The Terps are ready for the NCAA Tournament, and they’ve got the dribbling skills to prove it.
Before each game, Maryland’s guards line up, squat down, slap hands and engage in some really fast dribbling. They also yell at each other.
Dez Wells tells The Washington Post that the dribbling portion is designed to get the feel of the ball. The yelling is to get hyped, said Melo Trimble, who added that the drill can be “somewhat tiring.”
The Terps – and their ball handling skills – tip off this afternoon against Valparaiso this afternoon.
