Maryland Terrapins

This is surely a game that the Maryland Terrapins would like to win after getting beat up in their last game. With more to prove, Andrew Cowan is expected to come out strong. He has been the leader of the team with 16.5 points per game to go with 3.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.4 steals every game day. More so is the interior presence of Jalen Smith who is a double-double threat every night with 13.5 points, 10.2 rebounds and swats 2.5 blocks per game. Credit also the Terrapins’ Eric Ayala and Aaron Wiggins who had been great wing players for them. They are averaging a combined 21.7 points, 8.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. Darryl Morsell is also a gem for Maryland coming off the bench with 9.1 points and 5.9 rebounds a night. Maryland is expected to have a tough time with Seton Hall but they are still favored with the consistency that they have been showing.

Seton Hall Pirates

It has been a struggle so far for Seton Hall as they have not lived up to their potential with a 6-4 start of the tournament. They are coming in this match from losing two straight games and all of them had been in wide margins. Myles Powell had been great for them but NBA scouts are looking for him to lead the team and bring them to a winning culture. So far he has been averaging 21.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2 assists and shot 38% from the field. For Seton Hall to be better, they would need Powell to be better starting with his leadership and shot selection. He has good support from Landro Mamukelashvili and Quincy Knight who combined averages 20.5 points per game. Against Maryland, Powell is expected to lead the Pirates but they will go as far as he goes.

Players to watch:

M. Powell G (10 GP 27.5 MIN 21.2 PTS 4.4 REB 2 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 2.5 TO 40.8 FG% 78 FT% 38 3P%), S.

McKnight G (10 GP 25.2 MIN 9.6 PTS 2.5 REB 3.9 AST 1.4 STL 0.2 BLK 1.9 TO 46.3 FG% 82.1 FT% 36.7 3P%).
