Maryland Terrapins-Duke Blue Devils GameThread: Let's Do This

Preview is here. Tip at 6:00 on ESPN. Maryland's probably going to lose by at least a dozen, but I don't care. It's Duke. I'm excited.

Random, Baseless Prediction: Remember when Nick Faust had quick hands and gambled a bunch and forced a ton of turnovers? Yeah, we see that Nick Faust again: he forces three turnovers, all of which are turned into fast break buckets on the other end. It's not Turgeon's way, but the team needs to loosen up and play a little more regardless.

Prediction: Almost every fiber of my being wants to call this a miraculous Terps win that pushes them back on the bubble. Unfortunately, the highly rational part of my brain doesn't, and that's the part that writes these posts. Duke by 14.

That's a pretty good sign, too, given how poor my predictions have been of late. I blame the team for being so inconsistent.

Guessing Game: Alex Len meets Mason Plumlee once again. Plumlee was easily the better of the two last time around, but Len is a fickle Ukrainian seven-footer. Give me his final statline, points plus rebounds, with blocks as the tiebreaker.
