Terps Boxscore Breakdown: Exhibition in poor performance

Here are the relevant stats via the MD official box score:

TOTAL FG% 1st Half: 8-26 30.8% 2nd Half: 16-29 55.2%
3-Pt. FG% 1st Half: 1-7 14.3% 2nd Half: 5-8 62.5%
F Throw % 1st Half: 9-13 69.2% 2nd Half: 12-18 66.7%

That would be doodie for overall first half shooting, and PURE DOODIE for 3 pointers. And then
a noticeable increase once the starters aren't playing.

DRASTIC improvement in the second half.

I only listened to the first half, but what I heard was not good. Turnovers (3 to Gist,
3 to Boom, 5 to Greivis) and fouls (3 in the first half to Gist, 4 overall to Walker).

Hayes has the clear strongest performance: 4-6 (2-4 3pt), 5 rebounds, 12 points, 3 assists, no turnovers and a steal.

So take your pick, either the first half was jitters and we recovered in the second half (let's hope for this), or the first
half shows the real identity and it'll be a looooooooong year.
