Terrapin Takes, 6/4: Create A Terps Basketball Team, Jimmy V.

  • writer Alex Kirshner has provided any Maryland fan with hour of entertainment when he invoked the “Build Your All-Time Basketball Team” game. This is legitimately awesome, and I’ve still been having a hard time picking which point guard I want to run with. My Blake – Dixon backcourt leaves my frontcourt dangerously thin.
  • Maryland’s been devastated by transfers all season long, and it looks like they’re being hit with another one (kind of). Alex Prewitt, the Washington Post’s Maryland beat writer, is officially moving on to becoming the Washington Capitals beat writer. He’ll be missed in this sphere, and hopefully Roman Stubbs (his replacement) can fill in admirably for the Terps.
  • The Terrapins pulled out of the Jimmy V. Classic due to some scheduling issues, according to reports. They’re going to be replaced by Illinois. All this kind of stinks for a couple reasons: 1.) Jimmy V. Classic is a highly competitive tournament 2.) It’s for a great cause. Maryland now has to replace a top fifty opponent in Villanova on the schedule, though that might not be a bad thing. This team is young, and throwing them to the wolves early could prove to be disastrous for this team. (Baltimore Sun)
  • Art Ferrer, TSMD’s Portuguese soccer expert in residence, provides us with an awesome look at what the two Terps on USA soccer need to do in order to help this team advance past an incredibly tough group.
