Study: Trailing team should begin to foul at 25 secs+ (25 secs x the deficit); cc Coach Turgeon

In the past two games, the Terps have found themselves down 1 point, with about 45 seconds to play. Each time the opponent has been in the single bonus situation as well. In each instance, Mark...

Applying A 2013 NYU Study On "Roster Synergy" To Determine Ideal Terps Lineups, Substitution Patterns, Recruiting

I just came across this fascinating 2013 NYU-Polytech Study, published int he International Journal of Computer Science in Sport. To say the least, I am a pig in shit. First, the authors propose...

In Which, I Invent "Used Post Minutes Per Game" (spoiler: the Terps do not use their post players very often)

A lot has been made of what kind of offense Mark Turgeon is running. If you are interested in this question, I suggest you go see Doug Newton's fantastic fanpost breaking down our basic motion...

Reconciling Mark Turgeon's "Success" at Texas A&M and Wichita State with SRS data

It's no secret that I'm not a fan of Mark Turgeon. But, I also am troubled by the fact that he seemed to have success at Wichita State and Texas A&M. A brief recap of that success: After three...

Evaluating Turgeon and the players with advanced statistics

So, let me say that I was prepared to write a post in which I used advanced statistics to rail against Turge's lineup management. It turns out however that it's a bit of a mixed bag. First...

Terps need to play more zone defense

By now, a few things are clear about last year's team compared to this year's team. Virtually everyone recognises that we miss Len, in terms of our ability to challenge shots and in terms of...

What the analytics say we should have done after Stevie's drop

I made this point in a comments thread, but I think it bears amplification because I think it's become cliche to just assume that the analytics say that you should ALWAYS go for it when it's 4th...

It Became Clear This Week Just How Reckless The Move To The B1G Was For UMD (UPDATED 2X)

In short the situation is this: The Athletic Department has $21 million that it currently owes to the University. $20 million more is already in the pipeline. $52 million more would probably...

Where Darcy sees the NHL going

Ed Note: This FanPost has been edited slightly for front page posting. A big part of drafting, I would assert, is not just in hitting on the players you take, but in predicting what kind of...

The Dubious Case That We Need Significant Backcourt Help in 2013-2014

It seems to be common knowledge that we need help in the backcourt in 2013. That we have to sign someone capable of playing a solid 20 minutes a game for us. But I'd like to challenge that...

Antonio Barton is Available

It's being reported that Antonio Barton will transfer from Memphis. He seems to fit the bill to a "T" of what the Terps are in need of. A somewhat proven PG, with some untapped upside, who could...

FanPost

Why Pe Shon Howard is my FAVORITE Terp

I've been critical of Mark Turgeon a lot this year. Most would probably say too critical. So perhaps it takes a lot of chutzpa to chide others for being overly critical, but I think the fanbase's...

If the Argument is "We Are Young"...

That's a fair argument to make. Nobody can argue with that. All things being equal, experience is superior to inexperience.But if that is the argument you are going to make it's worth...

All in all an abysmal season for Turge (Thus Far)

Well the terps are now 5-6 and need to really improve quickly if they have any hopes of sliding into the field of 68. It looks like we are NIT bound, and all in all, in the grand scheme of things...

NC State Aftermath: Perhaps We (read: I) Have to Get Used to Turgeon's Style

Many, myself included, have criticized Turgeon for his strange substitution patterns, his inability to get our guys in sets, and his failure to tailor the offense to our two best players--Alex Len...

Let's Talk Turge

After the last three halves of basketball, you have to question the coaching. I want to preface this with the fact that I obviously support Coach Turgeon, and think better days are ahead no matter...

ACC Final Standings Prediction (Feel free to post your own)

In response to Ben's excellent ACC primer--I think it would be a good/fun idea to have a nice little prediction thread where people can compete, in one convenient place, for the unmatched glory of...

To Turn the Bills Around Bring Moneyball to Buffalo Before It Catches Fire

As of this writing--it appears that baring a complete and unprecedented football miracle the Buffalo Bills will once again miss the playoffs, despite lofty preseason hopes. It also appears to be...

Seth Allen, Pe Shon Howard and Jake Layman and a Random Thought about Ball Pressure

In Ben's excellent post game write up, and in (another excellent) fanpost giving impressions about the game everyone (mostly correctly) pointed out a number of things. Here's my own rub:1) Seth...

Some Thoughts on Shaq from Yesterday and a Quick (unpopular) Take on Stogs and Pe

First of all I recommend everyone go ahead and watch the East v. West All-American game yesterday on ESPN3 replay. Shaq was on the West Squad with the Harrison twins going up against an absolutely...

Tempering Expectations on the Twins: UK is the clear logical choice

I see a lot of fans on here saying things that makes me think a sizeable portion of the fanbase EXPECTS a Harrison Twin signing in the 2013 class. Not only do I think this is an unrealistic...

Dodd Committment Most Likely Foreshaddows Attrition

Let me say that I'm intrigued by Dodd---he's a 6'9" guy with a nice wing span and good girth. Who knows if he can hack it at the ACC level---the kid has never really played against this kind of...

Re: Terrell Stoglin

So yeah, a lot of peopple are trashing Stoglin's play and his attitude.Just one question to put that in perspective however--where would we be this year without Terrell Stoglin?I'm guessing we'd...

To me---the criticism of Crowton and Bradford is Way Off

During the game last night pretty much every commenter was in agreement that Crowton sucked.  I know that Offensive coordinators are typically the easiest whipping boy of the fans when things go...

What We Learned About the Strength of UMD Basketball

So in the wake of the MT hiring, I think it's time to point out two obvious things.

Not time to Jump Ship on UMD Bball

For all intents and purposes, barring a miracle run in the ACC tournament, our season ended last night in extremely frustrating fashion against a relatively average Miami team.  It certainly FELT...

Terps BBall Preview--We Could Be Something Special This Year
