Terps drop to 8th, which is more of a reflection of what happened this week in the Top 25 as much as anything else. It wasn't a good week for them, and particularly not a good week for Turgeon.
Losing to Michigan State in a close one on the road isn't the worst thing, but more it's the way they lost. For the second game in a row they got out hustled and out rebounded, something that absolutely should not have happened with their size advantage over MSU.
On the plus side, Trimble heated back up, but conversely, he got little help from Sulaimon, Laymen, and Stone. Again, there's a little too much passing going on, and not enough inside out play with penetration. I'm no coach, but it seems to me they are most effective when Trimble and Sulaimon are driving to the basket. Lately I keep expecting to hear Sweet Georgia Brown to come over the loudspeakers.
