The Terrapins have won their last six games, their longest streak since they won seven straight from Feb. 15-Mar. 6, 2010. Most recently, they dealt the Samford Bulldogs a 75-63 defeat behind Terrell Stoglin's 24-point outing. Stoglin shot 8-of-13 from the field and made six three-pointers in the easy victory. The sophomore guard's scoring average of 21.8 ranks him No. 6 in the nation and No. 1 in the ACC.
Cornell, in contrast, has not fared as well as Maryland, losing each of its last four games, but none by more than nine points; it's not as though the Big Red have been blown out during their losing skid. On Saturday, they fell to the Bucknell Bison, 63-60, despite 18 points from Johnathan Gray. Bucknell overcame a five-point halftime deficit to prevail.
Tuesday's meeting is the first betweem Maryland and Cornell since Nov. 1993, when the Terps crushed the Big Red, 92-41.
Maryland's ACC season begins Sunday against the N.C. State Wolfpack.
