The New Hampshire Wildcats visit College Park tonight for Maryland's final tune-up before shipping out to Maui.  NH finished 8-8 in the America East last year and lost in the semifinals of their conference tournament.   Despite being a program on the rise, the Wildcats have no chance of competing tonight.

I'm expecting a result closer to Charleston Southern than Fairfield.  In other words, the Terps could win by 40 points.

Since tonight is a tune-up game, we should look for Greivis to work out the kinks that have plagued him in the early going.  It would be nice to see him hit some runners and some threes in the first half.

I'd also like to see a dominating performance on the boards.  The Terps have no excuse to get out-rebounded against mid-majors (or even have a slight advantage).  Maryland needs to dominate the boards.

Next week will provide some true tests.  Anything but a trip to the Finals of the Maui Classic is a disappointment.  Vandy and Cincy are good teams and a victory in the 2nd round is no given.  What is guaranteed is that Maryland will have its first chance to measure itself against good competition.
