Maryland is set to take on Providence in the finals of the Paradise Jam in St. Thomas Monday evening at 10:00 PM. The Terps will be facing one of their toughest opponents of the season when they take on the Friars, who are a very experienced team with some very talented players.
So how did each team get here? Maryland defeated Marist Friday evening, 68-43, and Northern Iowa Sunday night, 80-66. Providence beat Vanderbilt, 67-60 on Friday and La Salle, 71-63 Sunday night. So what will happen tonight? It WILL LIKELY be a close game, but Providence is a very experienced team, lead by a senior guard who can do a little bit of everything, which is always a plus.
Time for some predictions. Instead of over/under, we'll do a little game of "Which will be higher."
# of Layman 3-pointers or Dez Wells rebounds?

And finally, who finishes with more points tonight, Terps or Friars?
