Add The Cal Hoops Team To The List

Terps win 84-71 and they advance to play Memphis on Saturday. It won't be easy as Memphis, last year's NCAA finalist, is one of the favorites to win this tournament. But this Maryland team has exceeded my expectations. It's been such an up and down season. They'd fight hard and you'd see a great effort as they beat three top ten teams this season. On the other hand, they got drilled by Georgetown early in the season by 27, and on the road Clemson and Duke whalloped them. One just never knew what you would get watching this team play.

Credit goes to coach Gary Williams for getting it all together at the right time. The Terps are 21-13 and they had a good ACC tournament run and proved all the doubters wrong with an unexpected NCAA win. I'm sure Maryland will come ready to play hard on Saturday at 3:00 PM and you never know what can happen. Remember what George Mason did three seasons ago?

Out of all the pictures I saw from the game, this is my favorite. Greivis Vasquez is all smiles and I love Gary's signature fist pump in the background!
