Your game preview is right here. Game tips at 7:00 on ESPNU, with Mike Patrick (argh) and LaPhonso Ellis once again on the call.

Random, Baseless Prediction: It's another Dez Wells game. Especially in the second half, when Maryland will be able to get out and run more as the game starts to break down and open up around them. Have a feeling he'll hit 20 tonight.

Prediction: There are a lot of reasons for Denver to stick around in this game, and ultimately I think they will. But unless Maryland simply doesn't show up mentally, it's tough to see them losing: there's so much more height, so much more depth, so much more rebounding, so much more athleticism. It might take Mark Turgeon a bit to work out the rotation, and the sleep environment means a big start is unlikely. But I expect the script here to run much like it did against Niagara, only against a better opponent, which means a margin of high-single-digits.
