After finishing their regular season with a loss to Michigan State, 10-seed Maryland will have a rematch against the 7-seed Spartans in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday evening. If this sounds familiar, these two teams met in the same round of the conference tournament last year, a game the Terps won by a score of 68-57.

The winner of this game will move on to face 2-seed Wisconsin on Friday evening.

Sparty isn’t good. Winnable game

I thought Maryland was going to beat MSU yesterday and they missed their wake up call and only played 20 minutes.  They can win the game, but MSU's size really gave Wahab and Reese problems.

Maryland had a better attack for Michigan State in the second half last night. If they can put together a full game like that, there’s no reason why they can’t come away with a win.

Playing the same team twice in one week is never easy, and Maryland likely has the advantage after losing the first matchup.

Winner gets Wisconsin. 

Who phoned it in versus Nebraska.  The winner is probably getting one motivated team.

Michigan State enters this game as 2.5-point favorites.

I picked Maryland to win last Sunday, and they almost got away with playing only 20 minutes.  Reese and Wahab have to play better than they did on Sunday if Maryland is to win.  They have a good chance.

I would love for the Terps and Manning to get 2 conference tourney wins.  Turgeon never won more than 1 game.  3-6 overall.

I trust Izzo to adjust from this past weekend a lot more than I do Manning, and for that reason, I'll go with the Spartans today.
