If Virginia was a must-win, this is a mega-must-win game. Maryland has gotten some favors from some bubble teams, but the consensus is still two wins. Before anyone can even mutter the words "Wake Forest", however, they have to get through NCSt, and they aren't a pushover. Check out homertuck's preview in the link above; my opinion is very similar. I think NCSt starts slow, but the Terps can't put them away, and end up taking the lead at some point in the early second half. Terps storm back to win a close one, 71-62, with the game closer than the score (maybe another last-second three from Vaz). I know that that's Maryland blueprint, but that just makes it more likely to be correct.
