Terps Basketball: Midnight Madness

Posted by SuckaFish

Midnight Madness is only three weeks away. Here’s what’s happening with the Terps.

Lindy’s College Basketball preseason magazine named their top programs of the decade. Guess who made the top 10.

Sporting News named their top shooting guards in the country. Guess who made the top two.

Coach Gary Williams got a one-year contract extension.

Fanhouse has a good post about the new Len Bias documentary.

Gary was on a local radio show this morning and they started talking about his Twitter feed. Gary admitted that a staffer does the typing for him so they asked if he knew what the messages were called. He did not. They told him they were tweets and he replied, “How can you be a man …” Which reminds me, did you know you can follow SWAGLESS on Twitter? Were @SWAGLESSNetwork

“Gary” tweeted an update on former Terps now playing overseas. Here’s his list:
Dave Neal – Ireland
James Gist – Italy
Bambale Osby – Romania
Parrish Brown – Mexico
Mike Jones – Romania
Travis Garrison – Turkey
DJ Strawberry – Italy
Jamar Smith – Italy
Chris McCray – Italy
Nik Caner-Medley – Spain
John Gilchrist – Australia
Ekene Ibekwe – Turkey
Ryan Randle – France
Drew Nicholas – Greece
Lonny Baxter – Greece
Terence Morris – Spain
Rodney Elliott – France
Sarunas Jasikevicius – Greece
