ESPN’s Prediction For Today’s Maryland-Belmont Game

ESPN’s Prediction For Today’s Maryland-Belmont Game

But Maryland finally started to come back and began to pull away at the two-minute mark.

Jalen Smith, a McDonald's All-American a year ago and a all-conference freshman team selection this season, took a feed from sophomore guard Darryl Morsell for a monster and-one slam dunk all over a Belmont defender. The ball was up for grabs when Maryland recovered the ball, and Smith got the dunk and a foul to put his team ahead 77-73 with just over a 1:30 minutes left to play. Junior guard Skylar Mays led the way for the Tigers with 19 points and three rebounds followed by double-doubles from forwards Naz Reid (14 points, 10 rebounds) and Kavell Bigby-Williams (10 points, 10 rebounds, four blocks).

Maryland looks to advance to the regional semifinals for the first time since 2016 when it faces No. 3 seed LSU in the second round Saturday. The Tigers defeated Yale earlier in the day.

No strangers to First Round upsets, Maryland's last NCAA Tournament appearance saw them lose to No. 11 Xavier in 2017 as a No. 6 seed. He scored scored 20 points, including three off-balance 3-pointers that kept Belmont in the game, and finished with a game-high 35 points and 11 rebounds. Morsell added 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting.

Nine missed layups in the first half contributed to a six-point halftime deficit for the Terps.

Windler ended the Bruins' drought with five straight points, and the lead changed hands five times from there. The Bruins grabbed the rebound, and instead of using their final timeout while down one, they made a decision to try to run the clock down and take the last shot for the win.

Five is by far the fewest turnovers Maryland has committed all season. The Terps' next opponent, LSU, is extremely athletic and had seven steals against Yale in their opening-round victory.
