Tickets Punched, UMD 75 – WAKE 64

Mar. 13, 2009, 9:30 PM

When the Maryland Terps last played Wake Forest, they played as well as you could play without actually winning the game. Dave Neal had a spectacular game on his senior night and for most of the game it looked like Maryland had the Demon Deacons’ number. But thanks to 18 offensive rebounds from Wake, it turned out to be another frustrating collapse by Gary Williams’ squad.

Fast forward to tonight’s ACC Tournament Quarterfinal game. Behind the leadership of Greivis Vasquez, Maryland out hustled Wake and came out on top 75-64. With the win, Maryland pretty much guaranteed themselves a spot in the NCAA Tournament

Here are some statistics that jump out at me immediately: Maryland from the field, 44%. Wake, 30%. Free Throws: Maryland shot 81% while Wake shot 71 %. And finally the most staggering of numbers: The Demon Deacons were 3-25 from beyond the arc. That’s 12%!! Maryland on the other hand shot a cool 38%.

So statistically speaking, Maryland won easily. And that is fine. But I was really impressed with the effort from the whole team. Mosely, Hayes, Neal, Milbourne. They all played smart basketball.

Next up for the Terps will be the winner of the Duke/Boston College game
