The Maryland Terrapins and the Minnesota Golden Gophers will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Williams Arena.

ABOUT MARYLAND (18-2, 6-1 Big Ten): The road seems to be the Terrapins’ friend, as Mark Turgeon’s club has yet to taste defeat away from home in Big Ten play. Of course, one of the team’s most bitter road defeats last season came at Minnesota, with the Gophers earning one of their only two conference wins at the expense of the Terrapins. But the 2016-17 team has found a way to win, going 4-0 on its conference rivals’ home courts to help put it in the pole position in the league as January nears its end.

ABOUT MINNESOTA (15-6, 3-5): When they were winning, the Gophers were playing shutdown defense, forcing turnovers and converting easy baskets in transition. But the defense has waned of late, which has made it harder for Minnesota to score and win, as shown by the four-game slide it carries into Saturday’s contest. Pitino’s squad is giving up 70.5 points in Big Ten play, up from 64.7 in non-conference action – a stat that must change quickly or the team’s drop in the league standings will continue.

Oddsmakers currently have the Golden Gophers listed as 4½-point favorites versus the Terrapins, while the game’s total is sitting at 137.

Minnesota was a 78-72 loser in their most recent outing on the road against Buckeyes. They failed to cover the +3.5-point spread as underdogs.

Maryland won its last outing, a 67-55 result against Scarlet Knights on January 24. They covered in that game as a -11.5-point favorite.
