    Nebraska resumes Big Ten Conference action as the Huskers travel to College Park, Md., for a matchup with the Maryland Terrapins.

    The Huskers start 2019 with an 11-2 record following a 79-38 win over Southwest Minnesota State on Dec 29. In that game, James Palmer Jr. and Glynn Watson Jr. had 16 points apiece, as Nebraska held SMSU to 30 percent shooting and never trailed. Nebraska used its bench extensively, as all 10 players who dressed broke into the scoring column.

    Nebraska returned to the AP poll on Monday morning, as the Huskers were ranked 24th after a one-week absence. NU is now tied with Wisconsin at No. 23 in the USA Today Coaches poll, as NU has been ranked in the coaches poll for five straight weeks.

    The Huskers have been powered by the senior trio of James Palmer Jr., Isaac Copeland Jr. and Glynn Watson Jr., as they combine for nearly 48 points per game. Palmer is second in the Big Ten in scoring at 19.2 points per game, while both Copeland (14.5 ppg) and Watson (13.6 ppg) are on pace for career highs. Nebraska is averaging 80.2 points per game in its first 13 games and has scored at least 75 points in each of its last six contests.

    SCOUTING MARYLAND
    Coach Mark Turgeon's team is a young, but talented squad that starts four freshmen or sophomores around third-year starter Anthony Cowan Jr. The Terps opened the year with six straight wins before falling to Virginia by five points at the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Maryland split its first two Big Ten games, knocking off Penn State at home before losing by two at Purdue, while the only other loss came in a four-point setback to Seton Hall. Maryland comes into Wednesday's game with a 10-3 record following a 78-64 win over Radford.

    Maryland's strength is the inside game with sophomore Bruno Fernando and freshman Jalen Smith, as the Terps out-rebound opponents by nearly 12 rebounds per game. Fernando averages 14.5 points and 9.6 rebounds per game and leads the Big Ten in field goal percentage (.702) and blocked shots (2.5 bpg). Smith has been one of the Big Ten's top freshmen, averaging 11.9 points and 7.2 rebounds ppg. Cowan leads Maryland in scoring (16.5 ppg) and assists (4.5 apg) but has been playing off the ball with the development of freshman guard Eric Ayala (9.2 ppg, 3.3 apg).

    We really need Roby to 1) play, and 2) keep out of foul trouble. We are going to lose bad on the boards. Bruno will probably go for 20 and 12 on us but it would be nice if we didn’t have to double him. We have frozen Maryland with our 1-3-1 before, can we rebound well enough to run it for 15 minutes?

    An upset tomorrow would be huge. Metrics actually indicate we should be slight favorites; but, I'm sure that most media experts are thinking Maryland wins this one fairly easily?

    I Agree, a win over the Terps would be huge; but I don't think anyone, especially Maryland, is thinking this is going to be a run-away or an easy win for them.

    This is somewhat dated information since I'm not a KenPom subscriber, but KenPom has this pretty much a toss-up, predicting MD wins 71-70, but with only 52% (48% that we win) certainty.

    I'm sure Maryland is favored since it is their Home Game, but this is probably one of the best opportunities we will have (along with Iowa) to 'steal' a win on the road. And the students will not be back on campus yet from Christmas Break for either the Maryland or Iowa games.

    I like our chances for the win here! One big uncertainty is whether Roby will play, or be 100% if he does suit-up.

    My son really would have liked that. I explained to him why he didn't play...he understood, but really wanted to see him play while we sat at courtside.
