The Maryland Terrapins host the Rider Broncs Friday evening at 7 p.m. at Xfinity Center. The Terps are coming off their second win of the season, an emotional, 75-71 thriller over Georgetown.
Rider is winless so far this season, dropping games to Princeton (64-56) and La Salle (73-60). The Broncs were picked to finish 11th in the MAAC this season. They're led by Xavier Lundy, who is averaging 14 ppg, 3.5 rpg, and 1 apg.
Kenpom currently ranks Rider 176th and predicts a 14 point victory for Maryland, with a 92% chance of winning the game.
Friday's game will be the Terrapins' third home game of the season before they travel to Mexico to participate in the Cancun Challenge on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. The Terps return home for a game against Cleveland State next Saturday, November 28th, before playing in their first true road game of the season, a top five match-up against North Carolina at the Dean Dome in the B1G-ACC Challenge.
If you're planning on attending Friday's game, don't forget about new security measures implemented by Maryland last week.
