Fact: Maryland is ranked No. 1 and undefeated at 5-0. Opinion: The Terps are playing nasty defense, but without offensive improvement I will be surprised if they capture the NCAA title. They've been heavily reliant on three players - Mike Chanenchuk ripping the net from the outside, Charlie Raffa winning faceoffs and Niko Amato in goal - but they're not a team quite yet that appears to be built on offense to win two games in three days on Memorial Day weekend. The outstanding freshman class must continue to improve.
