Fran Fraschilla made an astute observation in the closing minutes of tonight’s 75-48 Georgetown rout of Maryland.
That is, that these two local schools probably won’t be playing again any time soon.
Let’s put it this way: With the way the Hoyas treated the Terrapins as if they were little more than Drexel-like fodder, the demand probably decreased a little bit – even if it would be good for the area of the two local giants played.
For Maryland, it marked the program’s lowest offensive output in nearly 10 years, and the Terps challenged the school record for fewest points since the advent of shot clock.
Should be fun to hear about what Gary Williams has to say about this one. I know we won’t hear from players come Tuesday heading into the Michigan game, so the insight will be pretty one-sided until about 10 p.m. Wednesday.
But for now, here’s a chart on Maryland’s lowest scoring totals in Williams’ 20 seasons to tide everyone over:
|12-2-95||vs. Massachusetts ||L, 47-50|
|11-30-08||vs. Georgetown||L, 48-75|
|12-1-89||vs. South Carolina||L, 51-52|
|1-25-03||at Clemson||W, 52-47|
|1-11-06||at Duke||L, 52-76|
|2-15-95||at Wake Forest||L, 54-63|
|1-19-97||at Wake Forest||W, 54-51|
|1-25-95||at Clemson||W, 56-51|
|12-21-01||at Oklahoma||L, 72-56|
