Happy new year, Testudo Times!
Maryland basketball starts 2017 with a home game against Nebraska. The Terps will look to win their second straight conference matchup and improve to 14-1 overall. Nebraska is a confusing 7-6; the Huskers are coming off a win at Indiana, but have also lost to Gardner-Webb this season.
The game tips off at noon, and it remains to be seen how many fans will be awake, let alone in attendance.
Maryland: 13-1, 1-0 Big Ten
Nebraska: 7-6, 1-0 Big Ten
All-time series: Maryland leads, 4-0
Odds: Maryland is favored by 7 points.
