COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Maryland players Richaud Pack, Jake Layman and Melo Trimble addressed the media March 18 before the Terps departed for Columbus, Ohio, for its second-round NCAA tournament game March 20 against Valparaiso. Trimble discussed the opportunity the Terps have ahead of them and how confident the team is heading into the tourney. He mentioned how the UMD really doesn't feel slighted by its earning a four-seed and have since "put it behind them."
Pack, who died his hair blonde in honor of his deceased aunt, said he's really excited that his family now has a chance to see him play in an NCAA tournament. He went on to say he's not worried the tourney's "big stage" will rattle the Terps either, because of the calm, level-headed personality of the squad.
Layman, meanwhile, said Maryland "definitely has something to prove" March 20 and beyond. He noted that the team's main focus is "on ourselves" and living up to expectations.
