What to watch for Maryland: Show some Maryland pride and get revenge against Alabama
After the men’s basketball team lost to Alabama on Monday night, it’s up to the women’s team to get revenge on behalf of all Maryland fans and defeat Alabama. The duo of Ashley Owusu and Diamond Miller combined for 41 points against Mount St. Mary’s and will need to be relied upon again on Wednesday to prevent an Alabama upset victory.
What to watch for Alabama: Jasmine Lewis
The redshirt senior guard was a one-woman wrecking crew against North Carolina as she put up 32 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists. As the biggest playmaker on Alabama’s team, it’s important that the Terps work together to limit her impact on Wednesday.
