#21 Maryland vs #7 Virginia

12/3/2014 11:02:23 AM Maryland is ranked for the first time in something like 4 1/2 years and we get to celebrate by hosting #7 UVA in our first tangle with an ACC school as a member of the Big Ten.  It's an exciting way to play this year's first meaningful game at the Xfinity Center.

The Terps will be without Dez Wells which is a huge blow to our hopes.  However, those who are ready to throw in the towel, let me caution you that our young Terps were able to beat the then #12 Iowa State Cyclones while Dez Wells shot an atrocious 5 for 20 from the field and did everything he could to give Iowa State a chance to comeback in the closing minutes.

That said, of course I think Maryland's chances would be better with Wells in the lineup.  I'm just saying that I think our young kids can pull this off.

Melo Trimble has shown that he is an elite talent.  The offense will run through him.  Ceko has gotten better every game and if he plays well tonight, the Terps can hold their own in the interior.  Jake will need to get his points and I think we will need one other scorer to step up.  Nickens and Wiley are both capable. 

The crowd will help.  A win tonight and this team is in the Top 25 to stay.
