How to watch Maryland vs. Purdue live online: Time, TV schedule and more

Everything you need to know as the Terps travel to West Lafayette.

Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

The Terps remain on the road following their 64-57 loss in Champagne to Illinois and head to Indiana to take on the Purdue Boilermakers. Maryland easily had their worst outing of the season, losing just their second game all year to an 11-5 Illini team playing without their star Rayvonte Rice. Maryland had a lid on their basket for much of the second half and were outscored 38-29 in the half. The Terps improved mightily this season at the free throw line from last season (thanks Charles Mitchell), but shot just 55 percent against Illinois and left eight points on the line.

Maryland still carries their highest ranking since February of 2003 into the game against the Boilermakers, as both teams are searching for their third conference win of the season. Purdue beat both Minnesota and Michigan at home, but are coming off of a close loss in Madison against powerhouse Wisconsin Badgers. Purdue is a big team, featuring two 7-footers who know how to snatch rebounds and protect their lane. The Boilermakers have four players averaging double digits this year, but no player averages more than 11 points a contest.

The numbers

Rankings and records: Maryland is 14-2 and ranked No. 11 in the AP Poll and No. 9 in the Coaches Poll. Purdue is 10-6 and ranked No. 64 in the KenPom rankings.

Odds: Maryland opened as 1-point favorites. The line has since flipped, with Purdue as 1.5-point favorites.

KenPom's prediction: Maryland, 68-67. 57% chance Maryland wins.

Two things at stake

Maryland can still salvage a solid trip if they escape West Lafayette with a win. Losing to Purdue would mean an even conference record and a big drop in the top 25.

Purdue needs a statement win on their home floor. They've lost some questionable games to Gardner Webb, Kansas State and North Florida, so they can't afford to drop too many more games if they tend on dancing come March.

One big matchup

Damonte Dodd vs. A.J. Hammons: After two great games in Maryland's Big Ten debut, Damonte Dodd relapsed a little bit Wednesday against Illinois, only scoring two points on two attempts. The big man for Maryland has been energetic and very involved on the glass and will need to bring his best performance against the very talented center, A.J. Hammons. Hammons is a shot blocking machine who can certainly disrupt and clog the lane for Purdue.
