Nebraska (19-8, 10-4 Big Ten) and Maryland (17-10, 6-8 Big Ten) meet for the 6th time in series history on Tuesday. All 6 meetings between the two have come since the Terrapins joined the Big Ten.
Maryland currently leads the all-time series 4-1 with 4 of the last 5 meetings having been decided by 5 points or less. Nebraska’s only win over the Terrapins came last season with a 67-65 comeback win.

Nebraska-Maryland basketball preview
Nebraska comes into the matchup with Maryland looking for its 20th win of the season. The Huskers’ 19 wins are currently tied for most in one season under coach Tim Miles. If Nebraska can get the 20th win over Maryland, it would be the first time the Huskers have hit 20 wins in a season since 2007-08. It would also give Nebraska six straight conference wins for the first time in 20 years.
The Huskers are currently playing some of their best basketball, having won seven of the last eight games. The only loss during that stretch came to Big Ten leader Ohio State. Nebraska most recently defeated Rutgers on Saturday, limiting the Scarlet Knights to 35 percent shooting in a 67-55 victory.
Against Rutgers, James Palmer Jr. had 15 points and 4 assists. He paced four Huskers in double figures. Isaiah Roby also had a strong game against the Scarlet Knights, posting his second double-double of the year with 10 points and 11 rebounds.
Roby, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, impressed with a dunk against Rutgers that caused the Big Ten Network camera to go out of focus. His performance over Nebraska’s last 5 gamess has also led him to average 10.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game.
As for Maryland, the Terrapins come into the matchup after a 73-57 victory over Northwestern on Saturday. It was one of Maryland’s best wins this season, as sophomore Kevin Huerter led the Terrapins with 22 points and 5 rebounds. Huerter is considered one of the better playmakers in the Big Ten, averaging 14.8 ppg, 5.4 rpg, and 3.5 apg. Sophomore guard Anthony Cowan is not far behind, averaging 16.2 ppg, 5.0 apg and 4.4 rpg.
The Tuesday matchup also marks Red Cross Night. Nebraska student-athletes will be collecting donations for the Red Cross during halftime.
