INDIANAPOLIS – The Maryland men's basketball team is on to a Big Ten semifinal against Michigan State, after the Terrapins blew out, then didn't but still defeated Nebraska reasonably handily on Friday night.

The Terps devastated Nebraska by shooting 9-of-11 on three-pointers in the first half, building a 17-point lead by halftime that proved insurmountable for the Huskers. Maryland let the deficit shrink rapidly in the final few minutes, but it kept things well enough in hand as the game drew to a close.

We took in the game from Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis and talked with Maryland's players and coaches about it afterward. Via Facebook Live, here are seven minutes of Terrapin-related postgame discussion.

The basics: Maryland was really good on offense, enough to make this game a definite net positive despite ceding 87 points to a tired team playing its third game in three days. The Big Ten Tournament is a nice event, and we're enjoying covering it despite going through some wireless internet tribulations earlier in the evening.
