Big Ten Quarterfinals Thread

3/13/2015 10:50:10 AM For the first time since I was a junior in college, I will get to see the Maryland Terrapins play in their conference tournament.  The Terps check in as a #2 seed but I expect the matchup to be much more difficult than the standard 2/7 fare.

Unfortunately, Maryland does not matchup well with Indiana.  IU's guards are quicker than Maryland's and that has been hard for us to defend. The Hoosiers hit 11 3's last night against Northwestern.  If their hot hand continues, that may be too much for Maryland to overcome.

Indiana likes to run the floor and score.  Maryland hasn't scored more than 80 points since December 6th (look it up).  I expect the game to be competitive and my intuition tells me that the fact that Indiana needs the win more than we do could push them over the top.  I hope I'm wrong.

Go Terps!
