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

All you need to know to follow the Terps take on the Gophers.

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

After a stunning double overtime win over Michigan State in their first ever Big Ten conference game, Maryland takes the court for the first time in 2015 as the Terps host the Minnesota Gophers. Minnesota somewhat surprisingly dropped their first conference game to Purdue 72-68 after entering conference play with an impressive 11-2 record with the only two losses coming to Louisville and a tough St. John's team. The Gophers are a deep team who excel at causing turnovers but struggle with grabbing boards on the defensive end.

Maryland will look to continue their high, as they carry a six game win streak into their first ever home Big Ten conference game. The questions regarding Dez Wells' health seemed to be answered last game in East Lansing, as the senior leader played 40 minutes in just his second game back against the Spartans. Evan Smotrcyz delivered a spark off the bench and the continued development of Damonte Dodd is shaping up nicely as he is a staple defensively down low for the Terps.

The numbers

Rankings and records: Maryland is 13-1 and ranked No. 12 in the AP Poll. Minnesota is 11-3 and ranked No. 29 in the KenPom rankings.

Odds: The Terps are 4 point favorites

KenPom's prediction: Maryland, 74-68. Terps given a 71% chance of winning.

Two things at stake

Maryland can continue to climb the rankings with a home win against Minnesota coupled with a battle-tested road win versus Michigan State.

Minnesota would fall to 0-2 in the conference with a loss to the Terps and are slated to face a tough Ohio State team next. Starting off 0-3 is a less than ideal way to start conference play.

One big matchup

Damonte Dodd vs. Maurice Walker: Sophomore Damonte Dodd is growing up right before Maryland fans' eyes and his development will be tested right when Dodd and senior Maurice Walker tip off against each other. Walker comes up huge on the glass, is a perennial shot blocker and averages 12 points a game, but Dodd is coming off one of his best showings as a Terp. In a series of plays that ignited Maryland, Dodd made a crucial block and ran the floor for a sweet 11 foot baby hook in a harsh environment in East Lansing. This matchup is certainly one to keep your eye on.
