Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Maryland Terrapins

Maryland is still looking for a big win but their road record of 1-8 continues to haunt them. Rutgers is 0-7 on the road but they are just looking to finish the season strong. They upset Northwestern in overtime, 67-58 on Tuesday at home to break a seven-game losing streak. The Terps are coming off another road loss, this time to Nebraska on Tuesday, 70-66. Last season, Maryland crushed Rutgers, 79-59 on the road.

Sanders leads Rutgers over Northwestern

Corey Sanders scored the last six points of regulation, including draining a 3-pointer from the top of the arc with 5.9 seconds left, to allow Rutgers to send their game against Northwestern to overtime. The Scarlet Knights were down the entire game and never led until 2:16 left in overtime. The 67-58 win over the Wildcats allowed Rutgers to improve to 3-12 in the Big Ten. Sanders led the way with 30 points, six rebounds and four assists on 11-of-22 shooting in 41 minutes. Issa Thiam was the only other player in double figures with 10 points and eight rebounds. The Scarlet Knights shot 40 percent from the field and 5-of-19 from beyond the arc. Eugene Omoruyl chipped in with eight points and 10 rebounds in 39 minutes. They held Northwestern to just 37.7 percent from the field and 7-of-23 from beyond the arc (30.4%).

Sanders, a junior 6-2 guard from Florida, leads Rutgers with 14.5 points per game, 40 steals, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists on 42.3 percent shooting (31.5% 3pt). Forward DeShawn Freeman (6-7, 227) adds 11.4 points and 7.5 rebounds. On the season, Rutgers averages 65.5 points per game and shoots 39.9 percent from the floor. They allow 63.7 points per game on 40.3 percent shooting (31.7% 3pt).

Terps road woes continue

Freshman center Bruno Fernando scored 21 points, pulled down nine rebounds and dished out five assists but it wasn’t enough to beat Nebraska, who defeated the Terps, 70-66 on Tuesday from Lincoln. The Terps were up by two at the half but struggled to contain James Palmer Jr. who went off for 26 points, including 24 in the second half. The Terps were hurt on the boards (35-29) and got the line just nine times, while the Cornhuskers went 13-of-19. Kevin Huerter added 12 points and five rebounds, but fouled out in 32 minutes. He picked up his third foul in the first minute of the second half and that’s when the tide turned for Nebraska. The Terps also received very little from sophomore point guard Anthony Cowan, who had just seven points and seven assists on 3-of-13 shooting in 40 minutes.

Cowan leads the Terps in scoring with 15.9 points per game and in assists with 5.1 per game. But fatigue may be settling in as he’s played 40 minutes in threes straight games and 39 or more in nine straight games. On the season, The Terps are averaging 74.7 points per game on 48.1 percent shooting (38.8% 3pt). They allow 67.2 points per game on 40.8 percent shooting (33.8% 3pt).

NCAAB Trends:

Maryland is:

n/a

I went against Maryland last week against Northwestern and they played one of their best games of the season. They certainly play better at home though Rutgers has been competitive on the road. I like the Scarlet Knights as a double-digit dog.
