ON WASHINGTONTIMES.COM ” AN EXCERPT FROM D1SCOURSE
Quick, who led Maryland in offensive rebounds Friday night against Vermont?
Waiting. Waiting. Still waiting.
OK, time’s up. It was Adrian Bowie, who nearly had more offensive boards (four) than Jerome Burney, Braxton Dupree, Dino Gregory and Dave Neal put together (five).
“For all of you that were wondering who we were going to play at the five spot, I think we found our guy - Adrian Bowie,” coach Gary Williams said. “He was unbelievable on the offensive glass down the stretch there.”
While Greivis Vasquez had another huge game and Eric Hayes was steady, a case can be made that the most welcome performance of Maryland’s first three games came from Bowie. He demonstrated his ability in spurts last year, but it’s clear he’ll be one of the most valuable pieces of the Terrapins‘ bench this season.
Lost in the rally and the overtime dominance is that Bowie played the final 19:39. Heck, even Vasquez received a couple brief spells in that span.
All of Bowie’s offensive rebounds, by the way, came in the final 6:05 (including overtime).
TWT FIVE ” “PRESEASON” BASKETBALL TOURNAMENTS
1. Maui Invitational - So much of a treasured destination that teams can participate once every four years … except Chaminade, of course.
2. Preseason NIT - Not quite as fun for college hoops junkies as the NIT in March, but games at Madison Square Garden make it pretty sweet.
3. Great Alaska Shootout - Games until well after 2 a.m. in the East. Gotta love that time difference.
