Maryland will hope to bounce back from their recent skid when they welcome in Miami to the Comcast Center this week. The Terps have had a few disappointing results as of late, losing their last two games at North Carolina State and against Pittsburgh. However, Maryland was able to compete and play with the Panthers, and some of the success they saw in that game could give them some things to build on going forward.
Miami will also head into the game with a two game losing streak, dropping a game against Duke before playing a tight game with undefeated Syracuse until ultimately losing. Similarly to Maryland, Miami's effort against a higher ranked opponent in their last game could provide them with some confidence for this game.
This is the only game scheduled between these two foes for this season. With Maryland leaving for the Big Ten after this year, and with a lack of lustrous history between these programs, this could very well be the final matchup between the Terps and Hurricanes.
Rankings and records: Neither team is ranked. Maryland stands at 11-9 (3-4 and tied for eighth in the ACC) and Miami holds a 10-9 record (2-5 and tied for 11th in the ACC). The series record is 13-8 in favor of the Hurricanes. However, Maryland is 4-1 all-time against Miami when the game is played in College Park.
Vegas: Maryland is favored by 5.5 points.
