Fully expect Northwestern to be the opponent Friday night, but who knows? Regardless of who it is, think this part of the bracket sets up well for Maryland.

Umm, no need to worry about Ohio State. Rutgers/Northwestern Thursday night.

I can't believe Ohio State lost to Rutgers last night... ouch. All but cements that we will be playing Northwestern tomorrow night. They're on the cusp of finally making the big dance, though they've lost four of their last six. Terps fans better make this a home court tomorrow night, I'll be there! 

 

I'm confident in the Terps tomorrow night. Last time we played Northwestern, Scottie Lindsey was still out sick from mono, so will be interesting to see how much different it is for the Terps this time around with him playing. Although, he hasn't been the same since coming back, only reaching double digit points once in his return. 

 

Go Terps!

Tickets starting at $90 a piece on SeatGeek, which means I'll be watching from my couch. But I will be price-watching tomorrow from my desk in D.C., just in case.

Metro in and scalp. Fans often sell their session tickets after their team loses. Terps would be the second game in both Fri and Sat sessions.

Friend and I were thinking about that, but Verizon Center doesn't allow re-entry.

Northwestern beat Rutgers 83-61 last night, so the Terps will face the Wildcats tonight (approx. 9:00 PM ET tip) on BTN.

 

The win featured an incredible 31-0 run by Northwestern, who shot 60% from the field. They dominated the boards by a 33:19 ratio, and were co-led in scoring by junior G Scottie Lindsey and sophomore F Vic Law, who each had 16 points. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is in the city, as her son Charlie Hall is a walk-on at Northwestern. He played for a minute at the end of the game last night.

 

Here's a quick statistical breakdown for you all:

 

Northwestern

 

Field Goals: 44%

3-Pointers: 34%

Free Throws: 75%

Assists/game:Turnovers/game: 16:10

Rebounds/game: 37

 

Maryland

 

Field Goals: 45%

3-Pointers: 36%

Free Throws: 70%

Assists/game:Turnovers/game: 14:13

Rebounds/game: 36

It also took Melo dropping 32 to beat NW last time. Something tells me some other guys will need to step up in this one. Huerter the most has faded down the stretch. Bigs can't get dominated on the boards.

No gimmie here. Felt good going against Nebraska in the same situation last year. This one...hope for a win but I'm far less confident.

NW played awful that game, too.  I don't think that game matters much for today.

 

Even with Lindsay back, though, NW isn't particularly deep and they played yesterday.  I think fatigue could be a factor for them as it definitely was the last time we played.  We did a great job of harassing McIntosh over the entire floor, I expect to see that again.

Not sure how to feel about this game.  I think the Terps win but would not want to bet on it.

 

Rutgers laid down pretty easy last night so, I don't look for fatigue to be a big issue.

 

If the Terps play well they should win.  If not many here will be firing coaches and cursing players tonight.

Getting stoked. Having friends over to drink. May have to do a power hour. It's been years. Probably a horrible idea. Hope the crowd is intense tonight. Tix down to $60 on StubHub... bet they will drop further.

Unless you're doing the century club don't bother.

Edward 40-hands is also a good idea

Maybe it is because I am a homer, but I think if the Terps win tonight they will play in the Championship game on Sunday.
