After taking Purdue to the wire in their last road loss over the weekend, Maryland returns home to face off against Wisconsin in College Park on Wednesday night. The Badgers currently hold a record of 12-6 (4-4), and won the first matchup between these two teams in early December. While they were ranked in the Top 15 as recently as early January, they've since lost four of their last five games. In three of those losses however, they were without star forward Tyler Wahl. He's since returned from injury, and had 10 points in a victory over Penn State and 11 in their loss to Northwestern on Monday night. Due to COVID-19 issues within the Wildcats' program, that game was moved from Saturday to Monday night. That gives Wisconsin a very short turnaround for this matchup.

I didn’t know Ken Pom did such things… Is that part of their premium package?

Interesting.  I think this will tell us a lot about the progress Maryland is or is not making.  Wisconsin makes a game ugly and plays great defense.  The Terps are going to play with the effort that they did in the second half to match the defensive intensity and make some outside shots.  Let’s get some run for Cornish and Batchelor to see if they can drop a few three’s.

For fun, this is the current Kenpom predictions for the rest of the year but it'll change if Maryland loses their next 3 games by 20 points or wins their next 3 by 20, etc

This is a great start from Maryland. Fantastic energy, hitting shots. Problem is, Wisconsin’s doing the same thing lol

Really good game so far.

I think the fast pace will eventually work in the Terps favor.

I was surprised when he rose up for the one he missed against Purdue, wasn’t sure he had those kind of hops. Apparently he does.

Absolutely, and if they’re able to keep hitting shots they can set up their pressure and dictate that pace.
