Following their victory over Minnesota on Wednesday night, Maryland will face off against #21 Northwestern in their final home game of the season. The Wildcats are coming off of a loss to Illinois on Thursday night, but had won five games in a row before that. During that stretch, they pulled off upset victories over Purdue and Indiana. Chris Collins' squad has been led by senior guard Boo Buie, who's averaging 18 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. Despite losing their last game, he scored 35 points (56% of the team's scoring total). Their biggest strength is their defense, which KenPom ranks as the conference's third-best behind Rutgers and Purdue.

 

As things stand currently, Northwestern would be the #2 seed in the Big Ten Tournament while Maryland would be the #5. If the Terps want to obtain that coveted double-bye, a win in this game would go a long way towards that.

  • Maryland: #17 (#29 AdjO, #28 AdjD; #290 AdjT)
  • Northwestern: #42 (#102 AdjO, #20 AdjD; #285 AdjT)

Noon tip home games always carry some performance risk.  Less so for a bigger opponent, and this squad recently handled the same thing admirably against PSU, so hopefully they can bring the A game and get a big win.

Getting nervous

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

"Now OPS sucks.  Got it."

"Making his own olive brine is peak Mackus."

"I'm too hungover to watch a loss." - McNulty

Northwestern aggressively double-teaming anyone who enters the paint.

Two early fouls on Scott. He’ll be on the bench for awhile now.
