    These are actual the 2nd most used lineups over the last 5 games. Maryland has an injury and McVeigh is currently out of the rotation.


    Notable Injuries: Michal Cekovsky and Damonte Dodd

    These are Maryland's centers which means the Terps are playing a Nebraska type small ball where they roll out Ed Morrow sized forwards as centers.


    The Skinny

    It's a bit of a rebuilding year for the Terps who lost 4 starters to the NBA or graduation from their Sweet 16 run. Thus Maryland is rolling out 3 four-star freshmen along with whatever healthy post player is available along with Melo Trimble. The Terrapins haven't played a super impressive schedule but seem to know how to finish out games having beaten four of their better opponents in one possession games.


    Both these teams are the young unpredictable type but expect Nebraska to attack off of Maryland turnovers and to fearlessly attack the rim with the lack of height from Maryland. Miles has played Maryland close most every matchup but can't seem to get over the hump. With what should be a relatively dead crowd is this where Nebraska finally gets the better of Maryland?


    Prediction: Maryland 74 - Nebraska 69
