When will Maryland basketball's turnovers come back to bite?

In the latest episode of the Testudo Times Podcast, we discuss Maryland's turnover problem, the Terps' recent three game win streak and the lack of guard depth.

Dave Tucker and Ryan Connors join the show to talk about Maryland's last three basketball games, which were all wins for the Terps.

We began by discussing Maryland's turnover problem, which once again was an issue in the win over Nebraska. The Terps have just over five weeks to correct those issues, but have also shown that they can overcome turnovers by being extremely efficient in other facets of the game.

We also focus on how good Maryland's defense has been during its three game win streak, led by senior forward Jake Layman, who arguably had one of his best games of the season. Layman shut down Jarrod Uthoff, limiting the Iowa star to just 9 points in the Terps' win over the Hawkeyes, the only time he's failed to score in double digits this season.

We also get into Maryland's lack of guard depth and how that impacts its offense, especially when Sulaimon or Trimble have to sit long periods due to foul trouble.

We also preview Maryland's upcoming game with Purdue and discuss the Terps' remaining schedule and how it could impact its NCAA Tournament seeding.
