Maryland men’s basketball is set to take on Illinois in its second consecutive road matchup of the week.

The Terps are coming off a close loss to Iowa in which Maryland started off slow, had the lead at halftime but ultimately struggled to contain the Hawkeyes’ Keegan Murray who put up a career-high 35 points. The Terps lost that matchup, 80-75 and have a tall task ahead as they take on Kofi Cockburn and the Fighting Illini Thursday night in search of their first conference win of the season.

Illinois is coming off a 76-53 win over Minnesota and has yet to drop a conference matchup. The Fighting Illini’s only losses came against Marquette, Cincinnati and then-No. 11 Arizona.

As always, this is your space for thoughts, observations or whatever you would like to share, but be respectful.
