And after entering this week one game over .500 at 18-17, two blowout losses have Maryland sitting with a losing record once again. Midweek struggles have contributed a lot to this, as the Terps have lost four of their last five midweek games.</p> <p id="YXd2ZE">Midweek pitching has struggled for the Terps, having given up 49 runs in their last five midweek games, almost 10 runs a game. That’s a big problem for a team who’s batting a combined .234, third-last in the conference. Maryland’s offense has scored just seven runs in its last three midweek outings.</p> <p id="stQIcZ">Now, the Terps have a tough task this weekend as they welcome Ohio State to Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium for a massive weekend conference series. Despite the recent midweek and bullpen struggles, Maryland is 5-4 so far in the Big Ten, and a good showing against the Buckeyes could continue to help the Terps’ cause as the season winds down and postseason play approaches.</p> <h3 id="sshd0s">Up next: Ohio State (21-17, 4-5 Big Ten)</h3> <p id="s7oSOc">The Buckeyes have had some struggles in conference play, getting unexpectedly swept at home to Northwestern. However, they’ve also won two of three Big Ten series, including last weekend at home against Michigan.</p> <p id="RClmPy">The strength of Ohio State is its offense, and four players are currently hitting over .300 for the Buckeyes. Dominic Canzone and Cherry Brady are the heavy hitters for the team. Canzone is hitting .360/.446/.620 with nine home runs, 27 RBI and leads the team with 54 hits. Brady is hitting .322/394/.568 with eight home runs and 31 RBI, second on the team with 47 hits. The Buckeyes are hitting .277 as a team, third-best in the conference which is a valuable asset against a Maryland pitching staff with a combined 5.35 ERA, third worst in the conference.</p> <p id="vxMuXQ">Ohio State’s pitching staff carries a 4.64 team ERA, seventh in the conference. Their three starters all have ERAs below 4.25, and two have sub-4.00 ERAs. The weekend trio has a combined 13-6 record. Seth Lonsway leads the starters with 61 strikeouts and a .215 opponent batting average and Garrett Burhenn has the lowest ERA with a 3.16 ERA and 5-1 record.</p> <p id="lWefQW">The bullpen is the Buckeyes’ weakest link, as their best reliever has a 3.57 ERA and only two relievers are sub-4.00. From there, it gets progressively worse, so if the Buckeyes want to take the series, they need their starters to pitch deep the three games this weekend.</p> <p id="lUIC9S">The series is still scheduled to begin Friday at 6:30 p.m. ET, but storms are in the forecast and could force a weekend doubleheader. As it stands, first pitches are slated for 2 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Easter Sunday.</p> https:/fda/maryland-terps/2019/4/19/18507733/baseball-weekend-series-ohio-state-preview-midweek-losses-recap Alex Murphy 2019-04-19T12:00:00-04:00 2019-04-19T12:00:00-04:00 Maryland football’s Damian Prince hopes to bring his dependability to an NFL team- w88asia995.howtomakeaboat.net <img alt="" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/n97jcpABsUtRVoVX9sOkAg0hcQM=/0x230:1619x1309/1310x873/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/63641869/usa_today_10378156.0.jpg" /> <p>Our draft profile series continues with a four-year starter on the Terps’ offensive line.</p> <p id="uDqLGK">When Damian Prince <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/college-football-recruiting/2014/2/5/5301596/damian-prince-commitment-maryland-florida">committed to Maryland football</a> on National Signing Day 2014, it was one of the Terps’ most exciting recruiting moments of the decade. Prince was the nation’s No. 27 overall prospect and No. 2 offensive tackle, and Maryland beat out plenty of blue-blood competitors.</p> <p id="A9r1uG">While he didn’t quite become a superstar in College Park, Prince still blossomed into one of the Big Ten’s best and most dependable linemen. After redshirting his first season, he was a constant presence each of his last four years, starting 39 games in his career and 33 since 2016. This past season, he earned a Third Team All-Big Ten selection from the media.</p> <p id="MIYrNz">Prince considered turning pro last year, but returned for his final season. While he hasn’t received much buzz throughout this draft cycle, he still has an outside shot at being drafted and should earn a serious look either way. Like we did with <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/players/256379/ty-johnson">Ty Johnson</a> and <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/players/246689/derwin-gray">Derwin Gray</a> earlier this week, let’s take a more in-depth look at Prince’s pro outlook. We’ll return with defensive draft profiles next week.</p> <h3 id="9fLZB7">The numbers</h3> <p id="iaACaF">Height: 6’3<br>Weight: 320</p> <p id="YB4FCP"><em>Prince didn’t attend the </em><a > https:/fda/maryland-terps-football/2019/4/19/18490698/damian-prince-offensive-lineman-nfl-draft-profile-stats-outlook Thomas Kendziora 2019-04-19T07:30:00-04:00 2019-04-19T07:30:00-04:00 Maryland men’s lacrosse vs. Ohio State preview- w88asia995.howtomakeaboat.net <img alt="" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/9SWmDK5h8VdE0IAgVnYR5vzszpg=/0x0:3664x2443/1310x873/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/63639309/e1R5A2168.0.jpg" /> <p>The Terps will be looking to clinch a Big Ten tournament berth with a win.</p> <p id="uTDCNB">Maryland men’s lacrosse will be traveling outside the state for the second consecutive weekend as it heads to Columbus to face No. 9 Ohio State. </p> <p id="wGGqbi">The Buckeyes enter this game similarly to how No. 2 Maryland does, coming off a come-from-behind victory on the road against Johns Hopkins last Sunday. Now, Ohio State sits at 8-2 on the season and 1-2 in the Big Ten, in a threatening position in the standings just two spots below the Terps. </p> <p id="hIQ5Lv">Save for a couple games in the last few years, Maryland has generally had success against the Buckeyes in the teams’ past matchups. The Terps lead the all-time series 8-3, but are just 3-3 in their last six meetings with two of those losses coming on the road. </p> <p id="k39oWK">Maryland has established a pretty solid foothold in the Big Ten through its first three games, taking care of Michigan and Rutgers after falling to Penn State to put the Terps at 2-1 in conference play. Currently in a tie with Johns Hopkins for the second spot in the Big Ten, a win on Saturday would guarantee Maryland a spot in the conference tournament and likely another shot at figuring out Penn State before the NCAA tournament. </p> <p id="bgQL85">Maryland’s season has also made it battle-tested for any opponents that lie ahead. Having played from behind and while ahead in several games this season, with their comeback against Rutgers being the most recent example of playing from behind, the Terps feel prepared for whatever challenges may be ahead.</p> <p id="ExxVDT">“Momentum-wise, absolutely, I think that game was huge for us,” sophomore midfielder Bubba Fairman said of the Rutgers game. “We came out with the deficit against Penn State, we fought back and we didn’t quite come back fully in that game, but against Rutgers we had been through that, so we knew that we could get out of it and I think moving with that mindset moving forward is gonna be awesome and huge for us.”</p> <p id="DQcPxz">Saturday’s game begins at 1 p.m. ET and will be televised on Big Ten Network. </p> <h2 id="k90tL3">No. 9 Ohio State Buckeyes (8-2, 1-2 Big Ten)</h2> <p id="z2kuWZ"><strong>2018 record:</strong> 8-6, 3-3 Big Ten</p> <p id="nw2FRL"><strong>Head coach Nick Myers </strong>shared Big Ten Coach of the Year honors with John Tillman last season, leading Ohio State to a third-place conference finish fueled by wins over then-No. 1 Maryland, No. 20 Michigan and No. 9 Rutgers in consecutive weeks to earn a spot in the conference tournament. Myers and the Buckeyes have carried over that strong last-month performance into this season, elevating themselves into the upper echelon of Division I for most of this year on the back of strong play on both sides of the ball.</p> <h3 id="gvsYTx">Players to know</h3> <p id="dX1uAi"><strong>Junior attack Tre Leclaire (No. 44)</strong> has grown into one of the stars of the game for the Buckeyes this season, improving upon his 26-goal output from last season with 33 goals through 10 games to put him among the top 10 scorers in Division I. Leclaire has scored nine goals in the last three games, and will likely look to assert himself early and often against Maryland’s defense on Saturday.</p> <p id="FV3sbP"><strong>Sophomore faceoff specialist Justin Inacio (No. 30) </strong>has followed up his 2018 Big Ten Freshman of the Year campaign with a strong sophomore season at the X, winning 143 of 236 draws (.606) for the Buckeyes. Maryland faceoff specialist Austin Henningsen has faced the best and worst of opponent faceoff specialists this season, with the former likely being the case this weekend.</p> <p id="GJKOph"><strong>Junior midfielder Ryan Terefenko (No. 34) </strong>is one of the best short-stick defensive midfielders in the country, scooping a team-high (excluding Inacio) 28 ground balls this season while locking up opposing midfielders. With a vacuum of a player in Terefenko on the other side, sophomore short-stick defensive midfielder Roman Puglise knows it’s going to be another battle in between the restraining lines. </p> <p id="YEGzhR">“The middle of the field, it kinda dictates the game,” Puglise said. “I always looked at it as a pride thing and just being hard-nosed and wanting to get in there, not being afraid to get hit at sometimes, not being afraid to fail ... you just gotta have a want to get dirty.” </p> <h3 id="VinVTv">Strength </h3> <p id="5IBhF4"><strong>Clears.</strong> This will be the second time this season that the Terps will face a team that ranks No. 1 in the country in clear percentage, first with Villanova and now Ohio State. The Buckeyes are careful with the ball, turning it over just 14.9 times per game (13th in the country) and are really precise on their clearances, so don’t expect the Terps to try to deploy too aggressive of a 10-man ride. </p> <h3 id="kb9pya">Weakness</h3> <p id="Nf764s"><strong>Causing turnovers.</strong> On the flip side, for how good Ohio State is at protecting the ball, they struggle at forcing other teams to turn it over. They force other teams to turn it over just 5.2 times per contest, ranking 72nd in the country in that category. A couple of extra possessions could be the deciding factor in this game, and Maryland would likely be the be the beneficiary if that ended up being the case.</p> <h3 id="nGsoZE">Three Things to Watch </h3> <p id="FLowcG"><strong>1. Can Bubba Fairman get things rolling? </strong>Fairman had a heap of pressure and expectations put on him coming into this season, with many hoping the sophomore would at least somewhat fill the role of departed star Connor Kelly. Fairman has played well but not to his ceiling as a player this season, recording 17 goals and 13 assists, but had a hat trick against Rutgers last weekend, a game that could get him going late in the season.</p> <p id="OoK7oX">“One thing I thought that really helped was just the team kind of putting me spots to be successful,” Fairman said. “I wouldn’t say it was a breakout game for me, I would say it was a breakout game for the team, and I just happened to be in the right spot at the right time.” </p> <p id="2k3JwV"><strong>2. How will Maryland’s defense fare against a top offense? </strong>Rutgers looked to have exposed Maryland’s defensive flaws in the first half of Sunday’s game, unloading nine goals through 30 minutes of play. But the defense stiffened, limiting the Scarlet Knights to just four goals in the second half, a testament to how this team has been able to adjust and stick to the game plan when the bullets are flying.</p> <p id="IwV3yu">“The biggest thing I would say is just getting the fundamentals sticking to the basic things we learned in the fall,” Puglise said. “If we can do those things great, the game plan becomes much easier. And I think you see us lacking in certain areas in our fundamentals early on, which causes more mistakes in the whole game plan, and when we get back to doing that, I mean, I think we’re a pretty talented defense.” </p> <p id="kYRDfC"><strong>3.</strong> <strong>Can Maryland get revenge for last year’s home loss? </strong>The Terps were able to avenge their home loss against Albany earlier this season and certainly will be looking to do the same Saturday. The team has mentioned earlier this season how personally they take home losses, so expect Maryland to come out looking to make a statement. </p> <p id="3I7HDJ">“Last year they came here and beat us pretty well, so we gotta bring that back to them this year,” Puglise said. “Every game is gonna be hard in the Big Ten, but there’s a little added incentives knowing that they came in here into our house and really handled us last year.”</p> https:/fda/maryland-terps/2019/4/19/18485953/mens-lacrosse-vs-ohio-state-game-stats-big-ten-standings-preview Henry Malone 2019-04-19T06:32:00-04:00 2019-04-19T06:32:00-04:00 MM 4.19: Maryland’s coordinators are using their NFL past to help the program’s future - w88asia995.howtomakeaboat.net <img alt="" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/6uIoSphWrZTh_E1ONGjOwAfaciQ=/0x507:2273x2022/1310x873/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/63639605/77388149.jpg.0.jpg" /> <p>This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.</p> <p id="8e10cE">If Maryland football running back Javon Leake misses a pass in practice, offensive coordinator Scottie Montgomery often tells him, “Catch jugs after practice, you’ve got to do something different to make it to that next level.” </p> <p id="tpH4DA">Montgomery would know. After all, he was a wide receivers coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers for three years, helping Mike Tomlin coach the team to an AFC championship in 2011. Leake is trying to expand his game, and having a pro in his corner has been really helpful. </p> <p id="bZTCF8">“He tries to give us everything he’s been through and his experience, tries to lean on us and guide us in the right way,” Leake said. “He’s the type of coach that, he just makes you feel like you can do anything.”</p> <p id="nSiXmZ">But Montgomery isn’t the only member of coach Mike Locksley’s staff with experience in the NFL. Defensive coordinator Jon Hoke joins Maryland after three years as Tampa Bay’s defensive backs coach and 16 years in the league. </p> <p id="r5vqMW">Maryland hasn’t had an offensive or defensive coordinator with NFL experience since 2010, when James Franklin — now Penn State’s head coach — was the offensive coordinator. Both Hoke and Montgomery are big on player development, and they are using their NFL experience to guide this year’s squad. </p> <p id="CnXwqD"></p> <p id="fC05Cs">“It’s really neat to come in here and be able to teach these guys the game of football, and just teach fundamental football, technical football,” Hoke said. “[I’m] able to share some of those experiences that I’ve had with those players, from coaching in college and from coaching in the National Football League, of what I’ve seen work.”</p> <p id="7mlzpe">Defensive back Marcus Lewis said Hoke has brought in a lot of plays that had positive outcomes for the Buccaneers over the last few seasons, which the defense is loving. </p> <p id="HpZp4g">“Coach Hoke, he’s been great,” Lewis said. “The system he runs is great.” </p> <p id="Fiv9z2">It was important to Montgomery to bring in the atmosphere he experienced in Pittsburgh. Before joining the NFL as a coach, Montgomery didn’t expect such a close-knit atmosphere focused on helping players both on and off the field. He learned that you can still have a family-focused atmosphere and be successful, and that’s the kind of attitude he wants to bring to Maryland. </p> <p id="S54pMU">“We don’t talk about winning, we talk about behaviors, daily behaviors that are conducive to excellence,” Montgomery said. </p> <p id="gHjg1M">And while Hoke and Montgomery have plenty of experience under their belt that will certainly benefit the Terps, both said they’re thrilled to have the opportunity to coach under Locksley and make something special out of this season. </p> <p id="sC4SJJ">“He was so ready for this opportunity, this one,” Montgomery said of Locksley. “He’s one of the smartest ball coaches that I’ve been around ... it was just one of those reactions, when I left I couldn’t wait to get back, so I was really excited about him.”</p> <h3 id="ez8kt6">In other news</h3> <p id="17rXkv"><a href="https:/fda/maryland-terrapins-basketball-recruiting/2019/4/18/18485686/hakim-hart-2-star-shooting-guard-commits-philadelphia-mark-turgeon">Two-star 2019 guard Hakim Hart committed to Maryland basketball on Thursday.</a> His commitment fills up all of the Terps’ scholarship spots for next season, though that could change if Bruno Fernando stays in the NBA Draft. </p> <p id="Kkrmni">Read our latest <a href="https:/fda/maryland-terps-football/2019/4/18/18484852/derwin-gray-offensive-line-nfl-draft-profile-strengths-weaknesses">NFL Draft profile on offensive lineman Derwin Gray</a>, who could end up as a late-round pick.</p> <p id="yjXaFz"><a href="https://umterps.com/news/2019/4/18/fridays-softball-game-cancelled-will-play-saturday-dh.aspx">Maryland softball rescheduled its Friday game against Penn State</a> due to weather conditions.

Hart joins Scott, as well as twin bigs Makhi and Makhel Mitchell.

Hart might not be the final addition, as Maryland could end up with another open scholarship before the end of the offseason. <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/college-basketball/players/292026/bruno-fernando">Bruno Fernando</a> and <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/college-basketball/players/283344/anthony-cowan">Anthony Cowan Jr.</a> declared for the draft Monday, and while Cowan is expected to return, most expect Fernando to keep his name in the draft.</p> <p id="XIV13M">Maryland has not officially received Hart’s National Letter of Intent, but with the regular signing period for basketball opening Wednesday, his pledge should be official before long. </p> https:/fda/maryland-terrapins-basketball-recruiting/2019/4/18/18485686/hakim-hart-2-star-shooting-guard-commits-philadelphia-mark-turgeon Lamar Johnson 2019-04-18T13:30:00-04:00 2019-04-18T13:30:00-04:00 After anchoring Maryland’s offensive line, Derwin Gray awaits his NFL Draft fate- w88asia995.howtomakeaboat.net <img alt="" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/EPOc1pDdD1JJeBN2Xei9tUOoKN8=/0x283:2209x1756/1310x873/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/63613870/usa_today_10378467.0.jpg" /> <p>The Terps’ left tackle could be a late-round pick, but where he fits on an NFL line is up for debate.</p> <p id="sNfvRQ"><a href="https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/players/246689/derwin-gray">Derwin Gray</a> was a leader on and off the field for Maryland football in his five years with the program, becoming a full-time starter for the past two seasons. He anchored the offensive line at left tackle, protecting the blind side of the ever-rotating carousel of Terrapins quarterbacks.</p> <p id="ohr1jn">With exactly one week left until the start of the NFL Draft, let’s take a look at Gray’s professional prospects. We’ll be profiling several of Maryland’s potential draftees in the coming days.</p> <h3 id="yDSHfO">The numbers </h3> <p id="a9o2tX">Height: 6’4<br>Weight: 320</p> <p id="mNphTt">40-yard dash: 5.26<br>225-pound bench reps: 26<br>Vertical jump: N/A<br>Broad jump: 90 inches </p> <h3 id="JhoZ1A">What an NFL team is getting </h3> <p id="mxEbiu">Gray is a big body that has the ability to bully smaller defenders, though those same defensive lineman can beat Gray with speed moves. His footwork leaves a lot to be desired, but his raw strength could cover up some of his technical deficiencies. </p> <p id="XNbLX9">Pass-blocking is his specialty, but as Lance Zierlien of NFL.com <a href="https://go.redirectingat.com?id=66960X1516590&amp;xs=1&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nfl.com%2Fprospects%2Fderwin-gray%3Fid%3D32194752-4164-5249-f0b2-32959304b449" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank">points out</a>, one of Gray’s biggest weaknesses is his inconsistency in run blocking. With the success of Maryland’s ground attack over the past couple years, that may surprise some. He also has difficulties in recognizing twists and zone blitzes, which could be exposed by elite NFL pass rushers.</p> <p id="GCogXP">Perhaps more at offensive line than other positions, measurables help tell the story of a prospect. In comparison with other NFL tackles, Gray is above average in terms of weight, but he’s undersized in many other categories. At 6’4, his height places in just the 15th percentile of all tackles in the draft, and his 9 5/8 hand size is only slightly better (17th). </p> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/NRWbZIpqBpEATvR5QUiBbDgFwuA=/400x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/16161433/20190418_113251.jpg"> <cite>mockdraftable.com</cite> <figcaption>Derwin Gray’s Measurables (OT)</figcaption> </figure> <p id="dOnL4j">As such, Gray’s future in the NFL could be on the interior offensive line. His hand size is still an issue, but his height immediately becomes a strength and his weight would have even more of an positive impact. His wingspan and arm length are solid for a tackle, but they are bordering on elite for an interior offensive lineman.</p> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/-D8ChF9M9F7kBqUcWca276ZGwp8=/400x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/16161446/20190418_113231.jpg"> <cite>mockdraftable.com</cite> <figcaption>Derwin Gray Measurables (OG)</figcaption> </figure> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/sJM68t4g2Ng9RT2BXT7pbpfqfgc=/400x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/16161451/20190418_113202.jpg"> <cite>mockdraftable.com</cite> <figcaption>Derwin Gray Measurables (IOL)</figcaption> </figure> <p id="6NutXq">For someone who has played tackle their entire collegiate career, an adjustment to the inside could be difficult. But it’s been done by a number of NFL players recently, including All-Pro guards <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/players/84674/zack-martin">Zack Martin</a> and <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/players/79227/joel-bitonio">Joel Bitonio</a>. That’s not to say it is easy, but there is definitely precedent.</p> <p id="671rPH">Gray started 22 of 24 games over the past two seasons, missing the first two games in 2018 due to offseason knee surgery. That injury is in the rear-view mirror, and he played without limitation once he joined the team in Week 3. </p> <h3 id="kqt27A">Draft projections </h3> <p id="O3Y2F0">According to Gray’s <a href="https://go.redirectingat.com?id=66960X1516590&amp;xs=1&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nfl.com%2Fprospects%2Fderwin-gray%3Fid%3D32194752-4164-5249-f0b2-32959304b449" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank">NFL Draft Profile</a>, he projects to be a late-round pick on Day 3 of the draft, most likely in the sixth or seventh round. His 5.32 prospect grade would project him as a backup as a professional, but Gray has a lot of volatility due to the uncertainty of his position going forward. There’s a very real possibility that some teams see him as a guard while others see him as a tackle, and that leaves his draft prospects up in the air.</p> <p id="HiYIx4"> </p> <p id="86JMoF"></p> https:/fda/maryland-terps-football/2019/4/18/18484852/derwin-gray-offensive-line-nfl-draft-profile-strengths-weaknesses Sean Montiel 2019-04-18T06:32:00-04:00 2019-04-18T06:32:00-04:00 MM 4.18: Maryland women’s basketball announces 2019-20 conference opponents- w88asia995.howtomakeaboat.net <img alt="" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/cMI-WI0aB6_BjOn3hKgfO1qSP9o=/0x0:3148x2099/1310x873/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/63601420/e1R5A7188.0.jpg" /> <p>This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.</p> <p id="ZdfR7Z">The Big Ten released conference opponents Wednesday, so we know who Maryland women’s basketball will face come the 2019-20 conference season.</p> <p id="PLwfeN">The reigning Big Ten regular season champs have home-and-away matchups with Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Northwestern and Ohio State.

Georgetown led 8-4 at halftime, the Terrapins’ largest halftime deficit since 2012. But the second half was a totally different story, as the Terrapins used a seven-goal run to take their first lead and run away with the game, ultimately winning the period 13-0.</p> <p id="je3DJH">Maryland outshot Georgetown 32-21, led 24-14 in shots on target and was able to command the draw control with a 21-6 advantage. Jen Giles led the way with five goals and two assists, Erica Evans added four goals, and both Brindi Griffin and Grace Griffin notched hat tricks. Megan Taylor finished with six saves, four of which came in the second half. Despite not scoring a goal, Kali Hartshorn was a huge factor in the second-half surge and finished with a season-high 12 draw controls. </p> <p id="VARn0Z">The Hoyas started the game with a 4-1 run through the first 10:59. Maryland got on the board thanks to an unassisted effort by Brindi Griffin, but overall the offense struggled to convert, which Georgetown made them pay for on the other end.</p> <p id="AtmDqs">The rest of the first half was much more back and forth, with Georgetown leading a 4-3 run, thanks to a goal with 26.2 seconds left in the half. Maryland head coach Cathy Reese attempted to call a timeout and set up her defense before the shot, but the Hoyas had already released it when the horn sounded and the goal stood.</p> <p id="bTk4hw">Though the Terrapins trailed at the half, they were neck-and-neck with the Hoyas statistically. Georgetown led 15-13 in shots, 9-8 in shots on target and had nine turnovers, compared to just two by the Terrapins. Maryland controlled 9 of 13 draws and were fouled 13 times by the Hoyas, while giving up just two. </p> <p id="hhLh2H">Maryland found its groove, to say the least, as it ripped off a 7-0 run and dominated the second half. Three goals from Giles and two from Evans in that span helped propel the Terrapins to their first lead and push further ahead.</p> <p id="N9qNwE">The Terrapins scored six more goals down the stretch, and the defense held Georgetown scoreless to take the victory. Megan Taylor made four big saves, and Maryland dominated the draw to keep the Hoyas off the board.</p> <h3 id="K0PZYu">Three things to know</h3> <p id="ugYYUX"><strong>1. It took a while for Maryland to settle in.</strong> Taking an 8-4 deficit into the half was new territory for the Terrapins this season, but they were able to overcome the early struggles. Upperclassmen really stepped up on the offensive end, while Megan Taylor returned to her usual self in the second half. </p> <p id="pRy9Qn">“The first half we just came out a little flat,” Evans said. “In the second half we just started playing Maryland lacrosse, finishing our shots, locking down on defense, and doing what we do best. ... [Jen Giles and I] knew we needed to go hard and finish our shots and be leaders in that kind of sense.”</p> <p id="nnaVNf"><strong>2. The Terrapins switched to three midfielders in the second half and it made all the difference. </strong>After the shaky first half, Maryland used four attackers instead of just three to help fuel the second-half run. Catie May and Kali Hartshorn were on the field together, rather than splitting time besides Caroline Steele and Brindi Griffin up top.</p> <p id="5qzhQ7">“When we came out it definitely took a lot of adjusting,” Brindi Griffin said. “They played a zone, we had to adjust to that.” </p> <p id="nmcJUt">The key for the Terrapins came on the free position, as their movement in the second half generated more chances, which they were able to convert. “In the first half we weren’t scoring a lot of our free positions,” Griffin said. “We were getting them but not finishing. In the second half, we had the confidence stepping on the line. Everyone was putting them away and that was awesome.”</p> <p id="e08zjW"><strong>3. Tough competition still lies ahead.</strong> The Terrapins will host Johns Hopkins on Maryland Day April 27 and have a chance to claim sole possession of the Big Ten regular-season title. Despite weak starts in recent games, Maryland must keep pushing along as games become increasingly more important from here on out.</p> <p id="OLx8d4">“The energy is there,” Reese said looking forward to the home matchup next weekend on Maryland Day. “The team’s fired up, they’re ready. ... From this point on you’re playing for something in every game we go for and I know these guys are fired up. This team is capable of amazing things.”</p> https:/fda/maryland-terps/2019/4/17/18420005/womens-lacrosse-georgetown-final-score-recap-stats Wesley Brown
