Wake Forest at Maryland

Wake Forest Maryland

The ACC schedule is wonderful in that it offers near immediate opportunities to bounce back from defeats.  Yet, for those teams with issues that have not been fixed; losses can stack up in a hurry.

The Terps hung in but never really gave me the sense that they could be NC State on Sunday.  Wake should not present that same problem but they are frisky, not to mention undefeated in the ACC.

Hopefully, the fans will finally come out and fill Comcast to aid our Terps in their effort to gain their first ACC victory. Last weekend proved that no games are promised as many of the favorites went down. 

The Terps need to figure out how to get consistency from someone on the interior. Stoglin is amazing and Len is doing wonders cleaning up misses; but no one is creating opportunities in the paint.  Padgett has done it flashes, but he lacks the finishing touch. 

Free throw shooting and turnovers are the other two bugaboos that must be dealt with.  Turgeon must be at his wits end regarding both.  Howard must be more decisive and dribble less. 

For Wake's part, they are a statistical twin of the Terps.  Both teams average roughly the same in points and assists per game.  Wake shoots a slightly better percentage, while MD is the better rebounding team.

The game will be close, but the Terps should hold on down the stretch.

Jeff Bzdelik wasn’t being paranoid when he said the whole world is against him and his basketball team.

Instead he was just being a coach.

To those who say the two terms are interchangeable, I’ll submit that I’ve worked with a string of coaches at Wake who have proven differently. But every coach I’ve ever known here or anywhere would use pretty much anything he or she could write on blackboard to get another victory, another strong effort, even another point, from their team.

And what Bzdelik is using with increasing frequency is the notion that nobody on the planet is giving the Deacons a chance at anything. He sounded the theme loud and clear at yesterday’s practice attended also by my esteemed colleague Edward G. Robinson III of the Raleigh News and Observer.

“The world gives us no chance,’’ Bzdelik said. “The outside world gives us no chance. But all we’re concerned about is our little world right inside here within our team. There’s a reason you play the game. So all we can control is how hard we play, how well we play and our mindset. And we’ll just take it one game at a time and all I can say is we’re going to show up.
