Maryland will open up NCAA Tournament this weekend against UConn. It figures to be a challenging matchup. The Huskies are 16th nationally on KenPom and enter the Tournament as a seven seed. Should the Terps make it past UConn, the team would be looking at another challenging game against either Alabama or Iona. Other notable teams in the region include Michigan, Florida State, Texas, and BYU.
It’s hard to complain much about this landing spot for the Terps. While UConn is probably tougher than your average seven seed, Maryland could have easily ended up in the “First Four,” so avoiding that possibility is certainly a bonus.
BTPowerhouse will have plenty to follow on this and all of the Big Ten teams in the NCAA Tournament in the days ahead.
