After sweating out the bubble and expecting an 11 seed at best, the Terps get a 10 and a matchup with 7-seed Cal on Thursday in Kansas City, with the winner to
lose to play Memphis.
Regardless of how it plays out from here, this season is a success, and the rest is just gravy. It feel good.
Update: A quick look at Cal reveals they went 22-10 (11-7) with an RPI of 39, a SoS of 44 and big wins over Washington (twice) and Utah and went 7-8 over their past 15. Basically, they’re just as average as Maryland!
Update No. 2: Maryland-Cal is at 2:55 p.m. ET Thursday, which works for me as a) I’ll be home; I’m always home and b) Mrs. Relevant is expecting to be taken out for her birthday that evening.
