It’s the final night of early Big Ten basketball. Five teams are already 2-0 in conference play, and Maryland has a chance to join that pack as the No. 23 Terps visit Purdue.
It’s the team’s first game outside the state of Maryland this year, and it’ll be a tough one. Before the Boilermakers lost two straight games to Florida State and Michigan last week, they were ranked in the top 15 (and they’re still 14th in KenPom). Point guard Carsen Edwards is a potential All-American, and Purdue has shooters around him. But Maryland has talent in its own right, and when the Terps play well, they’ve shown they can hang with anyone.
This is your space for observations, commentary and more during the game. Be respectful, and go Terps.
