Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Catching up with the DC BasketCases: Better Wake Than Never.
After dropping their last 4 games at Comcast, tonight in Winston-Salem, the Terps picked up an important ACC road win over Wake Forest, 70-65. Prior to this evening, the Demon Deacons were undefeated at home in conference play this season.

As the final score suggests, this was a tightly contested match-up. After falling behind early on, the Terps clawed their way back and led by 2 at the half, courtesy of a Lori Bjork 3-pointer in the final seconds of the first period. In the second, though the Terps led most of the way (helped greatly by hitting 14-straight free throws), they couldn't seem to put the game out of reach. It was still a one possession game with 17 seconds left. But a block (Lori), a rebound (Diandra), and a free throw (Dara) in the final seconds sealed the win for Maryland.
