The preview is here. Tip is at 7:00 on ESPN2.
Do you believe in miracles? Or at least highly improbable events?
Random, Baseless Prediction: Going super-random and super-baseless worked yesterday (kind of ... in spirit, I mean), so we'll try it again: Maryland is in the bonus before Duke.
Why are you laughing?
Prediction: The closer this gets to tip, the more confident I feel that Maryland might actually be able to pull off the upset here. Or if not confident, then at least hopeful. That's ... well, it's probably not a great sign. Confidence and hope, with this team, invariably leads to disappointment. So in an effort to counteract that, I'm sticking with my initial prediction: that Maryland gives the Dukies a run, even leads either late in the first half or early in the second, and we all highlight the positives of a close-run loss. Turns into a free-throw shooting exhibition at the end to widen the score, which hovers around ten.
