    Player to watch: Melo Trimble

     

    Trimble has been hitting some killer shots when needed but if you look at his long range shooting numbers they're down this year as Melo is only hitting from 34% from 3 this year and 29% in conference. He is however distributing the ball more in this stacked offensive team and we've yet to hold him under 20 points in his career.

     

     

     

    Player to watch: Diamond Stone

     

    5 star Frosh Center Stone has been one of the best offensive rebounders in the country along with almost always scoring in double digits. Stone put up 39 points earlier against Penn St and is a nightmare matchup for a Husker squad that was just torched by AJ Hammons.

     



    The Skinny

     

     

    Maryland trots in a top 5 squad that is battling for the B1G conference championship and has Final 4 aspirations, adding Stone and Duke transfer Rasheed Sulaimon to most of last year's break through squad. However, the Terps have been playing most of their road games fairly close and probably are not overly focused on a Nebraska squad on a two game losing streak.

     

    The Terps have had off-nights on offense and won this year. Maryland's only 3 loses of the season have also been their 3 least efficient defensive games. In some regards, this more offensively talented Nebraska squad is better equipped to win vs Maryland than any of their better defensive teams of the last two years.

     

    While it will be tempting to fire away from 3, the Huskers should keep continuing to attack the rim and crash the boards against a Maryland team surprisingly vulnerable on the boards. There will be chances to force turnovers but most any press will be to run shot clock against a team like Maryland that will punish most pressure with easy transition finishes.

     

    Unfortunately, the Husker's best game still might not be enough to take down Maryland.

     



    Prediction: Maryland 78 - Nebraska 68 with a 65% Chance of Runza
