Double Thread- Basketball: Maryland vs Marshall; Football: Maryland vs Penn State

11/23/2018 10:36:20 AM

The basketball team has their first real test this afternoon. For the Terps, there is an opportunity to creep into the top25 with a win. Somehow, that is a possibility. Maryland has looked the part at times, but at others, they have looked very pedestrian. The Terps have the 319th ranked 3PT shooting team in the nation. It downright atrocious. The fact that they are sniffing the top 25 is surprising but they really have played anyone.

Enter Marshall. In a scheduling oddity, Marshall and Maryland have shared three common opponents in 5 games. Both teams have played NCA&T, Mount St Mary’s and Hofstra. Marshall enjoyed similar success against those teams to Maryland’s performance.  All that indicates that the Terps will have their hands full. It won’t help that Comcast will be nearly empty with a late afternoon Black Friday start time.

Let’s hope the Terps squeak it out and aren’t looking ahead to UVA.
