Prediction: Anything can happen in the NCAA Tournament, but the Maryland Terrapins are one of the most talented squads in the entire bracket and have the potential to get hot and find their way deep into the tourney. Against South Dakota State, the Terps will likely be too much athletically, imposing their will.

When it comes down to it, we'll take Maryland to pull it out and move on the the second round. The Tarps played a much stronger schedule and will use that experience to their advantage.
