Nebraska might be catching Maryland at a good time when they tipoff at 8 p.m. tonight at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Then again, they might not be. Coming into tonight’s contest against Fred Hoiberg’s squad, the Terrapins have lost five straight Big Ten battles. Will the Huskers add to Danny Manning’s struggles? Or is Maryland hungry enough to claim its first win since upending Rutgers 68-60 on the road Jan. 25?
Regardless of how you look at it, both Nebraska and Maryland are in desperate need of a win. The Cornhuskers, of course, are at the bottom of the Big Ten standings at 1-13. Maryland, meanwhile, sits two games ahead of Nebraska in the No. 12 spot in conference play. Only Minnesota sits between the Huskers and the Terrapins in league play.
