Wow, Virginia is a really bad team. Singletary is an NBA-level talent, and will certainly ply his trade for good coin next year, but the rest of the Cavaliers might as well be given the nickname for Chevy's attempt at an economy automobile: The Crapaliers........

That said, Maryland had deja vu all over again letting UVA back in the game in the second half. The Duke contest must have weighed on them as another lead slipped away, but luckily the Crapaliers couldn't close the deal.

This is a maddening team: down by four against Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Terps out-scored the Heels by six points to win against #1. Up by nine at home against Puke, they collapse in a flurry of turnovers. At home against UVA, they're up by 17 and allow the lead to be cut to low digits before working the final margin to 10 at the buzzer.

What a blast, though. It is a roller-coaster ride with the Maryland Terrapins......I wouldn't really enjoy it any other way. I'll critique them and comment about their games all the way down to an in-bounds play called at the 11 minute mark, but I'll never criticize 'em. Gary Williams is "El Hombre!"

On to Georgia Tech.......

I agree that the Cavaliers are basically just a one man team with Singletary, who was injured and the Terps still couldn't really shut him down. Did get a little concerned late in the game when the lead had been cut to five but overall I was very impressed with this effort and think this team has made definite progress.
