The round of 64 of the NCAA Tournament starts on Thursday. One of the evening match ups in the West region is a 6/11 match up between the Maryland Terrapins and the Xavier Musketeers.
Both of these teams had late season slides that really hurt their seeding in this tournament. This is the first match up between the two teams since 2003.
The Xavier Musketeers were having a great season and looked like they could compete for the Big East title until their starting point guard, Edmond Sumner tore his ACL.
The Musketeers have had a hard time making up for that loss and at one point people wondered if this team would miss out on the tournament all together.
For the Musketeers to win it’s going to come down to the offensive end of the floor.
Without Sumner they have had problems scoring at times and the Terrapins can really score. They need to score in the 70’s to win this game.
The Maryland Terrapins, like the Musketeers have had a rough end of the season.
They have gone 2-4 in their last six games. In their last game they lost to Northwestern 72-64. That was an odd game for Maryland because usually they don’t have issues scoring.
To win this game they can’t let that low scoring game happen again.
If they can’t get a flow on the offensive side of the ball they be upset in this game by Xavier.

Free Xavier Musketeers vs. Maryland Terrapins NCAAB Prediction:
Maryland’s loss against the Wildcats really concerns me. For them to only score 62 points is a very big concern and I think it took a lot of confidence out of the Terrapins.
For that reason I think Xavier scores the upset in this game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Xavier ATS
I think it will be a close battle that will be decided in the final minutes.
