Maryland has lost its last three straight games, and will host Iowa on Thursday night for a chance to end that streak. The Hawkeyes currently hold a record of 15-7 (5-6), and won their last game against Minnesota on Sunday. Their worst losses of the season have come to Penn State and Rutgers, and their best wins have come over Indiana and Utah State.

In true Fran McCaffery fashion, Iowa has one of the best offenses in the country coupled with a rather lackluster defense. Senior guard Jordan Bohannon made waves when he announced he'd be returning for this season, but he's averaging just 10 points per game and has only made 35% of his shots. The Hawkeyes are led instead by sophomore forward Keegan Murray, who is averaging 22 points and 9 rebounds per game while shooting at a 55% clip from the field and 35% from beyond the arc. He's had six double-doubles so far this season, including in their last game.

Let's hope the Terps play well enough tonight to make crazy Fran, lose his mind a time or two.  It is usually great entertainment.

He missed their last game after testing positive for COVID, so I'm sure he'll have an abundance of pent-up aggression tonight.

 

Here's the always-handy FranCon Alert System, which I never go into an Iowa game without.

Maryland is 0/5 from the field, but 5/5 from beyond the arc. Keep jacking ‘em up.

Xavier Green with 5 quick points, but unless Maryland plays better defense, they can not keep up with Iowa.

Iowa on pace for over 100 points in this game. Maryland’s defense has no answer.

Iowa is just not missing, and are up 11.

 

Maryland shooting well but it does not seem to matter.

Ayala muscles his way in for a basket and is fouled.

Biggest difference in this game are Maryland’s turnovers and the number of second-chance opportunities they’ve given Iowa.
