The No. 2 Maryland men's basketball team faces off with a deep, defensively stout Rhode Island team in the Cancun Challenge Thursday night. It's a tough matchup for Maryland, which hasn't put together dominant performances so far this season and now draws one of the trickiest, most balanced foes it will see all season.

The game tips from the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Riviera Maya, Mexico, at 8:30 p.m. EST. You can watch it on the CBS Sports Network, and you can talk about it here all night long.

On Tuesday night, both Maryland and Rhode Island won games to create their Wednesday matchup. The Terps struggled with Illinois State but ultimately won behind Rasheed Sulaimon's 18 points, while the Rams earned a 66-60 nod over TCU in the same tiny gym. Ken Pomeroy gives Maryland a 57 percent chance at victory.

Thanks for stopping in, and remember to check back for updates throughout the game.

Enjoy it, and have a happy Thanksgiving.
