Ohio State @ Maryland

Current Records: Ohio State 11-3; Maryland 12-2

What to Know

The #11 Ohio State Buckeyes are 1-6 against the #12 Maryland Terrapins since January of 2016, but they'll have a chance to close the gap on Tuesday. They will face off against one another at 7 p.m. ET at Xfinity Center. OSU's scoring has been on the decline the past three games, which is obviously a trend Maryland hopes will continue.

The point spread favored the Buckeyes last week, but luck did not. It was close but no cigar for OSU as they fell 61-57 to the Wisconsin Badgers. Ohio State's loss came about despite a quality game from F Kaleb Wesson, who dropped a double-double on 22 points and 13 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Maryland greeted the new year with a 75-59 win over the Indiana Hoosiers. Maryland got double-digit scores from four players: F Jalen Smith (19), G Anthony Cowan Jr. (13), G Aaron Wiggins (13), and G Darryl Morsell (12).

Maryland's victory lifted them to 12-2 while Ohio State's defeat dropped them down to 11-3. We'll see if Maryland can repeat their recent success or if OSU bounces back and reverse their fortune.
