Maryland Terrapins prospects
Maryland went just 16-13, but they played one of the toughest schedules in the country. They’ve played very good defense overall this season, and the length they have makes them very versatile and matchup-friendly. Turgeon runs a pretty tight rotation of only seven guys, and all seven of them are at least 6’5. They do have plenty of head-scratching losses this season, including one to Northwestern with only a week left in the regular season, and it’s hard to know which version of them will show up. A tough first-round matchup with UConn awaits, but if they get past the Huskies I could see them making Alabama sweat in the Round of 32.Last updated: Fri 19th March 2021
