Maryland basketball drew Virginia in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge months ago, and the matchup is finally here. Both teams are undefeated, and the Terps are No. 24 in the AP Poll while the Cavaliers are No. 4.
It’s a storied rivalry, with Maryland leading 107-75 in the all-time series. But the teams have only met once since the Terps left the ACC, coming in this same challenge four years ago. Virginia won that game by 11. This time, Maryland is coming off a 37-point thrashing of Marshall, while Virginia won the Battle 4 Atlantis last week.
As always, this is your space for observations, commentary and more during the game. Be respectful, and go Terps.
