PICK: I’m going to stay with Maryland. They haven’t quite faced anyone on their level yet, but the Terrapins are doing well over their first two victories. There are still some things to work on however; Maryland shot just 2-of-19 (10.5 percent) from 3-point range in their win versus Western Carolina.
As for Binghamton, they’ve looked pretty good themselves over two games so far. This will certainly be the Bearcats’ toughest game yet however, and I don’t think they’ll keep pace for long.
