The Basics

Who: #3/3 Maryland Terrapins (15-1, 4-0 B1G)

When: Tuesday, January 12th, at 9:00 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Where: Crisler Center -- Ann Arbor, Mich.

Spread: Vegas: +1.5 | KenPom: W, 71-70 (52% WP)


Michigan is in need of a marquee victory, and tonight will be one of its best chances to earn one this season. Maryland arrives in Ann Arbor as the #3 team in the human polls but is ranked only in the mid-teens by KenPom and Sagarin. As a result, the sportsbooks and KenPom essentially view this as a coin flip, though the edge should go to the Terps with the news Caris LeVert (lower left leg) is doubtful to play. These are the games Michigan must win if it wants to avoid being on the wrong side of the bubble in March.
