The Maryland Terrapins are set to kick off their 2012-2013 college basketball season. Last season did not go as hoped for the Terrapins as they finished 17-15 and fell short of making it to the NCAA Tournament, a place where they are most definitely used to being. The Terrapins had made the NCAA Tournament for 11 straight years from 1994-2004, fell short in 2005 and 2005, and made it again in 2007, 2009, and 2010. 2002 was the Terrapins most magical season as Gary Williams led them to a Conference regular season championship as well as an NCAA Tournament Championship. The team was led by guard Juan Dixon and Steve Blake, and the sharp shooting Terrapins cruised to the title. The Terrapins did not win the Conference regular season championship again until 2010, but did not come up with a NCAA Tournament Championship that year, as it went to longtime rival Duke Blue Devils. This year the Terrapins will operate under second year head coach Mark Turgeon as he came over from the Big 12's Texas A&M in 2011. Turgeon will have a lot of talent to work with this year as he returns his best player. Junior guard Terrell Stoglin averaged a whopping 21.6 points in his sophomore season, and the Terrapins cannot wait to have him back on the floor this season. The Terrapins also bring in one of the best recruiting classes in over a decade as they land four players on the Rivals Top 150 Board including: center Shaquille Cleare, forward Jake Layman, forward Charles Mitchell, and guard Sam Cassell. The Terrapins play their home games at the beautiful Comcast Center in College Park, Maryland. Since the Terrapins do not have a very good football team, basketball has also been the passion on campus. There student section, the wall, is always rocking at every home game.
