Indiana vs Maryland
Maryland and Indiana come into this game with identical records across the board. Maryland comes in this game as the 5th ranked team in the country, according to my computer power rankings. Indiana comes into this game a little lower as the 50th ranked team. One of the strongest parts of Maryland’s game this year has been there free throw shooting. So far this season they are shooting 73.3% from the line, while Indiana is only shooting at 67.7%.
