Terps rally after Turgeon’s ejection, but fall to Miami in 2 OT’s
Question of the Day
“Never anything like this,” said Miami assistant Eric Konkol, who was set to run the team before Larranaga was waiting for the Hurricanes in the locker room after their final warmups. “It was an amazing day. It feels like a 48-hour day.”
The finish itself wasn’t especially memorable. The Hurricanes made six foul shots in the last 30 seconds to close out Maryland, which had a chance to win in regulation when Stoglin missed a 3-pointer in the final moments.
Of course, Miami could have finished it in the first overtime, only for Malcolm Grant’s 3-pointer to go awry with five seconds remaining.
And so they played on some more, 50 minutes for Maryland to demonstrate it might have, to borrow one of Turgeon’s favorite phrases, the gumption to be a factor down the stretch.
The Terps didn’t collect a win, a reality that didn’t sit well with Stoglin and guard Sean Mosley. But despite a shaky first half, it was hardly a performance to be sorry about.
Or one likely recede from memory soon.
“I was the substitute teacher,” Spinelli said. “I just had the lesson plan and tried to implement what I needed to implement. The guys wanted to play for their head coach, and it shows where our team is headed in the future.”
