It's funny, I read a story by CSN that was saying that the Terps were forcing too many shots, etc. I didn't see that. I saw them missing tons of open jumpers, and some wide open 3's. Some nights, the shots just don't fall. PSU is another one of those "tweener" teams that the Terps have struggled with this year, but that really wasn't it. They were running the offense, efficiently and not turning it over. The Terps were tight, and also getting out rebounded - some of which were just unlucky bounces due to PSU's bricklaying skills.
To me this win was one of the most impressive, if not for coming back from 13 down with 6 minutes to go, but even for Turg's coaching. He coached this team up in this one. I saw a team playing very smart in the second half, realizing that with their shots not falling, it was time to dish it off inside to Stone, and let the big man(kid) take over. And boy did he ever! Trimble was struggling with his shot, but he did a marvelous job of penetrating and finding Stone, whom PSU had no answer for.
Back in 1998, the Terps were down by 18 to Wake with 3 minutes to go, and came back to win. This game reminded me a lot of that. The run to end the game was most impressive, when things evened out and the shots started falling.
The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.
