I get to cover six basketball games for the University of Maryland this season for
Inside MD Sports. Here is my second game.
Official Box Score
I'm still a work in progress shooting basketball as you can see. I just need some more practice and basketball game experience. Ok, that said, the Terps played a complete game today vs Samford winning 75-63. For the Terps (9-3) it was their sixth straight win.
I was able to sit in during Coach Turgeon's post game press conference in the media room and picked this up... "We wanted to dominate the paint, offensively and defensively, and we wanted to play inside-out,” Turgeon said. “That’s the way we’re trying to establish ourselves. If you can establish the inside, then it opens it for everybody.”
He also wanted to get his bench some playing time as a reward for their hard work in practice. It was a solid December for Maryland, which went unbeaten during the month for the first time since 2008-09.
Here are the game shots. For a larger gallery of pictures, just click on any shot. Enjoy! Any advice, comments, tips, etc are always welcome. Please comment or e-mail me via the contact bar on the right of the blog. Thanks for stopping by and Happy 2012!
