#16 Maryland vs Ohio State

The Terps will have their hands full tonight.  Road games in the B1G are a grind.  The officiating has been universally horrible with a bias towards the home team.  The teams fish in similar talent pools so pulling out road wins is a rarity. 

Maryland has had good success but only when the defense is playing at an elite level.  The last two games have been far from elite. Both Indiana and Northwestern shot better than 50% from the floor. Few teams can win when they give their opponents open looks.  Tonight is no different.  If the Buckeyes hit more than 50% of their shots, we will lose.  Badly.  If the Terps can regain their defensive mojo, then we have a shot.  The wins at Iowa State and Oklahoma State occurred because we held those teams to poor shooting percentages.

A win, and the Terps would be sitting pretty at 19-3, 7-2 in the conference with a home game against Penn State next week to get to 20 wins with 9 games to go.  Who would have thought?

#8 Maryland vs Northwestern

Maryland is licking its wounds after a pounding at Indiana.  The Hoosiers shot 68% from three on 22 attempts.  That is an unbelievable rate of success.  While the Terps got pasted by 19 points, there is reason to believe that the Hoosiers played out of their minds and probably would have beaten anyone on Thursday. If Indiana had merely hit 40% of t [...] Read More »

#8 Maryland vs #23 Indiana

Maryland played one of their most complete games of the year on Saturday.  The Terps whipped a motivated Michigan State squad.  It's becoming clearer that the Terps are at their best when Melo Trimble and Jake Layman are the top scoring options.  Dez Wells has been the #1 option for the last two years but the offense just doesn't perform as wel [...] Read More »

#14 Maryland vs Michigan State

Today's game should be a barn burner.  The Terps had perhaps the win of the season with their double OT win at Michigan State. The Spartans and Coach Izzo were decidedly unhappy with the result.  With a week to prepare and in desperate need of a signature win, I expect Michigan State to give the Terps their best shot. At 16-2, the Terps are play [...] Read More »

#14 Maryland vs Rutgers

On paper, the home game against Rutgers should be the easiest game on Maryland's remaining schedule. That was until Rutgers beat the #4 team in the nation, Wisconsin on Sunday. In college basketball, anything can happen so it's hard to discount a possible upset although I highly doubt it.  Maryland has played well at home all year and Rutgers b [...] Read More »

#9 Maryland vs Purdue

Wednesday's game was definitely a set back but road games are always hard and the Terps were due for an off night.  Lucky for me, it coincided with me being in Vegas so I got the double whammy of a gambling loss. Now, good teams tend to bounce back after tough losses.  Maryland is a good team so I expect the Terps to play better today.  However [...] Read More »

# 9 Maryland vs Illinois

Maryland capped off an perfect opening week to Big Ten play with a convincing win against a pesky Minnesota team.  The Gophers were desperate to avoid an 0-2 start and yet the Terps beat them anyway. Now, the Terps travel to Champaign to face an equally desperate Illini team.  Illinois has started Big Ten play with an 0-2 record and can ill affo [...] Read More »

#12 Maryland vs Minnesota

The Terps will try to avoid a letdown against a game Minnesota squad.  The Terps gutted out a tremendous victory in East Lansing earlier this week.  The game had everything.  Poor play.  Dramatic shots. A Come-from-behind win.  Now the question is can the Terps keep it going. On paper, Minnesota is a good team.  They are second in the nation in [...] Read More »

#12 Maryland vs Michigan State

The Big Ten season has arrived.  Maryland has come through the out-of-conference slate in near pristine condition.  The lone blemish a loss to a top 5 while the Terps were without the services of their best player. Now the Terps will have to deal with the rigors of life in the Big Ten and that means road game in difficult environments.  East La [...] Read More »
