After rallying from down 15 against Bucknell on Saturday, Maryland men’s basketball will complete its four-game home stand with a much easier game against Jackson State on Monday.
While the Bison game the Terps a scare, the Tigers should go down without much fight. If Maryland plays with the same intensity it had in the second half against Bucknell, head coach Mark Turgeon should have ample time to play with his lineups.
The Tigers are 1-2 with two blowout losses on their record, and Maryland should give them a third. Anthony Cowan has led the Terps in scoring in each of the first four games, and freshmen Darryl Morsell and Bruno Fernando have both provided a spark for the team. Justin Jackson could be next in line for a breakout game after finally hitting his first three of the season.
Turgeon should have a chance to go deeper in his lineup than in the past two games when the Terps take on the Tigers tonight at 7 p.m. ET on BTN.
