Maryland Vs. Miami Preview: Terrapins Looking For First ACC Win In Coral Gables

The Terrapins will be on the road on Wednesday to face another .500 ACC team, the Hurricanes of Miami.

The Maryland Terrapins head south tonight to take on the Miami Hurricanes in Coral Gables, a place that has not been hospitable since the 'Canes joined the ACC. Maryland is 0-5 on the road at Miami in recent years. The game starts at 8 and can be seen on ESPN3. For more on this matchup and what it means for each of the teams involved, here is our Maryland Terrapins blog Testudo Times.

Both of these teams will enter the game tonight at 3-3 in the ACC and tied for sixth place in the conference. The winner will get a crucial victory over a mid-tier conference foe, find themselves with a winning record in conference play, and receive a sizable boost to their bubble hopes. That said: this is a much more important contest for Miami, the home team with real NCAA Tournament ambitions, than Maryland.

That pretty much sums it up. This could be a very big win for the Terrapins if they can get it, but the Hurricanes probably aren't going to be rolling over on their home court.

We'll have plenty more on this game throughout the day on SB Nation D.C., s keep it looked to this StoryStream. For more on the Terps, please check out the aforementioned Testudo Times. For more on the Hurricanes you can head over to the 7th Floor.
