That's right, Terps fans!
In the men's basketball season opener last night, the 16th-ranked Terrpains of the University of Maryland hosted Jackson State. The game was dominated by the Terps, who won easily, 93-57. For those who don't know what a Terrapin is, you can read about it on the site for my Hattrick team. I made a page specifically devoted to Terrapins.
In other ACC news, University of North Carolina choked in their opener, losing 77-66 to Santa Clara. Come on, UNC was supposed to be #3 in the country. Seems to me like a bit of Dukie Vitale over-hyping.
