Those merry band of Maryland hoopsters got off to their first fast start of the season against Vermont.
Then the Catamounts -- by the way, does anybody know what a Catamount is? -- went zone.
And the Terps zoned out.
Leading 16-7 after hitting six of its first seven shots and scoring on seven of its first eight possessions, Maryland has now scored on only two of its last 10 trips and has watched Vermont take a 26-23 lead.
Greivis Vasquez, who hit his first three shots, hasn't attempted any since Vermont -- coached by former Maryland assistant Mike Lonergan -- put his team in a 2-3.
Wait, the Terps might have figured it out. Cliff Tucker scored inside and Eric Hayes just hit a long three to give Maryland the lead back and sending the Catamounts -- why can't we call them the Ben-and-Jerrys -- to a timeout.
Get back to you a little later. I'm zoning out.
