No. 8 Maryland looks to nest No. 10 Ohio State preview

After a tough loss against No. 6 Iowa, Maryland looks to rebound against another top-10-ranked opponent.

The Maryland Terrapins return to the Xfinity center and defend home court against No. 10 Ohio State. As you are reading this article, there is no recap of the Iowa game. I want to take this opportunity, and see from the perspective of a bounce-back game, so the next article produced will be a compare and contrast of these two matchups.

How will Maryland respond after Thursday?

One of the takeaways from Friday’s loss to Iowa was the slow start as an offense. Maryland can not win games with a slow start. Facing Ohio State they are one of the strongest offenses that average 84 points a game. The Terps allowed 90 points Thursday night. Maryland on both sides of the ball will have their hands full.

If your name is not Shyanne Sellers, Diamond Miller, or Abby Meyers

Please note: This is simply not their fault but it is a recipe that needs fixing. Maryland’s \offense with 68 of its team’s total points came from Sellers, Miller, and Meyers. I blame this when there is no consistent in the offense, and falling into bad habits. The shot selection, at time the lineups, and sets just do not work let’s break it down

Starting Lineup:

Diamond- #1 scoring option

Shy-2nd option

Eliza- Needs to take MAX 10-12 shots

Faith-12- 15 shots MAX

Abby- 3rd option

But more importantly, balance the minutes: Brinae Alexander & Lavender Briggs have proven they can be starters but minutes need to be balanced.

Other Keys:

10-15 Fouls Max (Ohio State is not the strongest free throw shooting team)

20 points from the bench other than Iowa is a good stat for Maryland when we win games.
