DC Sports Blog

Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post writes a DC Sports blog that is worth checking out. He has a local hoops poll that I participate in which seems fairly good. I'd give it a look.

Do you think that there will be as much outrage over the embarrassing errors in officiating during the North Carolina rout of Miami last night? I doubt it. For you young pups out there the term "Carolina refs" didn't originate with the rise of Coach K.

If, I say if, Maryland has a chance to get to 8-8 in the conference the last game of the season against NC State will be the crucial contest. Given that the Wolfpack upset an overrated but solid Virginia Tech team last night in Blacksburg that may be a tougher set of games than Maryland expected. Will Atsur(11.5ppg 4.5 ast) continue to haunt the Terps? Former Maryland target Ben McCauley is having an excellent sophomore season (16.1ppg 6.6 reb) and destroyed the Hokies inside. I'm not suggesting Maryland should have taken McCauley who was at the time a less athletic version of Nik Caner-Medley. McCauley has added some bulk and is an effective inside presence for the Wolfpack.
