Terps 72 Kentucky 64
Leading scorer Dez Wells with 22.
Can't wait for tomorrow. Good luck.
Seth Allen with game winner.
If Maryland wins it won't be by more than four or five points. The only way Maryland will keep this game close is if Archie and Ryan have a bunch of turnovers. I understand you guy's are Maryland fans Terps but you guy's are acting as if Wells is this dominate player, we are way too athletic to give up 72 to you guy's. Plus our bigs are going to be big in this game especially Noel and Stein, I think Alex is going to struggle a bit but in the end UK will win by double figures.
I'll go with ....
Your team. All the time.
We have a couple freshman who are super thick. Charlie Mitchell is a rebounding machine. Shaq cleare dunked on Noel's in an aau match and has said he plans to do it again. But it's Len and Padgett who I expect to be the keys. Len has a big impact on the defensive end just like Anthony Davis did for you guys last year. He isn't as good as Davis but is still very athletic for a 7 footer. Padgett is our senior leader is an outstanding offensive rebounder and is from Brooklyn. He'll be playing in front of 200 friends and family. Both our teams have a lot of new faces and are young and I expect this to be a good game. But I expect our sophomores Wells, Len, and Faust to give us the edge. And 0 chance there is a back court more athletic than Allen, Wells, and Faust.
Terps 2001 I went to this sites sister for Maryland fans during the Harrison saga and tried to ask some legit ?s and not once did I say anything negative about Terps B-ball and they gave me so many votes that I was banned for a month from that site. So forgive me when I say "BLAH,BLAH,BLAH.

1. PLayer dunking on another player doesn't mean $4!T. WCS got dunked on against Transy. We still won the game by 46 points.
2. Len will not have defensive impact like Anthony Davis, just STOP. The guy averaged 2.1 bpg last year. He isn't anything like Davis. Once you become like A. Davis, the offensive strategies is to have him no where near the ball. Yet he still managed 4.7. That's like Len to averaging 5.5 - 6 bpg in similar situation. Not EVEN CLOSE.
3. Being more athletic does not = Winning. If that was the case, Clippers would be your NBA champions, and they are not. It does help so, but you need balance of outside shooting, mid range shooting, interior offense, and etc.
To be honest, this will be close game. However, things you said really doesn't mean much. Some are just stupid wrong like your point 2.
