Sports Illustrated projects Maryland basketball No. 5 team in country, No. 2 seed in NCAA Tournament


SI likes Maryland a good bit, projecting the Terps to score about 1.16 points per possession and only surrender 0.93. Those are both among the top-10 marks in the country, but Maryland comes in No. 5 nationally in the magazine's overall statistical model. North Carolina, Kansas, Kentucky and Duke are projected ahead of the Terrapins.
