Maryland’s offense dries up in 2nd half of ugly loss to No. 22 Virginia
“We just couldn’t get rolling in the second half as a team,” guard Sean Mosley said.
That went for anyone on a roster still harboring some postseason hopes despite a short-handed roster.
It was Maryland’s third game since Pe’Shon Howard was lost for the season with a torn ligament in his right knee, and the Terps’ frontcourt generally struggled both to contain Scott and find any offensive chances against the Cavaliers.
“Emotionally, I just feel like we didn’t give it our all,” Mosley said. “For a guy who’s won a lot of games here at the University of Maryland, I know what it takes to win. I’ve been on a lot of winning teams. It’s not easy to win. It’s very hard. Once guys start to understand that, I think that will be the turning point of our season.”
Time is running out. Maryland has four games over the final two weeks of the regular season, including Virginia’s return trip next month.
Of course, Maryland won’t have another rapid turnaround unless it advances in the ACC tournament. It won’t bus several hours to a game during rush hour.
But it will have the same roster for the finishing stretch, starting with Tuesday’s visit from Miami.
“We got tired,” Turgeon said. “But give them credit. We looked a little tired to start the second half, and then we couldn’t finish. It’s where we are, guys. It’s unfortunate. Hopefully, we’ll play better on Tuesday.”
