Maryland has run into a streak of tough losses that have sent it fading in the Big Ten standings.
The Terps have lost four out of five and the last thee are as follows: at Michigan by one, at Indiana by three and at home versus Michigan State by six. They are now 4–6 and in the bottom half of the conference standings.
KenPom has Maryland 42nd in the nation, with a balanced offense (46th) and defense (54th).
The Terps shoot over 39 percent from three, thanks to their two highest scorers, Anthony Cowan and Kevin Huerter who shoot 39 and 46 percent, respectively.
Mark Turgeon has sent his squad to the NCAA Tournament three years running but Maryland has gone backwards with a Sweet Sixteen berth three years ago, a second round appearance two years ago and a first round defeat last season.
Consider the Terps squarely on the bubble this season.
Purdue won’t have to sweat out bubble status on Selection Sunday but it might not be a guarantee that the Boilermakers are a one-seed.
Purdue is on that line as of now but it still has a game versus Ohio State and a trip to the Breslin Center to play the Spartans next month.
The Boilermakers lost their best player from last season’s team that played Kansas tough in the Sweet Sixteen before eventually faltering down the stretch.
Everybody else is back, though, and most of them are improved.
Carsen Edwards, for one, has taken a big step forward in his sophomore season. He leads the team with over 16 points per game, up from just about ten last season.
He’s one of six Boilermakers shooting over 40 percent from three (the team makes 43.6 percent).
Freshman center Matt Haarms stands 7’3″ and has been tremendously productive on both ends of the floor in just over 18 minutes per game.
He and Isaac Haas make a fearsome combination on the interior.

Free Maryland Terrapins vs. Purdue Boilermakers NCAAB Prediction: Maryland gives Purdue a run and covers in a loss.
Purdue won’t run the table in the Big Ten. Opponents are coming at it hard and it’s just a matter of time before it slips up. I don’t think that’ll be Wednesday. Though the Terps could keep it close enough.
