Fairfield has a losing record but has been in every game this year.  Besides losing this past overtime game, the Stags have lost by 2 points and 4 points.  Fairfield's defense has look better then average to start the year, but this is a matchup the Stags will be over matched in.  Maryland has made quick work of their non-conference opponents thus far, winning by 24, 18, and 30.  I like the 7th ranked Terrapins to roll to an easy victory here, as their size and physicalness will be to much for the Stags.  Final score prediction, Maryland covers, 88-61.
