After two wins and a jump in the national polls, the Maryland Terrapins will play host to the Nebraska Cornhuskers Thursday night as they look to improve to 22-5 on the season and get to ten wins in Big Ten play.
Coming into the match up, the Cornhuskers sit at 13-12 on the season and 5-8 in conference play. The one strength for Nebraska is their ability to defend, allowing just 61.3 points per game, ranking 53rd in the country in the category. The Cornhuskers are led by Terran Petteway who averages 18.7 points per game. Dez Wells will likely be tasked with guarding the Cornhuskers star player, making for an interesting contest between the two stars.
Let's get the ball rolling: does Maryland make it three wins in a row? Who leds the way for the Terps? Does Maryland stop Petteway from getting to his season averages?
