Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said he "wasn't very good today" -- that he overcoached his team until about the six-minute mark in the second half, when he finally told the Terrapins' players to run two things (primarily the ball-screen stuff with Melo Trimble and Robert Carter) the rest of the game. In the meantime Turgeon remains pleased with his team's defense and its ability to hold on in tight, tough games, even as he waits for the offense to really open up. "Sometimes you're sitting over there and you've got 15 plays," Turgeon said. "Just keep it simple."

Terps take down Boilermakers (0:58)
