Maryland Vs. Villanova: Terps Conclude Tough Week On The Road Against #7 Villanova

The Terps will conclude their tough road stretch this afternoon against the #7 ranked Villanova Wildcats

After playing Duke down to the wire only to lose in the end, the Terps traveled to Wake Forest and took care of business, beating the Demon Deacons 74-55. In that game, guard Cliff Tucker delivered 21 points off the bench, continuing a solid stretch of play as a reserve. 

As has been the case this season, Jordan Williams is continuing to develop into one of the best inside scorers in country. Williams has 10 straight double double's, an impressive feat for the emerging sophmore. 

However in this game, Williams cannot do it alone. Maryland will be going against a tough Villanova team that has won 10 games in a row, with their last two being against ranked opponents. They have one of the most dynamic back courts in the nation with guards Corey Stokes and Corey Fisher both in double figures on the season. Maryland will not only need to contain them, but generate some offense from players other than Tucker and Williams. 

If they can defeat Villanova, it could go a long way to enhancing Maryland's NCAA Tournament resume.
