Shit's about to get real for the Maryland Basketball Team.
We've had a nice season to date with a couple of strange bumps, but on the whole, this team has exceeded all expectations and is poised for the postseason.
The schedule get tougher starting tonight. Amazingly, historical doormat Northwestern has solidified its place as an upper tier Big Ten team and Welsh-Ryan Arena will be rocking tonight. The Wildcats are coming off arguably their biggest win in program history at Wisconsin and a win vs Maryland would virtually guarantee them their first ever NCAA Tournament bid.
The Terps are coming off a somewhat shaky win vs Ohio State and tonight's game is that start of a season defining stretch that see the Terps at conference leaders Wisconsin on Saturday and then home against resurgent Minnesota next week.
This is not the time to falter. The Terps have the better athlete on virtually every position on the floor tonight and Maryland has shown that they understand how to execute an offensive scheme.
This game will be close throughout. A win and the Terps will be floating to Madison on high note.
PS- Look for me in the crowd! I'll be there cheering on our Terps!
