Ohio Bobcats (4-3 SU, 1-2-1- ATS, 4-0 O/U) at Maryland Terrapins (7-3 SU, 4-4 ATS, 3-4 O/U)

Ohio University travels to College Park to take on Maryland on Thursday night. The Bobcats are coming off an 80-37 win over Coppin State on Friday. The Terps broke a 2-game losing streak with an overtime win over Illinois, 92-91 on Sunday night.

Bobcats defense leads way against Eagles

In Ohio’s 43-point win over Coppin State, the Eagles were held to 13-of-61 from the field (21.3%) and 3-of-25 from beyond the arc (12%). Ohio State was led by Mike Laster, who had 18 points on 8-of-12 shots, while Kevin Mickle, a grad transfer from Florida Gulf Coast, chipped in with 15 points in 15 minutes. The Bobcats shot 42 percent from the field and 8-of-20 (40%) from 3-point range. They also outrebounded the Eagles by 14 and forced 15 turnovers.

On the season, Ohio is averaging 80.3 points per game on 45.6 percent shooting (36.9% 3pt). They allow 73.4 points per game on 40 percent shooting (31.1% 3pt). Laster leads Ohio in scoring with 16.1 points per game on 49 percent shooting (29.4% 3pt). Junior guard Jordan Dartris adds 14.7 points per game on 41.2 percent 3-point shooting and 43.6 percent overall shooting. Freshman guard Teyvion Kirk chips in with 14.4 points per game and 5.1 rebounds on 47.6 percent shooting.

Fernando saves Terps

Maryland had a 22-point lead in the second half against Illinois before giving it right back, thanks to very sloppy play (25 turnovers). The Terps needed freshman Bruno Fernando (6-10, 240) to put back a last-second shot in regulation to send it to overtime at 75-all. Sophomore guard Anthony Cowan was fouled with less than a second left and made the first foul shot to give Maryland the win (he missed the second on purpose). Cowan led the Terps with 27 points on 9-of-15 shooting in 43 minutes, while sophomore forward Justin Jackson added 20 points and six boards. Sophomore guard Kevin Huerter chipped in with 17 points, seven rebounds and four assists. The Terps shot 59.3 percent from the field and outrebounded the Illini bu 10.

Cowan leads the Terps in scoring with 16.5 points and 4.0 assists, while shooting 48.3 percent from the floor (41.5% 3pt). On the season, the Terps average 78.5 points per game on 49.7 percent shooting (38.5% 3pt), but they also average 16 turnovers per game. On defense, they are giving up 66.3 points per game on 40 percent shooting (30.8% 3pt).

NCAAB Trends:

Ohio is:

n/a

Maryland is:

  • 3-8 ATS last 11 home games.
  • 3-8 ATS last 11 Thursday games.

It’s tough to take a Maryland team that turns it over so much, even against non-pressing teams. They can win games but will have problems covering the big number.

Pick: Ohio U.
