Following a last-second nail biter in its Big Ten opener on Saturday against Illinois, No. 4 Maryland men’s basketball will look to improve to 11-0 on the road against the Penn State Nittany Lions Tuesday.
Senior leader Anthony Cowan Jr. proved why he is considered one of the top players in the nation, capping off a tremendous come from behind victory for Maryland with a 30-foot three-pointer to tie the game, followed by a go-ahead free throw with two seconds remaining.
The Terps were down by 14 at half but stormed back behind the strong showing from Cowan and another double-double for Jalen Smith.
The Nittany Lions are much improved from last season when they walloped then-No. 17 Maryland by 17 points at Bryce Jordan Center, and they’ll be a tough test.
The game will be televised on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. EST.
Maryland: 10-0 (1-0 Big Ten)
Penn State: 7-2 (0-1 Big Ten)
All-time series: Maryland leads 14-10
