Random, Baseless Prediction: Pe`Shon Howard leads Maryland in scoring in the first half. Not sure if that'd be a great sign or a terrible one.
Prediction: Like I said, I'm mighty afeared about the possibility of laying an egg here; the combination of the occasion, the generally poor finish to the year, and reacting to the gutpunch of the Virginia loss specifically is a worrisome set. But unless Maryland is really bad or Wake Forest is more or less flawless, the Terps will win; they're the better team and they match up well to begin with anyway. Maryland by single digits, but a win nonetheless.
