#19 Maryland vs Penn State

2/14/2015 7:34:04 AM The Terps pulled out a close one on Wednesday against a capable and talented Indiana squad.  It was the first game in nearly a month where Maryland's big three all played well. Damonte Dodd reemerged as a defensive presence and Jared Nickens finally found his stroke.  All of that translated into a win despite the Terps giving up 15 offensive rebounds and turning the ball over 13 times. All of the ills have not been fixed but it feels like the Terps may have turned the corner from their horrid form of late.

The Terps need to prove they can do this on the road.  They haven't played a competitive game on the road since early January.  Penn State is decidedly beatable.  At any given time, the Terps will have 5 of the best 6 players on the court wearing red. Simply put, this is a crucial road game.  Maryland can't afford to drop games like this.
