I think Melo has a case of self-inflicted head games going on.  His shot is gone.  The same guy who was making everything from everywhere all season long, the guy who would drain a step back jumper or come off a screen to hit the shot EVERY SINGLE TIME an opponent got momentum going... can't get anything to drop right now.  It's just strange.  And the rest of the team is pressing too.  The goofy thing Layman just did to try to dribble the length of the floor to make a statement is all mental.

Melo with an airball on a mid-range jumper with a chance to retake the lead... it's all mental right now...

Trimble has been in major funk for weeks ....

Has he blown his shot at a 1st round draft slot since he seriously can't be considered a wooden candidate anymore ....

Supposedly Trimble is fighting an injury, but that does not explain the way he is playing mentally.  Making idiotic decisions and turnovers.  The game essentially ended with another stupid decision on his part trying to force the ball to Layman with the chance to win instead of driving to the basket. 

 

Right now he is a major liability on the court and is the main reason the Terps have lost two in a row that they should not have lost.

Trimble, Carter and Stone will probably be back at Maryland next year, if they don't transfer to another school. Forget about the NBA for the three. They definitely need more seasoning before considering themselves ready for the NBA draft.

I seriously doubt Stone will be back. 50/50 on the other two but anyone with a first round projection would be stupid to stay.

Isn't Carter a Senior?

IMO seems like Turgeon is the polar opposite of Gary.Great recruiter bad coach.

Wild game against Michigan. Another team dropping a ridiculous number of threes, and Terps looked lost on defense. Trimble still playing reckless and stupid at times, but made the free throws in the end to seal it. Layman and Carter had good games. Crazy week for the top 10 teams.

the trey Mich hit with about ten seconds to go was nuts. 

 

Yes, it was, but Mich is the best 3 point shooting team in the conference, and I think they hit something like 14 of 27 for the game.  This game had me nervous because I knew if they got hot, and they did, that they would rain them down with abandon and present a real problem.  There is no defense against lights out shooting, and when the Terps tried, they started getting beat easily inside on pick and rolls. 

 

You could tell the Terps really, really wanted this game, and their hustle was definitely there, especially on the offensive boards.  Aside from another high turnover game(and again, Melo is just seemingly completely lost lately), they played pretty well and their offense was clicking.  Somehow, someway, Melo has to get his confidence back, and start making better decisions.  His shot was a bit better, but he's still not playing at a good enough level to go very far.  This team will go as he goes, meaning they can win it all if he plays to his potential, or they can be one and done if he plays as he is currently. 

 

I know they talk about him battling injury, but that doesn't explain the poor decision making, which he has been doing a ton of lately.  Most of his turnovers are lack of concentration, and making horrible decisions.  Turgeon has got to get this kid playing smarter.  Yesterday, prime example, with under 2 minutes to go, and a five point lead, instead of taking 20 - 25 seconds off of the clock, he hoists an early shot to try and be the big hero.  Dumb!  Mich scores right away, and it's a game again.  He single handedly lost the game against Minnesota, and did nothing right against Wisconsin.  He had 13 points yesterday, and hit those 2 FT's at the end to ice it, but at times it felt they were winning despite him.  It's good that Turg is getting Brantley some PT, because they are likely going to need him. 

 

On the flip side, Carter is looking more like an NBA first round pick(and getting higher).  Man that kid has some serious moves and size.  Stone I think really needs another year along with Trimble before he comes out.  He's got worlds of talent, but he's still not quite there yet.

10th in AP, 9th in USA Today.

 

Right where I figured.

They have to win out and get to the finals of the B10 tourney or maybe even win it to get a 2 seed.

Iowa dropped at home to Wisconsin in a terrific game, and is any team more frightening to play in the B1G than Wisconsin right now?  As inconceivable as it seemed a month ago, the Badgers are in contention for the league title.
