The Terps (4-1 in Big Ten play) haven’t played since beating Illinois on Saturday. The Hawkeyes (3-3 Big Ten) last played on Sunday, a 35-point loss to Northwestern. Should be fun.
Last time they played: Maryland beat Iowa, 74-68, last January.
Odds: Maryland is favored by 1.5 points

NBC’s Rob Dauster talked Maryland and Melo Trimble on the Locked on Wizards podcast:
I’m bullish on Maryland, think Melo Trimble is a fantastic college basketball player, but I think he’s going to be a guy, you’re not going to pick him in the first round, maybe a second-round pick. I think he will be on a [NBA] roster. Like Fred Van Vleet is still in the NBA. I think he’s going to be a guy like that, he’s going to bounce around for a while, play in the NBA, be an NBA player, but he’s not a guy that’s going to start, he’s not a guy that’s going to get a ton of minutes. Great college player, he’ll get a cup of coffee in the NBA.
