Joe gives Terps a boost

Joe Lunardi's latest NCAA tournament projection improves Maryland one notch to a 7 seed. That was based on performance before Thursday night's victory at Iowa. Bracketology

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Fran McCaffery just berated the refs, swore on national TV and nearly missed the handshake line. But questionable calls didn't stop his Iowa team. Maryland did. Melo Trimble did. That early 15-point hole did. Trimble looked all-Big Ten down the stretch.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Iowa was down 54-41 with 15:07 to play in the second half. Take the first lead of the game on Ahmad Wagner's free throw. Been outworking Maryland since that point in the game. Hawkeyes attacking the rim and forcing turnovers. Maryland is a mess.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

What a run by Iowa. Maryland falling apart against the zone. Not attacking. Just waiting for something to open, scrambling with shot clock winding down, taking bad shots or committing turnovers. Iowa back in this.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Iowa freshmen refusing to back down. Attacking the rim. But the Hawkeyes can't give up easy buckets on the other end as they try to close the gap. Ruining the momentum they build with these brief runs.

Maryland controlling Iowa on the road

An early alley-oop from Kevin Huerter to Damonte Dodd helped set the tempo in the first half for the 25th-ranked Terrapins, who lead 41-32 on ESPN.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

In a race as unpredictable as the current title hunt in the Big Ten, Maryland is a contender. For now. But its schedule helps its cause. Terps face Wisconsin (road), Northwestern (road) and Purdue (home) just once. But it's hard to get too excited about a team with a 4-1 record that includes two wins over Illinois.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Maryland doing a great job hedging on those screens for Peter Jok. He's Iowa's only reliable option. They know it. The world knows it. Iowa looks great if Jok scores 30 but exposed if he can't. Balanced Maryland team patient and getting back on defense on transition.

Watch: Iowa hosts Big Ten-leading Maryland

With one-third of Big Ten play in the books, the 25th-ranked Terrapins sit atop the conference as they play at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Thursday. (7 p.m. ET on ESPN/WatchESPN)

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Somewhere in Iowa City, there is a Hawkeyes squad that beat Purdue, Iowa State and Michigan. The Iowa team that let Nebraska Omaha score 98 was on the court the first five minutes of this game. Hawkeyes more aggressive on defense now but this start is familiar.

ESPN Stats and Information  

No. 25 Maryland plays at Iowa (7 p.m. ET on ESPN/WatchESPN) having won 21 of its last 23 games against unranked opponents dating to last season. The Hawkeyes, though, have won five of their last six home games against ranked opponents (they're 2-0 this season). ESPN's BPI sees it as essentially a toss-up.

BPI names conference winners; Kansas is not among them

Kansas looks like the favorite to win a 13th consecutive Big 12 title, but BPI sees things differently. We crunched the BPI numbers and have the winners in all six major conferences.

Can a Big Ten team contend for the title?

It has been a long time since the Big Ten won the national championship. The league will fill the NCAA tournament with teams this season, but are any of them really in the national title picture?
