Maryland suffers dispiriting defeat to lowly Georgia Tech
Question of the Day
“I wouldn’t give any excuse,” forward James Padgett said. “We just have to come and be prepared. Sometimes, we just don’t come out as prepared as we should be.”
And therein lies the problem for this particular bunch, which predictably endured erratic play early, evened out to some extent when it reached its full complement of players and has become less predictable since point guard Pe’Shon Howard suffered a season-ending knee injury Feb. 9.
Maybe Howard might have made enough of a difference for the Terps to survive Saturday, a worthy question for the first time in three losses since the sophomore went down for the second time this season.
Of course, Maryland also rallied past Miami without Howard on Tuesday, collecting perhaps both its most emotional and its most impressive victory a vital man down.
The spectrum of results the Terps have produced of late varies greatly. This one, though, left Turgeon as numb as any loss since returning from a three-game trip to Puerto Rico in November
“I haven’t felt this way in a while,” Turgeon said. “I know we didn’t play well at Virginia [on Feb. 18], but we competed in the first half. This mental effort, physical effort, toughness was disappointing.”
