Good news for the Terps that Xavier doesn't use much zone. Looking at the stats, these two teams are very similar. Both shoot the three well (Maryland a bit better), struggle at the FT line, have issues with turnovers, and average about 75 points per game. Like Chris mentioned, rebounding margin favors Xavier in a big way, but overall rebounding totals are about the same. Terps have a deeper bench, going about 10-deep.


Keeping Dodd out of foul trouble will be important. They're a different team with him on the court. Not only for his defense, but for his outlet passing. They've had nearly a week off, so they should be plenty rested and ready to roll. They've also been down in Florida since Monday.


Go Terps!
