As part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge this season, Maryland will travel to Louisville, KY to face the struggling Cardinals on Tuesday night. Head coach Kenny Payne has yet to win a game as their head coach, as they currently hold a 0-6 (0-0 ACC) record. One-point losses to Bellarmine, Wright State, and Appalachian State were one thing, but they suffered three blowout defeats to Arkansas, Texas Tech, and Cincinnati as part of the Maui Invitational Tournament.
Senior guard El Ellis is their best player by a good bit, leading them with 17 points and 4 assists per game. As a team, they're averaging an atrocious 18 turnovers and just 8 assists per game. They're also shooting just 40% from the field, including 30% from beyond the arc.
- Maryland: #24 (#17 AdjO, #40 AdjD; #234 AdjT)
- Louisville: #171 (#228 AdjO, #114 AdjD; #190 AdjT)
