After snapping their five-game losing streak with a road win over Nebraska, Maryland will return home to host Penn State on Monday night. The Nittany Lions currently hold a record of 11-12 (6-9), and have won two games in a row over Michigan State and Minnesota.

 

They lost their two leading scorers from last season to the transfer portal (Izaiah Brockington and Myreon Jones), but added guard Jalen Pickett from Siena who currently leads them in points and assists per game. As a team, they have a 44% field goal percentage and are shooting at a 34% clip from beyond the arc. They're led by their defense, which is the 4th-best unit in the conference.

I believe Maryland has lost 4 in a row to Penn State.  That needs to end.

Correct, last time they beat them was back in 2018.

Could definitely be 5. They've looked real solid their past couple of games. 

 

Also, just realized looking at the schedule, realistically to finish .500 or better at this point, they'd need to win 3 or 4 games in the Big Ten Tournament, plus PSU & Minnesota, neither of which are sure things. This is assuming L's @ Indiana and Michigan St and home against Ohio St. Could see them picking one of those up perhaps, but either way, basically they're locked in to a sub .500 season. Just weird.

It is things like this, that make me cringe, when I hear national commentators and writers, praise the job Turgeon did.   Maryland SHOULD NEVER lose 4 in a row to Penn State in basketball.

I at this point would be shocked if they got to .500

It surprises me, whenever Maryland is favorite.  I think Ayala is going to have to contribute offensively tonight for Maryland to win.

Refs are really letting them play tonight, a stark contrast to the Nebraska game.
