The Indiana Hoosiers and the Maryland Terrapins will meet up in college basketball activity on Friday.

Indiana comes into this one at 12-3 on the season so far. The Hoosiers had a seven-game win streak going against Northwestern, Penn State, Louisville, Butler, Central Arkansas, Jacksonville and Illinois before falling against Michigan in their last appearance.

In the loss to the Wolverines, Indiana’s Juwan Morgan led the team on 25 points and eight rebounds. Romeo Langford was also in double-figures for the Hoosiers with 17 points, six rebounds and two assists.

Over on the Maryland side, they’re 13-3 this year. The Terrapins fell to Seton Hall back on December 22, and since have taken out Radford, Nebraska, Rutgers and Minnesota in succession.

In the win over the Gophers, Maryland’s Anthony Cowan topped the team with 27 points, six rebounds and five assists. Jalen Smith added 21 points and eight rebounds for the Terrapins, and Bruno Fernando doubled up on 10 points and 11 rebounds.

The Hoosiers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven Friday games and 9-4 ATS in the last 13 after a straight-up loss. Indiana is 2-5 ATS in their last seven following an ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five versus the Big Ten.

Meanwhile, the Terrapins are 4-1 ATS in their last five versus the Big Ten and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five following an ATS win. Maryland is 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine overall and 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 home games.

In case you missed the game, Indiana never got all that close to Michigan, as the Hoosiers fell behind 44-29 after the first half and ended up falling 74-63. It was pretty much the same thing that happens to every team that plays the Wolverines.

As for Maryland, they’re chugging along on a nice little run of their own and the scoring hiccups they had in early December seem long gone. I think Indiana covers here, but it should be a tight game.

Pick:
Indiana Hoosiers +5
