Still in search of their first conference win, Maryland will travel north to face off against Northwestern on Wednesday night. The Wildcats currently hold a record of 8-5 (1-3), with their lone conference victory coming against the Terps in early December. They've lost their last three games in a row to Michigan State, Penn State, and Ohio State.

 

Chris Collins' squad is led by senior forward Pete Nance, who leads them in points, rebounds, and blocks per game. He's shooting 51% from the floor, and 45% from beyond the arc. Junior Boo Buie is their best backcourt player, and leads the team with 6 assists per game. As a team, Northwestern averages 19 assists per game and just 9 turnovers.

Outside of winning the conference tournament, this is a must win game if there’s any hope of a turnaround. It may be have to win the conference tourney territory already.

Northwestern favored by 5.5.

Marcus Dockery didn't travel with the team for this game due to a death in his family.

Just playing terribly. No rhythm or consistency at all. But only down 4.

Ayala IMO needs to be more selfish hunting shots.

Maryland is tough to watch and even worse when playing a team like NW which is excruciating to watch

Ayala gives the Terps the 27-26 lead from deep. He’s got 10.
