Maryland Excellent Following A Loss

The Maryland Terrapins are coming off their worst offensive performance of the season when they scored 65 points and went 22-of-57 from the floor in a loss to Michigan State. However, Maryland has shown they can bounce back as they have won their last 11 games following a SU loss. It will be a battle for Big Ten supremacy when the Terrapins host the Iowa Hawkeyes Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • Iowa is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a win.
  • Maryland is 4-1 ATS in their past five games following two ATS losses.
  • Melo Trimble led all scorers when these teams met last season with 20 points.

Iowa is arguably the best team in the nation right now as they are on a nine-game winning streak, which includes five victories over ranked opponents.  The Hawkeyes are 7-0 in Big Ten play this season with an average scoring margin of 12.2 points. Jarrod Uthoff’s play recently has him in the conversation for the Wooden Award as the senior has averaged 21.7 points while shooting 53.3 percent from beyond the arc in the past six games.

Maryland has been near unstoppable at home as they have won 11 consecutive games at Center College Park with an average scoring margin of +18.7 points. The Terrapins are one of the deadliest shooting teams in the nation as their 50.3 percent from the field is the fifth-best in the nation behind Diamond Stone who has hit nearly 60 percent this year.
