No. 5 Ohio State blows Terps away

In Wednesday night’s 76-60 loss to the No. 5 Ohio State Buckeyes (7-0), the Maryland Terrapins (5-3) were clearly outclassed.

The recurring issues of turnovers and missed foul shots were there all night. However, the most troubling part of the game was Maryland’s refusal to run its offense.

Terps blowout Niagara to advance to second round of NIT

Nick Faust recorded his first career double-double as the Terps blew out the Niagara Purple Eagles 86-70 in their first round game of the National Invitational Tournament.

Faust was all over the place with 15 points and 11 rebounds. He also got help from senior guard Logan Aronhalt and freshman Seth Allen who both had 15 points.

Dez Wells added 12 points for the hot-shooting Terps.

In a game that started slowly and was tied at halftime, Maryland’s size and depth appeared to wear down Niagara in the second half.

Maryland will host either Denver or Ohio Thursday night.

Terps knocked out of ACC Tournament by North Carolina

A great effort by the Maryland Terrapins wasn’t enough Saturday afternoon. North Carolina beat the Terps 79-76 in the ACC Tournament semifinals.

Alex Len continued to play well and Dez Wells had a stellar second half, but the Terps fell a Logan Aronhalt 3-pointer short.

James Michael McAdoo, Reggie Bullock and the rest of North Carolina led from the beginning to advance to the ACC Tournament finals.

It’ll be interesting to see if the Terps will be invited to the NCAAs or NIT this season, but I don’t think so and they don’t really deserve it.

Terps move on to ACC quarterfinals

The Terps had higher hopes for this season, but with the ACC Tournament starting, Maryland still has a chance to make a push for the NCAA Tournament.

In their opening round game, Maryland struggled in the first half, but took care of the ball in the second half to put away the Wake Forest Demon Deacons 75-62.

Dez Wells took over the game with 21 points.

Maryland moves on to face Duke Friday night.

Tar Heels drop Maryland

Maryland’s NCAA hopes hinged on their last four games. They needed to win three of their last four. They’re not on the verge of losing three of their final four regular season games.

The Terps (20-10, 8-9 Atlantic Coast Conference) failed to beat another quality opponent Wednesday night as the North Carolina Tar Heels (22-8, 12-5) blasted Maryland 79-68 Wednesday night.

North Carolina shot the ball well and were much quicker than the Terps.

Maryland closes the regular season at Virginia Sunday evening.
