What to watch for Maryland: Do they rebound after road loss?
Before falling to Northwestern on Wednesday, Maryland had won five in a row, including wins over Rutgers and Michigan State. Ultimately coming up short against a Wildcats team they expected to beat, Sunday’s season finale represents a chance to end the regular season on a high note. Sitting at 15-11 and 9-10 in conference, a win would allow them to go .500 in conference and also bolster their resume more as both the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments approach.
What to watch for Penn State: Do they complete the season sweep?
A year removed from winning 21 games, the Nittany Lions have endured a trying season, and likely will find themselves on the outside looking in come tournament time. Regardless, they have a chance on Sunday to sweep the Terps on the season, and potentially build some momentum just ahead of the Big Ten Tournament.
