Terps Basketball: Masters of Good News and Bad News

Jarrett CarterAnalyst IDecember 28, 2009

 The good news for the Maryland Terrapins is that they defeated Florida Atlantic going away to raise their record to 8-3, and distance themselves against winter mid-major meltdowns of the past. The bad news, they got out-rebounded by a much smaller team .

The good news is that Cliff Tucker contributed 11 points in the win and looked aggressive on offense. The bad news is that Tucker saw more minutes because Sean Mosley was out with an ankle injury .

Fortunately for those rocking the Terrapin red, there’s more good news than bad for this year’s edition of Maryland men’s basketball . They’ve looked sporadic, but not lost. They’ve looked out of sorts with their guard-heavy rotation at times, but never out of control. Even against higher competition in Cincinnati, Wisconsin, and Villanova, the Terps have yet to be outclassed by a comparable D-I opponent.

And that, in comparison to the last few seasons, is great news.
