Maryland-GT: Just Give Her The Damn Ball

By Jeff Lippman - March 02, 2007

With 13:37 to go in the game, Maryland leads Georgia Tech 50-37.

Leading the way for the Terps is Crystal Langhorne with 18 points and eight boards. She is the most agile big in the country with some of the best low-post moves I've seen. She's unstoppable down low, and if she doesn't hit her shot, she'll get fouled.

What I don't understand, is why Maryland ever makes a trip down the court without giving her the ball. They have great players at every position who can all light up the scoreboard, but none compare to the skills of Langhorne.

Maryland needs to keep better control of the basketball, settle down and get the ball to Langhorne and then they will have what it takes to repeat as national champs.

They won't get past Duke or UNC if Langhorne doesn't dominate inside.

Tech is playing a very physical basketball game. It's almost as if they realize they can't win even up so they are scratching, clawing, ripping and tearing at Maryland in an attempt to get them to lose their cool.

Already, Laura Harper and Crystal Langhorne have been visibly frustrated after grabbing a rebound and then getting beat up from all sides by Yellow Jacket players.
