Connecticut is about to win its fourth straight women’s basketball title (heretofore unprecedented in all of college hoops) and all the questions facing coach Geno Auriemma seem to amount to: Why doesn’t anyone care?
Refs blew it twice in one play tonight as Maryland’s Jake Layman wasn’t whistled for a double dribble on his first-half dunk against Kansas, but earned a technical foul for hanging on the rim. There’s a good reason Layman didn’t immediately let go after the straight-on two-handed dunk, and the technical foul is…
Here’s a stupid fact about college basketball: The million-dollar sponsorship deals that schools sign with various apparel companies has created a sport in which there is no universal game ball. Nike schools use Nike balls, Adidas schools use Adidas balls, and so on.
Wisconsin fought back at home against Maryland from a late eight-point deficit, only to lose at the last second. Down 60-52 with less than 1:30 left, Wisconsin hit a layup and a pair of threes to tie it at 60. But right after Bronson Koenig’s three, Melo Trimble calmly pulled up from well behind the line and drained…
Northwestern is sporting its best men’s basketball team in years—maybe ever, given that the Wildcats have never, ever made the NCAA tournament—and Maryland’s fourth-ranked Terrapins are in Evanston tonight looking to darken those bright Chicago skies (heh, heh).
Michigan State is in the midst of what looks like it should be a comfortable home win against Maryland. Early in the second quarter, the Spartans’s Macgarrett Kings Jr. hauled in this left-handed catch in a tight window to give his team a first down.
West Virginia is obliterating the Terrapins today, as the Mountaineers are already up 38-0 at the half. Taking things especially hard was this Maryland cheerleader who bore the brunt of Shelton Gibson’s 41-yard touchdown catch:
According to a report from the Washington Post’s Roman Stubbs, Maryland women’s assistant basketball coach Bryce McKey has been accused of sexual abuse by a player he coached while at Xavier, and had recruited since grade school. McKey is scheduled to be arraigned on a misdemeanor charge Friday morning in Kentucky’s…
Maryland guard Dez Wells was kicked off the Xavier men's basketball team in 2012 after being accused of sexual assault. An Ohio grand jury ultimately decided not to bring charges against Wells, and he later settled a lawsuit filed against Xavier. It's something he still hears about from opposing fans, and while his…
Freshman Melo Trimble leads Maryland in games played, minutes, points, scoring average, free throws, free throw percentage, assists and steals. But Trimble's game is at least as pleasing to non-analytics obsessives. Early into a season in which his team earned a reputation for thriving in cliffhangers, folks near…
Okay, man, this is starting to get a little ridiculous.
Maryland captains refused to shake the hands of their Penn State counterparts before today's game in State College that featured a bit of a fight between the two Big Ten squads.
Maryland guy calls fair catch. West Virginia guy plows into Maryland guy. Maryland guy can't make catch. Maryland scores touchdown.
Maryland will honor former Syracuse standout Wilmeth Sidat-Singh when the teams meet on Saturday, 76 years after they banned him from playing after discovering he was black instead of a West Indian Hindu.
In October 1937, Maryland administrators threatened to cancel a game with Syracuse unless the then-Orangemen benched their offensive star, Wilmeth Sidat-Singh. The problem, as Maryland saw it, was that he wasn't the right type of colored boy.
Friday night's Maryland-Duke soccer game saw a record-breaking attendance of 8,397 at Ludwig Field. That large, supportive crowd partially explains why this bleacher row collapsed under some enthusiastic fans.
Linebacker Marcus Whitfield had a hell of an opener for the Terps, racking up five tackles and one-and-a-half sacks. He was awarded the game ball, but won't get to see it for a while—the school is putting it in storage to avoid running afoul of NCAA regulations.
