No. 9 Maryland Lady Terps look for a season sweep at home vs Lady Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The No. 9 Maryland Lady Terps return back home to the Xfinity center after a tough loss road against No. 9 Indiana. Maryland Looks to sweep Rutgers in the regular season.
The Keys To Victory!
How does Maryland respond after Thursday’s loss?
The offense manage to score 61 points against Indiana but it was an ugly 61. Diamond Miller led all scorers, and Brinae Alexander was a sparkplug off the bench. As a cohesive unit 21 out of 57 shots were made, it will be interesting to see how Maryland looks out there for 2nd time against Rutgers.
Can everyone except Brinae Alexander PLEASE step up?
I will say this until I am blue in the face, the others around Diamond Miller will be key to the success especially come March, Diamond can not have a slow start, and no one else find a way to generate some offense. You will not see Maryland shoot 37% against this Rutgers team who have picked it up lately since the last time we saw them.
What to expect in round 2 against Rutgers?
Do you remember Kaylene Smikle? She dropped 29 points in the first matchup. Smikle has been carrying this Rutgers one-dimensional offense and is dead last in Big Ten scoring. Rutgers defense will not be as tough compared to Indiana but since the last time we face them the defense has picked, and hopefully, Maryland will come out and play all around the ball.
