Maryland Terrapins-Niagara Purple Eagles: The GameThread

And so the postseason begins.

Streeter Lecka

Get your preview right here. Game tips off at 7:00 on ESPN2 in the Comcastle, which is likely to be rather docile, unfortunately, given the students are on spring break. Still, here's hoping a decent crowd makes it out and can be as rowdy as possible. On the call are Mike Patrick and Laphonso Ellis.

Mike Patrick. Oy.

Random, Baseless Prediction: Nick Faust and Dez Wells, who have carried the offensive load of late for Maryland, slow down. Alex Len is decent, but the big producer? Seth Allen, who's due for one of those crazy 18-points-out-of-nowhere games that remind you he can score at an absurd rate when things are clicking.

Prediction: I still think Maryland comes out a bit flat, firstly because the arena's probably going to be lacking a bit of energy and they'll be tired, both mentally and emotionally, not to mention probably still slightly disappointed to be in the NIT. But Niagara will be rusty themselves, and once the competitive juices get flowing I'm not expecting any problems. Terps by at least 13.
