Maryland is one of the top teams in the country. This is another chance to show why. It is always fun at MSG.
The Huskies are no stranger to the venue and also have a very good team.
The only blemish for Maryland this season is a loss at North Carolina. No shame there but they haven’t been beating down opponents as expected with that 3-5 ATS mark. Their best win, a quality Georetown team.
In terms of individual performances things have played out as expected with Melo Trimble leading the way in a variety of categories.
It could be that he is not playing heavy minutes but I was expecting more from Jake Layman. He is 4th on the team in scoring and has almost twice as many fouls as assists.
Robert Carter, the transfer, has been as good as advertised efficiently shoring 13ppg while leading the team in boards.
Frosh Diamond Stone gets a nice test against the Huskies intimidating center Amidah Brimah
I like this UConn team and I think by the end of the year they will be the best team in the AAC and a tough out in the Tournament.
They may have a couple of losses but they are to quality teams, Gonzaga and Syracuse, and both by just three points.
They are not going to be intimidated by Maryland as they too have a nice collection of perimeter talent but perhaps not as much inside.
However, Brimah is a factor in terms of protecting the rim averaging 3 blocks per game.
Daniel Hamilton is one of the more underrated players in the country. He is averaging nearly a double-double at 12/9 even though he is just 190 pounds. His length helps him on the boards and he is willing to stick his nose in there.
This is a neutral site game but the Huskies could have an advantage at MSG. It is one of those where you wonder who is going to step up on the big stage.
There are lots of candidates from both sides.
UConn has been playing strong defense all season and if they do tonight they can certainly get the big win that has eluded them so far.
They have been close and now just need to seal the deal.

Free CBB Prediction:
Really small spread so really you are picking the winner here. Maryland seems like the smart play but I just like UConn and think they are due.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UConn ATS
This will come down to which team has the star that shines brightest. Look for Sterling Gibbs to get off from deep.
