In terms of the Big Ten standings, today's game against Indiana is meaningless.
Maryland will be the 3 seed if Purdue beats Wisconsin and the 4 seed if they don't. It's that simple.
Today's game is critical if you want the Terps to have a deep run in March. Maryland finally played a good game against a dreadful Illinois team on Thursday. Yes, Illinois is bad but the Terps were hitting threes. The Terps, particularly Melo and Nickens, haven't been able to hit the broad side of the barn for over a month so it was important to see them both shoot well.
Now, it's time to build on that performance. Teams that struggle heading into the NCAA Tournament are less likely to do well and a little two game winning streak and a couple of wins in the Big Ten Tournament will put the Terps in a good spot. What's more, it's likely the only path to a three seed. Win today and make the finals of the Big Ten Tournament.
I think the Terps will play well today. They seem to finally broken out of the shooting slump. This game matters to Turgeon. Let's go.
