Maryland men’s basketball has yet to knock off three AP Top-25 teams on the road in one season in program season. Tonight, it has a chance to do that as it plays No. 7 Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The Terps and Wolverines faced off in College Park on New Year’s Eve, where Hunter Dickinson’s 26 points powered the maize and blue to an 11-point victory. Three Terrapins scored in double-figures, including Eric Ayala, who is expected to see some time on the court tonight as he deals with a groin injury. Donta Scott set an Xfinity Center record by nailing 5-of-5 shots from 3-point range while posting 19 points.
Despite Maryland’s 2-5 record during conference play, it has either led or been tied in the second half of six of its seven Big Ten games.
Michigan began this season with 11 straight wins before falling to No. 23 Minnesota, 75-57, on Saturday.
Terrance Williams II and Dickinson both hail from the Washington, D.C., area, with Williams graduating from Gonzaga College High School and Dickinson coming out of DeMatha Catholic. Wolverines head coach Juwan Howard refers to this duo as the “DMV boys.”
Tonight’s game tips off at 7 p.m. and will be televised on Fox Sports 1.
