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...

The Maryland men’s basketball team will begin play in the ACC Tournament Thursday afternoon, and they’ll do so with heavy hearts.

For the Terps, an under-control and self-aware Seth Allen is best

Something clicked for Seth Allen when bonus basketball came, and maybe it wasn’t a conscious decision for Maryland’s starting point guard. He had been his usual self for 40 minutes, alternating absurdly athletic sieges on the paint with questionably quick shots early in possessions. But when those final five minutes rolled around and the Terrapins needed someone to lift them...

Why does Maryland lead ACC in fouls? It's simple

Remember that statistic about Maryland leading the ACC is fouls called against them? It came courtesty of CSN stats guru Mike Lynch, who found that the Terrapins were called for 20.9 per game in ACC play, close to a full foul more than the next team, Wake Forest, which piles up an even 20. Conspiracy theorists rejoiced. Here’s the proof, right?! But there’s actually a pretty...

Maryland’s competing now, but issues at the point keep popping up

Maryland was in danger of missing the NCAA tournament before Monday night’s visit from No. 4 Syracuse, and while their 57-55 loss doesn’t really damage an already weak profile, what it does is take away yet another opportunity to make themselves look better in the eyes of the committee. The Terps have now lost three of their last four games and four of their last six. All four...

Maryland pumped for showdown with sinking Syracuse

As a parting gift to Maryland, the Atlantic Coast Conference didn't schedule the Terrapins to face North Carolina or Duke at home. So the first sellout of the season at Comcast Center on Monday night will be for a game against ACC newcomer Syracuse, a matchup that lost a bit of its luster after the previously unbeaten Orange lost two straight last week.

Terps’ Charles Mitchell moves on after Duke heartbreak

Before games, Maryland forward Charles Mitchell switches his iPhone into “airplane mode,” a ritual that serves a more psychological purpose than practical. The cellphone hides in the locker room, with little possibility of distracting him while the action unfolds, but perhaps simply the thought of blocking calls and text messages offers peace of mind. Sometimes, when Mitchell...
