The Terps are looking for their 10th consecutive win.

Maryland men's basketball is looking for its 10th win in a row Tuesday night against Michigan. The Terps (15-1, 4-0 Big Ten) are off to the best start in program history, and are looking to remain undefeated in conference play.

Michigan is coming off an 87-70 loss to Purdue last Thursday. The Wolverines enters the game ranked No. 31 in KenPom, which predicts Michigan to win, 71-70. Maryland hasn't played a team ranked that high since losing to then-No. 7 North Carolina on Dec. 1.

Michigan (12-4, 2-1 Big Ten) might be without Caris LeVert, who leads the team in scoring, assists and rebounds. Even without LeVert, the Wolverines will rely heavily on their three-point shooting. They have the ninth-best shooting percentage in the country from beyond the arc, while Maryland is No. 36 in that same category.

We don't have anyone on the ground in Ann Arbor, but follow along @testudotimes, @ryanconnors11 and @mellentuck for updates throughout the game.
