Following their season-opening win over Mount St. Mary's, Maryland travels down to North Carolina this weekend for a two-game tournament at Harrah's Cherokee Center in Asheville. Their first game comes against Davidson on Friday night, with a second matchup scheduled for Sunday afternoon versus either Clemson or UAB. The Wildcats also won their first game of the season, 86-63 over Washington & Lee on Monday night. Matt McKillop is in his second year as their head coach after taking over for his father, who coached them for 33 seasons.

Expect to win this game although early season, you never know. Clemson looks tough. That would be a good early season barometer. I hope we get that matchup.

Maryland enters this game as 10.5-point favorites. ESPN gives them an 83.9% chance to win.

I am looking forward to seeing the freshman tonight.

Willard played 11 men against Mt St Mary's, I they play a few less against Davidson.

Davidson doubling Reese when he receives the ball in the post.

Harris Smith. That was nice. Carey wasn't capable of that.

Terps getting a ton of great looks from beyond the arc but still haven’t knocked one down.

The cold shooting from the last few minutes of the Mount St. Mary’s game has carried over. Maryland 4/13 from the field to start.

Davidson is camping everyone in the lane and daring Maryland to make a 3. They can’t, and it’s been an ugly offensive performance so far.

That was a great design by Willard to get Batchelor open off the in-bounds with 2 seconds on the shot clock.

20-14.

MD Cleary trying to figure out the youth and rotation...

But Reese, Young, and Scott need to be goo enough that it doesn't matter vs Davidson.

22-18.

These early-season tournament games have a tendency to start really ugly. Have to hope things start to click better in the second half, because this hasn’t looked good so far.

Really wish Scott would've just moved on. Never been a huge fan.
