    State still leads the Country in shooting. They had an off night in shooting. Len played his part in this win.

    As you said, the refs let them play, and i think that heavy, unchecked physicality was a bit new to this team. There are no excuses... a team must adjust to the ref style on the court. BUT i think this game might actually be a blessing in disguise for that reason.... now that this squad has had a taste of the "hands off" refs, Gott can work on coaching the team for the next time.... which most likely will not occur until the ncaa's.

    All in all a good experiencein the long run. Better to see it now than to hit it cold with some Big East crew in the tournament.

    yep, they should have used the advantage they had and fouled Howard on the drive to the baseline...it would have left a couple of seconds, on an inbounds, to shoot, easier to defend...Gott needs to learn from this one, 2

    Very poor coaching job by Gott-fired. He should have had them fouling at the end sicne somehow they only had 3 fouls with less than 2 minutes left. Imagine that....lololol

    In pure non-smack talk, I am anxious to see how they respond to this loss. It will tell everyone what to expect from them this season.

    IF only you had that 3rd digit to your IQ, sweetie... you'd have seen where I also said, "the refs let them play".

    ask an adult nearby to you what that means... I don't have any crayons handy.

    hang in there, lil lady.

    No he didn't. Why do you keep telling this lie???

    Wow, wonder how MD was in the penalty at the end of the second half and state kollege only had 3 fouls if it was a "wrestling" match. Wolfers got the calls and still could not win. Poor things....and the fans all in tears! My goodness! LMFAO!

    the refs let them play, and MD took advantage of it... outside of Howell and CJL, State's players don't do well with contact during their shots (Purvis isn't bad, but he's still too hesitant to drive). it was more of a wrestling match than a basketball game, but you have to be able to adjust... State just doesn't have the bodies to throw out there (md played 10 guys)....

    it is what it is... 1 L in an 18 game schedule... put it behind ya.

    TBK said it was Bilas fault....lmfao!

    I am not saying that you are making any. This loss is a head scratcher. Maryland should have lost by 20+.

    correct.

    the hole fans WANT to see it...

    alas, it won't, and hasn't stopped them from just MAKING it (State fans "blaming something") up.

    melancholy, really.

    No there aren't any. I'm not seeing us make any excuses.

    State has tons of talent on that team, starting with Brown at PG. If KM had returned to UNC for one more season, the Heels would be a much better team. State should not have lost to Maryland tonight, especially after beating Duke. Good teams can come back from emotional wins and play their best on any given night. That is why, I do not believe this is an NCAA Championship quality team. They can get better, but do not seem to have that Champions mentality. Gott should have gotten in their grills at HT and told them to play like they are capable. This is on the coaches and the players tonight!
