Maryland’s NCAA tournament drought is officially over. The Terrapins will enter the Big Dance as a No. 4 seed in the Midwest Region, the tournament committee announced on Sunday evening.
Former Maryland Terrapin Ashton Pankey registered a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds on Monday night, helping Manhattan to a 79-69 upset victory over Iona in the MAAC title game.
The Maryland Terrapins have 66/1 odds of winning the 2015 national championship, according to Bovada.lv. Those are the same odds as three other teams -- Michigan State, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
October is the time for optimism in college basketball, and the feeling was on display yesterday in College Park.
