Maryland is likely in for a long season, but you can't hope to do much when your backcourt is 2-23.

James Padgett was the leading scorer with just nine.

After the game, Mark Turgeon was hardly pleased, telling the Post that "[w]e’re way too selfish to be any good offensively. Our guys think that they have to get it going [individually], instead of as a team get it going."

Georgia Tech fared somewhat better but fellow rookie coach Brian Gregory said that getting out-toughed was maybe the sign of a young team, which we are, and maybe of a team that's trying to forge a new identity."

Well St. Joe's is no older: Phil Martelli has 10 underclassmen.

Mfon Udofia had 20 points and Kammeon Holsey added 13.

Tech shot just 36.8% and had but four assists for the game.  So less than 20% of their shots came as a result of an assist - ugh.

Maryland made just 13 shots but had eight assists which translates into 61.5%.

On the other hand, they shot just 26.5%.

Bobby Cremins, who may be the best ex-coach in ACC history, sat with the Tech fans.

On Friday, Virginia takes on TCU, B.C. plays local opponent Holy Cross, Maryland takes on Colorado and Georgia Tech gets VCU. Counting Duke's game with Davidson, (we always list Duke's games on the front page), the ACC could easily come out of Friday 2-3.

We'll be particularly interested to see how Maryland plays, given Turgeon's criticism of his team and how Tech bounces back against VCU, which of course dazzled the nation last spring with their drive to the Final Four.
