Johns Hopkins is nursing a 24-20 lead in this series thanks to North Carolina winning eight of the past nine meetings. Five of those nine games were decided by three goals or fewer, and the Tar Heels have won the last three contests at Homewood Field.
From a lethargic pace on offense to a carelessness with the ball to a lack of concentration on clears, there¿s much No. 8 Johns Hopkins can pick and choose when it comes to studying what factors contributed to Saturday¿s 9-8 loss at No. 6 Loyola Maryland. Coach Dave Pietramala wants to see if the Blue Jays heave learned from their miscues.
In the roughly three weeks since National Signing Day, Maryland's coaching staff hasn't slowed down at all on the recruiting trail. The Terps are doling out plenty of offers all over the country, and while the staff hasn't gotten its first commitment in the Class of 2017 yet, Maryland is making an impression on prospective recruits.
What was once viewed as a disturbing trend for a Maryland men's basketball team many are still picking to reach the Final Four has suddenly become a bright red flag for the now-No.6 Terps. There is a common theme that Maryland (22-4, 10-3 Big Ten) repeated in Saturday's 70-57 loss to Wisconsin at Xfinity Center. The Terps were done in by a series of first-half turnovers, a lack of 3-point defense and an inability to rebound.
Taylor Cummings (McDonogh) had a career-high five caused turnovers, scored four goals and added two assists and four ground balls as the No. 1 Maryland women's lacrosse team defeated William & Mary, 19-7, on Sunday afternoon in the season opener for both teams.
Lefty Driesell will find out Friday if he will become a finalist for the third time after making it that far in 2003, the year he retired from coaching. Should that happen, he will learn during this year's Final Four if he finally gets in.
Should Maryland get to No. 1 in the latest Top 25 rankings by either the Associated Press or USA Today Sports released Monday afternoon, it will mark the first time in program history that the Terps occupy the top spot during the season.
Eighteen months after the University of Maryland's jump to the Big Ten, the conference's television network is eagerly trying to make Terps fans feel more at home in their sprawling new neighborhood — an Illinois-based league with deep Midwestern roots.
Maryland's two-time defending national champion women's lacrosse team was selected No. 1 team in the Inside Lacrosse media poll and the Interscholastic Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association poll. both announced Tuesday.
Walt Bell got his first offensive coordinator job at Arkansas State at age 29. He'll be 32 when Maryland kicks off against Howard at Maryland Stadium on Sept. 3 in his first game as the Terps offensive coordinator. And soon enough, some who have coached him think he'll be leading his own program.
The irony was not lost on the Maryland fans who made the trek out to Michigan State for their first-ever game at the Breslin Center. It wasn't exactly balmy in East Lansing on Saturday morning, but there wasn't even a single flake to be found.
Maryland coach DJ Durkin finalized his coaching staff last week with the hiring of offensive line coach Dave Borbely. In the process of hiring nine assistants, Durkin combined elements of experience and youth, along with recruiting prowess and coaching talent. It¿s an impressive staff on paper.
The question bounced around Young Dining Hall in the Gossett Team House at Maryland on Tuesday afternoon and meant something different to each of the three former head coaches and the young, rising offensive coordinator speaking publicly as members of the Terps coaching staff for the first time. Why Maryland? Why coach DJ Durkin? Why now? For associate head coach and defensive line coach Mike London, assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Pete Lembo, defensive coordinator Scott
Head up, eyes searching, Maryland point guard Melo Trimble dribbled a few feet past midcourt Sunday when he found freshman center Diamond Stone motoring down the lane, running full speed toward the basket. Trimble kept moving. As two Marshall defenders came toward him, Trimble snapped a perfect one-hand bounce pass through a maze of arms to Stone for a two-handed dunk. The evolution of one of college basketball's best point guards continued.
Jim Valvano will be there in spirit Tuesday night when No. 6 Maryland (7-1) plays Connecticut (5-2) — the school that gave Valvano his first big-time coaching job as an assistant — in the featured game of the Jimmy V Classic.
The Big Ten was not supposed to keep its winning streak going over the ACC this season in their annual early December matchup. What could bode well for the league¿s overall power ranking -- and perhaps not so well for those Maryland fans who thought the No. 2 Terps were going to have it easy this winter -- is that the Big Ten improved to 5-0-2 against the ACC over the past seven years.
The Maryland men's basketball team couldn't fly out immediately after Tuesday's 89-81 loss at North Carolina because its private plane got grounded due to fog. The nearly five-hour drive was spent decompressing after the loss to the No. 9 Tar Heels, catching up on sleep and studies, as well as doing some early preparation for Friday's game against Saint Francis (Pa.) at Xfinity Center.
Austin Kraisser, already a two-time state champion and three-time Howard County and 4A-3A East region champion and state finalist, has staked his claim to being not only the top wrestler in the area, but the state.
Robert Carter Jr. has been one of Maryland¿s most consistent players this season, scoring in double figures every game (13.0 average, second behind Melo Trimble) and the team¿s top rebounder (7.0 per game). One of the reasons Carter left Georgia Tech after two years was to expand his game and become more of a ¿stretch-4¿ -- a shooting power forward -- than a traditional back-to-the-basket player.
In what was the conclusion to the Cancun tournament that the Terps had seemingly won by taking the trophy home from the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, Maryland needed more than 30 minutes to pull away from the Vikings, 80-63.
Building a 22-point lead during the first half of Wednesday night's Cancun Challenge championship game against Rhode Island at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, the second-ranked Terps led by 16 at halftime and cruised to an 86-63 victory. Maryland (5-0) will return home for Thanksgiving unbeaten and suddenly meshing.
