Maryland vs. IL - 1/26/19 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

It was the second straight loss for the Terps, with the other being a 14-point road defeat at No. 6 Michigan State. Tevian Jones added 18 points, and Andres Feliz had 15. He played 23 minutes Saturday and made 6 of 12 shots, including 4 of 9 3-pointers. In the second half, the Terps had just three field goals in the last 12 minutes, and one came when IL had a double-digit lead in the final minute.

Unlike a year ago, when the Fighting Illini overcame a 22-point deficit in Champaign, Ill., only to lose in overtime, IL finished the game on a 26-10 run. Turgeon said his halftime speech focused on transition defense, but his Terps returned to the court and gave IL wide-open looks at confidence-building shots from the perimeter. "That's like easy money shots". Something needed to happen for IL and it did.

Darryl Morsell gave the Terps another ten points while Anthony Cowan and Jalen Smith contributed seven and six points respectively.

Sophomore center Bruno Fernando led the Terps with 19 points and 10 rebounds, but helped open the door for IL (6-14, 2-7) by missing a one-and-one and a layup with Maryland leading 59-58.

"The one thing we wanted to do was mix our defenses up a little bit", Underwood said.

The Terrapins led by 11 during the first half, but IL pulled within 34-30 at the break after Dosunmu scored all the Illini's points on a 9-2 run.

Lippi, widely recognised as being one of the finest coaches of his generation, led Italy to the 2006 FIFA World Cup. "There is no room for mistakes for they will punish you every chance they get", added the World Cup victor .

With Maryland leading by one and 6:14 to go, Fernando missed the front end of a one-and-one. "We just weren't very good when we needed to be good, and they were".

IL was poised for the upset with a two point lead at the intermission but couldn't get enough second half stops Wisconsin holding a 51.1%-35.5% shooting edge. Maryland ran off seven straight points, IL countered with six consecutive to regain the lead, then Maryland used a 10-4 run for a 57-52 advantage.

Cowan, whose highest-scoring games of his sophomore (27 points) and freshman (19) seasons came against IL, finished with 18 points on 4-for-10 shooting with five assists and four rebounds before he fouled out with 23 seconds left. But Illinois simply outplayed Maryland in the second half, shooting 50 percent from the field and making 16 of 17 free throws.

"It's huge", Underwood said when asked about his team's lead management. Guys wanting the ball and then playing with a conscious effort.

Maybe Maryland shouldn't think of Madison Square Garden as a home away from home court after all.
