And so they've come to the end.
The Maryland men's basketball team plays Indiana on Sunday at Assembly Hall in Bloomington in a Big Ten regular season finale. The Hoosiers are slim favorites in what should be a high-scoring and altogether enjoyable game. Tipoff is at 4:30 p.m. EST on CBS, and here's a complete rundown on how to watch and listen.
It's an important game for Maryland, even though the Terrapins only have at stake Sunday whether they'll be the No. 3 or No. 4 seed in the Big Ten Tournament. And even that depends entirely on the result of the Purdue-Wisconsin game later at night, with a Purdue win leaving Maryland at No. 3 and Wisconsin win leaving Maryland at No. 4.
A win would probably be the best resume boost they've gotten all year, and it could go a long way toward the Terps getting a No. 2 or No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament, instead of a No. 3 or No. 4.
The Terps start play in the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis on Friday, so they'll get well-acquainted with the Hoosier State in the coming days. A win in Bloomington wouldn't be a bad place to start.
