.  While the NCAA Tournament starts today, the ACC has another day to wait with...

ACC Morning Linkfest 3/20

The ACC played 3 games on Tuesday night with Virginia and Maryland winning and FSU losing its NIT opener to Louisiana Tech.  The Terps were asleep the first 20 minutes of action with Niagara and were tied at 35.  The second half was another story as Maryland started the half on a 21-3 run and ultimately won 86-70.  Virginia wasn't quite as dominant against Norfolk State...

ACC Morning Linkfest 3/12

Other than the normal excitement of the upcoming ACC tournament and of course our own ACC Tournament Bracket Contest, the lead story was the announcement of the All-ACC teams.  Its hard to argue with the selected teams, in fact let's save the arguing for when the individual awards come out.  The big news that came out overnight is that it appears to be pretty certain that...

ACC Morning Linkfest 3/11 - Bracket Contest Edition

The ACC regular season is over and the last game of the regular season was quite the interesting one.  Maryland held as much as a 17 point lead and led by 13 at halftime, but even then you felt like Virginia had a chance.  I even tweeted at half that Virginia was going to win the game.  The Cavaliers did in fact go on to win in overtime, thanks in large part to a Maryland offense...

ACC Morning Linkfest 2/28 with Game Sim Predictions

Wednesday's ACC action went about as expected while there was a big upset elsewhere in college basketball once again.  The Miami Hurricanes answered my call for a blowout win to confirm they are deserving of a high seed, possibly a #1, in the NCAA Tournament.  I mentioned yesterday that after a few games where Miami had struggled there would be no reason for struggles at...

The big news from Monday was that the ACC released the 2013 football schedule.  You can see the full ACC football schedule here as well as schedules for each ACC team.  I will say it is odd to see Syracuse and Pittsburgh among teams listed in the ACC now, but maybe even stranger to see Maryland still on the football schedule.

A win is a win and the Miami Hurricanes are still undefeated in conference play.  Sure, Miami scored just 45 points in their win over Clemson and sure the Tigers missed two chip shots that would've tied it.  Yes, Miami caught a break when Clemson was called for a charge in the final minute.   That said, Kenny Kadji hit a big shot and Miami made the plays it took to win the...

Clemson won on the road last night 56-53 at Georgia Tech in a game I'm glad I didn't watch.  The Tigers moved to 5-7 in the ACC while Georgia Tech drops to 3-8 in league play.  I do know the score at halftime was 20-15, let that marinate for a second.  The quality of play took a small step forward in the second half and the Tigers enough plays to pull out a win.  Check...

Virginia continued their recent high level of play on Tuesday night with a 73-55 win over rival Virginia Tech.  While Virginia's defense typically gets the headlines in the media, its the offense that has taken a step forward lately.  In the Cavaliers first 21 games this season, they finished with an offensive efficiency greater than 120 in 4 games.  With Virginia's win...
