Final Score: Maryland 75, College of Charleston 74
- Pe’Shon, Pe’Shon, Pe’Shon. TT coined MVPe, and it’s an apt nickname. Combined with the continued struggles of Adrian Bowie, I’d be absolutely shocked if Howard wasn’t Maryland’s starting point guard by the end of the month.
- Sean Mosley still has his struggles. He played a very, very lazy game on both sides of the ball; it was a disheartening effort.
- Cliff Tucker can play some serious defense. D1scourse wrote of his effectiveness against the unstoppable Andrew Goudelock – and Tucker asked to guard him. That’s the kind of senior leadership this team needs.
- The Terps are really struggling in the area of big men depth. Dino Gregory got in foul trouble, and there was no consistent option off the bench to replace him. Weijs and Padgett both had their moments, but Gary chose to implement a small lineup for the majority of the time Dino was out.
- Other than that, we really didn’t learn anything. Jordan played very well, the freshmen had the same kind of games they did against Seattle; ultimately, it was just a much better opponent. For now, let’s all just be happy that the Terps are 2-0, not the 1-1 they could so easily be.
MVP(e): Even though Jordan Williams had the best night statistically, with 26 points and 15 rebounds, Pe’Shon Howard is the MVP, without a doubt in my mind. He wore the 21 jersey proudly, and continues to impress Terps fans everywhere.
