No panic Terps fans

What we’ve witnessed in the current two-game ACC losing streak is not cause for panic, because it’s simple seasoning.  These Terps are young, tough, and have great chemistry and will overcome.  After plowing through a ridiculously easy tune-up schedule, there were bound to be some rough spots as the conference games started.  The 3-point loss to Florida State was a surprise but the Seminoles superior athleticism was on display late and carried the day.  I’m less surprised at the mauling administered by a much more senior and mature Miami team, but these are the growing pains that have to be suffered to lay the groundwork for success.

The only point of concern is the very low assist to turnover ratio during the setbacks.  Seth Allen is a little young and Pe’Shon Howard doesn’t quite control the game to the level you’d like.  Ultimately, the job should belong to Allen because his potential is greater.  It will just take time.

I love the Terps chances coming home against a sky high NC State group fresh off an upset win over Duke.  The Wolfpack is a very talented team and has enjoyed a couple of excellent recruiting campaigns over the past two seasons.  But this game smells like a letdown for them and the Terps should be hungry.  Tip is Wednesday night; can’t wait!

Here we go Maryland here we go!
