More Like John Paul Owned Nevermind
Now that we're getting into the heart of the ACC schedule, expect at least one Terrapin Basketball post per week. Sorry, get over it. On that note, Maryland takes on Virginia tonight in the Cavs' brand new John Paul Johns Arena in Charlottesville. The Terps left UVA and The DCeiver a foul taste in their mouths last season when Maryland defeated the Cavaliers in their final home game at University Hall, the last to be played in the historic venue. We're a bit skeptical about tonight's matchup considering that Sean Singletary has been lighting it up the past few games and is the team's biggest perimeter threat. However, unlike last year's Terps squad which gave up more 3 pointers than the Golden State Warriors, this season's team has improved dramatically in relation to field goal defense. Still, ACC road games are incredibly tough and Maryland hasn't quite excelled in that aspect the last few seasons. Then again, this year's team is also the same one that won at Illinois back in November, so I don't quite know what to expect. With that said, we here at The Upstate Life believe that this one is going to be close. Prediction: Terps on top so the post title plays out perfectly.
