College Park, MD–
We said earlier in the week that the Terps would need a solid team effort to knock off the struggling Michigan Wolverines, tonight they got just that in the second half of a 64-57 victory, but it wasn’t pretty to start.
For the first 10:00 or thereabouts, we were wondering when any of the Terps beside Jahmir Young were actually going to make an appearance tonight. Donta Scott and Julian Reese clearly emerged from the locker room like a bear from hibernation and ready to feed on Michigan’s sloppy offense.
After the game, Terps Head Coach Kevin Willard talked about the slow start and capitalizing on the Michigan mistakes.
“Donta has been playing like that in practice all year. He’s been playing really good over the last four games,” Willard said regarding Scott’s second half resurgence,” said Willard. “He had some good looks in the first half and we struggled in the first half. I think he was upset with himself at halftime, and he came out and he was very animated in the huddle before he went out, and he just did what a senior does.”
