No. 2 seed Maryland women’s basketball will look to keep its momentum going as it takes on No. 6 seed Texas in the Sweet 16.

The Terps have the No. 1 scoring offense in the country averaging 91.8 points per game. Over its first two NCAA Tournament games, the Terps have averaged 99 points after defeating No. 15 seed Mount St. Mary’s 98-45 and then securing the victory against No. 7 seed Alabama, 100-64.

Six different players on the Maryland roster average 10 or more points per game and the Terps have the best assist to turnover ratio in the country (1.70).

Texas averages 21.2 points off turnovers and pulls in an average of 37.7 rebounds per game.

Maryland leads the series 4-1 and the last time these two teams met was in the second round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament. The Terps won that matchup 69-64 and advanced to the Final Four that season.

Tip off between the Terps and Longhorns is set for at 9 p.m. and will air on ESPN.
