After winning the Cancun Challenge, the Maryland men's basketball team will look to go 6-0 on Saturday against Cleveland State.
After winning in unconvincing fashion over Georgetown, Rider and Illinois State, the Terps took it to Rhode Island all game on Wednesday, and come into Saturday's matchup at Xfinity Center looking more like the team people expected them to be entering the season. Melo Trimble and Rasheed Suliamon both showed up in a big way against Rhode Island, scoring 17 points each and missing one shot between the two of them, and Robert Carter added 15 points and 9 rebounds.
The Vikings enter the game coming off a loss to 77-66 to North Dakota State on Wednesday. The Vikings have two opponents in common with the Terps, having beat Rider on Tuesday and lost to Rhode Island handily on Saturday.
No. 2 Maryland (5-0)
Cleveland State (2-3)
All-time series: Maryland leads, 1-0
KenPom projection: Maryland 75, Cleveland State 58. Terps have 95 percent chance of winning.
