Seeking their first top-50 RPI win of the season and revenge after a home loss in December, the Terps travel to Chestnut Hill to take on Boston College at 1:00.
Maryland (16-8, 5-4 ACC) sorely needs a victory against the Eagles (15-9, 5-5 ACC), who have dropped four of their last five games in conference play. The Terps are winners of five of their last six, but only one (a 79-77 win over Clemson) has come against a team in the top 100 of the RPI — not exactly a major boost to the team’s NCAA tournament hopes.
Boston College bested the Terps in College Park on December 12, scoring the game’s final seven points over the closing 2:40 of the second half to give the Eagles a 79-75 victory. The home loss snapped Maryland’s 15-game winning streak at the Comcast Center.
The road team has won the last six regular season games in the all-time series.
This afternoon’s game can be seen on the ACC Network (WNUV-TV 54 in Baltimore) at 1:00 p.m. with Tom Werme and Cory Alexander calling the action from Conte Forum.
