A 20-point road loss to Pitt earlier this month left a lot of room for improvement for the Terps, as they looked ahead to a chance at redemption in College Park in just a few weeks. That time has come and Maryland will host the Panthers this Saturday evening in the Comcast Center. The Terps are 2-3 so far in the month of January and after showing signs of life in their last home game, a hard-fought win over Notre Dame, they laid yet another dud against NC State, who was missing their best player T.J. Warren, on the road.
They will face a tall task against Pitt, who have only lost two games this season and are winners of seven of their last eight. The Panthers boast one of the nation's top defenses, allowing less than 60 points per game to opposing teams, which could bode well for them against a Maryland team that likes to turn the ball over, A LOT.
Rankings and records: Pitt comes into the game ranked No. 20 in the AP Poll and has a record of 17-2 (5-1 ACC). The Terps are unranked and currently hold an 11-8 (3-3 ACC) record. This will be the ninth time the schools have met and right now the Terps hold the advantage in the all-time series 5-3.
Vegas: No line yet.
