Maryland vs St. Bonaventure

The Terps begin their road to the Destin Florida blah blah blah Tournament this evening against St. Bonaventure. The Bonnies have been in the A-10 for decades and have spent most of that time in the bottom half of the conference. Nevertheless, they are not cupcakes. I’d classify them as an upper-tier mid major. They are capable of beating big conference teams and have done so many times over the years.

Make no mistake, anything less than a 10+ point win, would be a disappointment but don’t expect a blowout. If the Terps win, they will earn the opportunity to take on their stiffest competition yet, with a likely date against TCU. TCU is currently 29 in the AP so it’d be a good non conference win and one that would definitely inch the Terps closer to the top 25 themselves.

Another game to keep tabs on tonight is Purdue vs Arizona. Despite Arizona’s loss to NC State this week, they are a top 10 team and it will be interesting to see how Purdue fares. We meet Purdue at the Comcast Center in a couple of weeks.
