GameThread: Maryland Terrapins-Iowa Hawkeyes, NIT Semi-finals

Streeter Lecka

Get your preview right here. Game tips at approximately 9:00, though that's dependent on the Baylor-BYU game finishing up on time - given that they have a 7:00 tip, seems unlikely that this one will get underway by the scheduled time. Anyway, ESPN2 is where to watch, with Bob Wischusen, Dan Dakich (whom I don't hate), and Bill Raferty on the call - here's hoping for an Onions moment. Use this thread to discuss Baylor-BYU, if you so choose.

Random, Baseless Prediction: James Padgett sees the floor in the first half, makes a few heady #SeniorLeadership plays to quell an Iowa run, and then sits back down, not to be seen from again.

So really not that random or baseless, I suppose.

To buttress the R and B parts of this, well, if there's any game for a Logan Aronhalt dunk, surely this is it, no? I refuse to give up the dream.

Prediction: I can't see either team running away with it, but I'll stick with my gut from this morning and say that Maryland just squeaks it, spurred on by a late run where they were able to push the tempo and dictate the game. Terps by a handful.
