#17 Maryland @ Ohio State

If you haven't fallen I love with this Terp team yet, then what are you waiting for?

Maryland did it again on Saturday. They came from behind with a sublime second half effort against and stout Minnesota squad. Make no mistake, the Gophers didn't blow the game, the Terps just took it from them.

Maryland was deadly from behind the arc and they committed only 7 turnovers for the whole game. 

Melo dished out 9 assists. Justin Jackson and Kevin Huerter were assassins out there. It was a complete effort minus a couple of bone headed fumbles by Damonte Dodd down the stretch. 

The Terps are now cruising. Ranked #17 in the country and undefeated on the road. The press is finally taking notice and the Terps are positioned to make a Big Ten title run as well as garnering a great seed in the NCAAs.

All of this means that tomorrow's game at Ohio State is a trap game. The Buckeyes have under achieved all year but are talented. The Terps are coming off that emotionally draining winning in Minneapolis with at top 25 tilt waiting this coming weekend against Purdue.

The Terps are due for a letdown but this team certainly feels different. I suspect they'll get tested to the limit on Tuesday but if it's close down the stretch, I'll be backing the Terps.
