Penn State vs. Maryland - 2/27/19 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

An exterior view of the Bryce Jordan Center prior to the game between the Maryland Terrapins and the Penn State Nittany Lions. "It's just another level of toughness and focus that you have to dial in to win in this league". Lamar Stevens led PSU with 25 points on 8-of-12 shooting including 1-of-2 from 3-point distance plus 8-of-10 at the free throw line.

The 20-point first half matched a season-low for the Terps - they trailed 32-20 at Michigan State on January 20 before falling behind by 22 in the second half of a 69-55 loss - and was just two points more than Maryland had in the first of a 65-52 loss at Michigan on February 15. Merchant said. "Just something we can work on and tighten up on, I mean that's what you want to do this time of year".

The model knows Maryland's Bruno Fernando and Jalen Smith (both 6-foot-10) are forces on the interior, with Fernando averaging 14.4 points and 10.6 rebounds, while Smith is at 11.3 and 6.6.

"We weren't very good from the beginning to the end tonight", coach Mark Turgeon said.

Penn State (12-16, 5-12) hit 16 of 31 from the field and shot 5-for-11 from 3-point range in the first half. Stevens and Reaves combined for 36 points and 15 rebounds while three Terps starters reached double figures in scoring and Fernando had a double-double (12 points and 13 rebounds). Meanwhile, Maryland misfired often in a 1-for-9 shooting start. Lead by Penn State's junior guard Jaida Travascio-Green, the Spartans felt the pressure of the five player press Penn State coach Coquese Washington called for. "We fouled the shooter, turned it over our first possession, then we don't run back on defense. That was about all I could take". Maryland has won one of its last two road games, a narrow 66-65 victory at Iowa.

The Nittany Lions have won their last two home games and it would have been three in a row if they had found a way past Purdue in what ended as a 99-90 overtime loss.

Penn State: The Nittany Lions are looking more like the team many thought they'd be earlier in the season.

Some investors may trust professional opinions completely, but others may wish to dig in and do all the research themselves. The fund owned 48,300 shares of the mining company's stock after purchasing an additional 33,800 shares during the period.

With No. 9 MI coming Sunday to Xfinity Center, where a year ago the Wolverines took a 30-point halftime lead and won by 24, it will put more than a little pressure on Maryland to put Wednesday's nightmare quickly in the past.

Now the model has locked in on Maryland vs. Penn State.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Penn State women's basketball team trimmed a 20-point fourth-quarter deficit down to single digits, but couldn't complete the comeback in a 57-48 road defeat at Michigan State in Big Ten action Wednesday night.

Freshman Lauren Ebo registered her second career double-double, and first of Big Ten play, with 13 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Lady Lions. Sophomore Kamaria McDaniel added 12 points and a team-best four assists.

Penn State Nittany Lions are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and Penn State Nittany Lions are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 vs.

The Spartans scored 19 of the final 23 points of the third quarter to take a 51-33 lead heading into the final 10 minutes.
