Maryland basketball looks to build off a home win against Wisconsin on Sunday on the road against Penn State on Wednesday night.
The Terps have struggled in the Big Ten this season, but they picked up a big win against the Badgers at the Xfinity Center. Up next is the Nittany Lions, who have already eclipsed their win total from last season and have equaled their conference win total from last year. They have a 12-3 home record overall, so Maryland will have its hands full.
As of now, there is no word on whether starting center Michal Cekovsky will play, although it seems unlikely. He is vital to Maryland’s rebounding game, and the Terps will have to play a smaller roster against Penn State and hope that Bruno Fernando, Sean Obi, and Joshua Tomaic will be able to fill the void.
Maryland: 16-9 (5-7 Big Ten)
Penn State: 16-9 (6-6 Big Ten)
All-time series: Maryland leads 13-8
Odds: Maryland is a 4.5-point underdog
