This should be an extremely easy matchup for the Terps.

Maryland men's basketball welcomes Bowie State to Xfinity Center this Tuesday in an odd late-season matchup. The game tips off at 6 p.m. on BTN, and you can stream it at BTN2go.

This isn't an extremely tough matchup for the Bulldogs - it's pretty much an impossible one. If Bowie State pulls off an upset, it'll be the highlight of the program's history and a very dark time in what's been Maryland's most exciting season in recent memory.

The Terps got some much-needed rest after topping Purdue on Saturday, and come into this game having reassumed their No. 2 ranking from earlier in the season. If Villanova slips up this week (unlikely), Maryland could claim the No. 1 spot in the AP poll for the first time in program history.

Expect to see a healthy dose of Jaylen Brantley and Varun Ram in this one. While Mark Turgeon will try to make the most of Melo Trimble and Rasheed Sulaimon's minutes Tuesday night, the Terps ideally won't require the services of their top guards against this Division-II foe.
