Woo Hoo!! Two Lady Terps go in the first round WNBA draft and other MD basketball tidbits!

Crystal Langhorne, an outstanding center for the Maryland Lady Terps, is staying close to home. She was drafted by the Washington Mystics. Langhorne was the 6th overall pick. Laura Harper went 10th and will be playing in Sacramento.

This brings to mind Juan Dixon being drafted by the Wizards when he entered the draft. Almost makes me misty-eyed, pondering just how long it's been since Juan and Company kicked some serious basketball tail at College Park.

Our prospects are good for next year. MD has some snappy players in the lineup. Among them Gus Gilchrist, Bobby Maze among them. I have to say, this write up makes me clasp my hands together in prayer. I so HOPE this guy is this GOOD!

Maze had a perfect game against Friends University JV on NewYear's Day, going 7 of 7 from the field and 5 of 5 from the free-throwline for 19 points. He also added 12 assists and had no turnovers with two steals and a blocked shot. He then scored 21 points on 7 of 13shooting in an 80-76 win over Seward County on Jan. 5

7 of 7 from the field and 5 of 5 from the FT line?? Ah, to have a sure player, to have someone who's that sure of himself might boost the confidence of everyone. He's at Hutchinson Community College, so hopefully, he'll come in with maturity and leadership skills. We're gonna struggle with the loss of Boom and Gist.

Ah, I have to wait SOOOOO long for Midnight Madness :)
