GameThread: Maryland basketball vs. Oklahoma State

Terps and Cowboys tip at 9 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland basketball takes on the last of its difficult four-game stretch of opponents against Oklahoma State on Saturday night. The Terps faired 2-1 with wins over Richmond and Kansas State at the Barclays Center Classic in Brooklyn, but dropped their first game of the season on Tuesday to Pittsburgh.

They'll be playing without Ivan Bender, who will miss the game with a bone bruise in his left knee.

To stay competitive against KenPom's No. 47 team, Maryland will have to shoot much better than it did in November. Through seven games, the Terps shot a Big Ten-worst 41.3 percent from the field and second-worst 30.5 percent from three.
