I wasn’t able to watch the game last night, but by most accounts it seemed to be a gutty, probably-closer-than-it-needed-to-be-but-still-a-40-minute-effort team victory, 75-70 over Michigan. True to the formula, when the Terps get balanced scoring (four guys in double figures), a win usually follows. Although let’s not make these Wolverines into Glen Rice and the Fab Five. Rumeal Robinson isn’t walking through that door.
Down toward the bottom of the Washington Post article came this little nugget:
One player who was unavailable to help out was usual starter Braxton Dupree. The sophomore center missed class on Monday and sat out last night’s game as a result.
Oh, sorry, Braxton, did you not get the memo? I swear I sent it to you. We moved all your classes into the Food Co-Op. Did you not think to look there? Yo, our bad, bro. If only we had known it would cause you to miss a game…well, we’re just beside ourselves.
Hats off to Gary’s lineup changes in general. It was about time Bowie got some more run, although he didn’t seem to play particularly well. Landon Milbourne(?) got the start at center and ended up not only sparking the victory, evidently, but also getting three rebounds and one block. That’s an improvement of precisely three rebounds and one block over Dupree’s performance against Georgetown. Huzzah!
