Zeller 20-23 from the charity stripe....REALLY
Terps won't even make NIT. They have a long long way to go.
This team simply lacks talent....which is an indictment of Gary Williams......and the real reason Gary retired. They have exactly one scorer on this team out of 8 scholarships and thats Stoglin. Turg has done a wonderful job of coaching with inferior talent....Gary should be ashamed of himself for the recruiting job he's done the last decade.
But the bottom line is, from this article - GW wanted a certain type of athlete. He did't cow-tow to all the fans (many of whom have no affiliation with the University) who wanted Gary to go after the one and done recruit, and to cozy up to the AAU handlers. No, that wasn't Gary's style. So, be careful what you wish for....lest the NCAA come knocking.
I'm wrong about GW not wanting/willing to go after the 1-and-done players, or to get into bed with sleezy AAU handlers? Ummmm, not wrong about that, either. He wasn't. I never viewed it as laziness, it was just a philosophical approach in the type of player he wanted. There's quite a few coaches in the BiG that fall into the same mold.
As far as comparing GW to Turg - well, we'll have to see? I tend to take a longterm view of things, so when Turg pulls in a strong class, or two, that really doesn't make it for me. We'll see if he can do it year, after year....and then, we'll see if he's half the motivator and floor general that Gary was? We'll have to see what Turg can do when he finally gets the players he wants? You can have all the talent you want, but if you can't get everyone to buy into your vision, with everyone pulling in the same direction....you may get into the NCAA, but it will be short lived. We'll see?

And now back out of it, and clawing back.
Two years in a row with terrible free throw shooting.
