Terps Edged at Nebraska
Nebraska needs to dial up the offensive pace and defensive intensity on Maryland's guards and wear them down from the jump.
Maryland's four-point loss was all too familiar. The Terrapins rank dead last in the Big Ten in turnover margin (-3.0), averaging 14.1 turnovers a game.
Maryland is sitting at 17-10 on the season so far. The Terps were behind by as many as seven points in the second half, but a basket by freshman forward Bruno Fernando cut Nebraska's lead to 64-63 with 1:40 remaining.
With just over one minute left, Maryland - down by one- had the ball and a chance to take the lead.
Terps Edged at Nebraska
"Another tough loss for us on the road", Terps coach Mark Turgeon said. But the big man was denied the ball on a post entry and on a screen-and-roll, and the possession broke down.
"When you get in a rhythm, everybody knows it and they throw you the rock and you don't think you can miss", Palmer said after scoring 24 of his 26 points in the second half of Nebraska's 70-66 win over Maryland on Tuesday night. At the final media timeout, the Huskers led by three points with under three minutes left to play. In 30 minutes, Fernando added 21 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks with 3 turnovers.
How can I listen to the Nebraska-Maryland basketball game on the radio?
Maryland leads the all-time series 4-1, with four of the meetings having been decided by 5 points or less. In that victory, Maryland guard Kevin Huerter led the way on 22 points.
The Terps have overcome their shortcomings at home. Fernando's NBA Draft stock will determine if that becomes a reality. He scored his 1,000th career point on the first free throw and swished the second one to put the Huskers up two. We're approaching every game basically like it's a tournament game, like it's a must win. Do something to get in the stat sheet, alright?' So he was more aggressive today. He though both teams were edgy as he noted Maryland was also fighting for position and trying to start a much-needed win streak as well.
Maybe the most important matchup tonight will be Nebraska's perimeter defense against Maryland's 3-point shooting.
Palmer and Roby combined for 35 of the Cornhuskers' 40 second-half points, as they secured their first 20-win season since 2008, and won a sixth straight conference game for the first time in 20 years.
"We just don't have the depth this year this year on the road", Turgeon said.
What direct rule in Northern Ireland means for the UK
The Irish and British governments say they're continuing to discuss a way forward, after the collapse of the talks. Two days ago the British and Irish prime ministers raised the prospect of the stalemate ending soon.
"I think that gravity certainly sunk in, the gravity of that moment", Miles remembered, "I told the guys after the game, 'This is a special circumstance, but enjoy it. If you think, 'Oh, I think we can win 21 or 20 this year, ' you need to get your mind free of that and keep playing and keep winning". I'm not making excuses.
Huerter got hit with his third foul when Roby went to the hoop early in the second half, but replays showed little-or-no contact by Huerter as Roby rose to the rim.
