No. 4 Maryland men’s basketball once again fell victim to the Bryce Jordan Center curse Tuesday night, suffering a 76-69 loss to Penn State.
The Terps have now lost four consecutive games in State College, Pennsylvania, with their last win there dating back to 2015.

|Feb. 7, 2018||L, 74-70|

This time around, the Terps were looking to jump out to an 11-0 start on the season, however they dug themselves in a hole by committing 20 turnovers to suffer the first loss of 2019-20.
Maryland will now have a decent break from gameplay to regroup before facing No. 22 Seton Hall in Newark, New Jersey, on Dec. 19.

With the Terps’ loss and two other teams — No. 1 Louisville and No. 18 Butler — getting knocked off Tuesday night, there are very few undefeated programs left in men’s college basketball.
