Maryland Terrapins vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets: The GameThread

First of all: no Ravens and/or NFL talk. Please.

Now: game tips at 4:00, with ACC Network as TV. If you don't have an ACC Network affiliate (and you might be surprised) you can watch on ESPN3 or check the usual streaming locations, like FirstRowSports.

Random, Baseless Prediction: Alex Len fouls out, but has the best game of his career otherwise. I feel like it's time for an Alex Len national breakout after the pretty unimpressive Wake game, and I don't think GT has the size to consistently bother him.

Prediction: It's so tough to really assess this game. Maryland is probably a superior team to Georgia Tech and if they played 10 times in a vacuum, Maryland would win 6 or 7 of them. But life isn't a vacuum, and Georgia Tech is playing over their heads. I'll go with my gut and say Maryland just barely nips this one, somewhere around 76-71.

For today's guessing game: with Terrell Stoglin injured, there might be an extra onus put back on our ol' friend Nick Faust. Give me how many points he scores tonight, with number of minutes + airballs as the tiebreaker (22 minutes + 2 airballs = 24). Go.
