Top-five Maryland takes on the top-ranked and three-time defending national champion UConn Huskies in Madison Square Garden.

You can find a full preview of tonight's game here.

UConn and Maryland collide in women's basketball for the fifth time in the last four years. UConn has won all four of the previous matchups by 15 points or more. Both teams are undefeated but UConn has played the far tougher schedule, beating several ranked teams. Maryland lags in RPI and is a heavy under-dog despite making the past two Final Fours.

Maryland leads the country in scoring and rebounding margin and is second in scoring margin. UConn has three of the best players in the country in Breanna Stewart, Morgan Tuck and Moriah Jefferson. Stewart's ability to go inside and out gives teams headaches.

Will Maryland finally be able to knock off UConn? The Terps lost by 17 and 15 points in their regular season matchups with the Huskies. This is a de facto road game for Maryland. Can they summon some magic in Madison Square Garden?
