Terps To Host Red-White Scrimmage Saturday


Haven’t gotten a chance to see the men’s basketball team play yet? or did you only get to watch them throw some alley-oops during Maryland Madness? Well, now you get the opportunity to see them live and in person this weekend.

According to UMTerps.com, the Red – White intrasquad scrimmage with be held at Comcast Center about 2 1/2 hours before the homecoming kick-off against Clemson over at Byrd. That is to say, be there by one if you want the best seat. I’d suggest going if only because it will be a healthy distraction before what you will soon witness against Clemson. If you don’t have high hopes for the football team, at least you can get excited about Dez Wells throwing down thunder dunks off a pass from Roddy Peters.

The Terrapins are inching ever closer to their November 8th matchup against Connecticut at the Barclay’s Center (one of the finest arenas I’ve ever seen). With new guys like Evan Smotrycz and Roddy Peters coupled with a brand new, leaner Shaquille Cleare, this team might take some getting used to. Alex Len is off to the NBA now, and the new look Terps are going to require close examination.

In the meantime, roll Terps.
