- In case you missed it, Mark Turgeon resigned earlier in the year
Maryland is an underachieving inconsistent team. Picked to finish in the top 4 of the conference, they've had their moments in big wins over Illinois and Florida. Everything else? It's been a mess. Turgeon was holding this thing together and Danny Manning is no Mark Turgeon. The inconsistent nature of this team makes one think about the inconsistency of Nebraska under Fred Hoiberg....not great.
Nebraska, like all inconsistent teams, tends to bounce back after getting their teeth kicked in and they probably will tonight. Maryland, they play well on the road sometimes and sometimes they don't You're truly gambling tonight if you're betting on which team will let the other one win. Likely the team hitting 3s win it. Let's pray it's Nebraska.
Prediction: Nebraska 74 - Maryland 70
