#7 Ohio State will look to remain one of the hottest teams in college basketball when they travel to face Maryland at 9 p.m. ET on Monday in a conference showdown at Xfinity Arena in College Park.
Maryland had a season-low for points and assists (6) while its 16 turnovers were a season-high in an ugly 55-50 loss to Penn State. Maryland did not score a field goal in the final seven minutes and looked out of sync.
The loss was not on Eric Ayala, as he scored barely less than half of the team’s points with 23. He leads the team with 14.4 points a game and has been the team’s leading scorer the most times this year.
Junior guard Aaron Wiggins was held to a season-low 2 points as he was 1-for-11 on field goal attempts. He averages 12.5 PPG and will need to get on track following the disappointing performance he had against the Nittany Lions.
Sophomore forward Donta Scott has been one of the more balanced players on the team and will prove to be a good matchup for E.J. Liddell and the Buckeyes. Scott averages of 12.5 points and 6.5 rebounds a game. He is also shooting 52.6% on field goals and 45.2% beyond the arc.
Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State is coming off an 89-85 upset win at #8 Iowa in what was arguably the best win they’ve had all season. Junior guard Duane Washington Jr., sophomore forward E.J. Liddell and senior forward Kyle Young scored 16 points each to lead a Buckeye offense that ranks in the top five in total efficiency.
Junior forward Justin Sueing added a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
Liddell has done so many things well for the Buckeyes this season. His averaging 19.2 points in his last six games, raising his season average to 15.4. He is also averaging 6.9 rebounds and drawing 6.3 fouls per 40 minutes. On top of all of this, he is the Buckeyes best defensive player.
Washington is pouring in 14.6 PPG while Justin Ahrens is shooting over 45 percent from deep this season. Washington broke out of an offensive slump in his last game after scoring under 10 points in his previous three contests.

Free Maryland Terrapins vs. Ohio State Buckeyes NCAAB Prediction:
I have to ride the hot hand here and take the Buckeyes. Road favorites can be a dangerous play, but the Buckeyes have been dominating away from home against better teams then Maryland. I also like the under given how poorly the Terps have looked offensively of late.
