Following a disappointing loss to Ohio State on Wednesday night, #21 Maryland will head back on the road to face off against Penn State in their final game of the regular season. Seeding in the Big Ten Tournament is nowhere close to being set, and the Terps have a chance to finish with anywhere from the #2 to #8 seeds. Obviously, a win in this game would go a long way to earning them the coveted double-bye.

 

Maryland won the first meeting between these teams a few weeks ago by a score of 74-68. Since that game, Micah Shrewsberry's team has been red hot, winning four of their last five matchups (three of which came on the road). Much like the Buckeyes, Penn State is a team that excels on the offensive end of the court while typically struggling defensively.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I’ve got a feeling the Terps show up and steal this one. But I can’t expect that in any way. Penn States snipers are finely tuned right now and carrying the team. Defense should travel, but it didn’t to Columbus on Wednesday night. Still, the Terps are the better, more well rounded team, and I think they want to finish on a high note at a road venue not far from home. Gun to my head, they answer the call and win this one on Sunday.

Hopefully the home noon game curse works in the Terps favor this time!

Hopfull they can somehow find a win and do at least some damage in the B10 tourny. Get off the 8-9 seed line.

Looks like a carbon copy of the Ohio State game so far. Reese playing extremely well, no one else can hit the broad side of a barn.

22-15 Maryland at the under-8. Playing much better after a slow first few minutes.

Martinez’s three-point shooting has probably been the biggest pleasant surprise this season.

What a turnaround for Martinez this year. Another great job by Willard.

Maryland is the Tennessee of the Big Ten. When they score, scary. Even when they struggle, defense tends to keep them in it and even steal a few here and there.
