In the shadow of potentially the ACC's marquee matchup between the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels, the Terps, 4-1 in their last five, will try to add to that against the independent Lancers. Last year's game between the two teams was more or less a laugher; the Terps ran away with a 106-55 win. Longwood is 0-13 on the road this season, while Maryland is 9-0 at home against non-conference opponents.
Jordan Williams leads the nation with 20 double-doubles and is just two short of tying Len Elmore's school record. Longwood junior Antwan Carter has 11 double-doubles of his own and is Longwood's best chance of springing an upset.
After Longwood, the Terps will finish the regular season with seven conference games, four of which are on the road.
