#5 Wisconsin v. #14 Maryland 2/24


Recommended Posts

This, as well at the B1G tournament, are Maryland's two big opportunities to really get some momentum and confidence going before the NCAA Tournament.

Confidence and momentum, to me, are the most important things for this team moving forward. If we lose the game tonight, it's really no big deal. But we have a HUGE opportunity to prove to ourselves that we can compete. Atmosphere will be amazing. The team needs to keep it going.

Wisconsin is an incredibly talented team but they're not particularly deep. To win, Maryland will have to shoot well and rebound. Maryland hasn't been doing either well recently. A slow start will be crippling. Wisconsin will slow everything wayyyyyyyyy down and a comeback will be near impossible. Each possession will be especially important tonight with Wisconsin's pace of play.

This is the first top-15 matchup at the Comcast (or whatever) Center since 2003.

Even as a homer for the Terps I just don't see this upset happening. They're only chance seems to be trying to contain Kaminsky and force Wis to shoot the 3 and we've already seen how that has been turning out for them recently. The Terps big 3 also need help from somewhere (Pack, Nickens, Dodd and Graham need to contain the inside, etc...all the above) or they have no chance with one of the best offenses in basketball.
