The Maryland Terrapins are obviously the better team here, but there is potential for a letdown given the opponent, especially when this is one of the bigger games of the season for the Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers. Also, Mount St. Mary's is an experienced team that put up honest efforts last season against Georgetown, Washington and Kentucky. The Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers actually led a top-20 Washington team last season with just 11 minutes to go. This isn't a pushover team.
Give me the points.
