CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – Just as quickly as Maryland’s win over Duke on Saturday night vaulted them into the NCAA Tournament conversation, the Terrapins may have moved right back outside of it. A lackluster effort on Tuesday night culminated in a 69-58 loss that can undo a lot of what Saturday’s win did for them.
“I just don’t get it,” said head coach Mark Turgeon. “I just don’t understand – right here, it’s a big game, it’s not a hostile environment. You’ve just got to want it. It just seemed like we were standing in quicksand all night, standing and watching.”
