The Penn State offense is rolling. The Nittany Lions have scored at least 72 points in seven of their last nine games against a Maryland team who have already defeated Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota on the road.
The Terrapins will try to slow this game down, as they rank 20th in the nation for the fewest possessions per game and don’t put much pressure on defense as they rank 289th per game in steals.
Penn State’s big weakness lies within and allows opponents to score 56.1 percent of their 2-point shots, ranking 326th nationwide. However, Maryland only shoots 57.4 percent of its shots from the 3-point arc, which ranks 292 among the Division I teams.
Aside from their game against the non-DI Wingate team, the Terrapins have scored 67 points or less in each of their games that calendar year, in large part due to their success at many of their possessions. They rank 305th in offensive rebounds per game and 324th in real street games with 5.3 offensive rebounds per game.
Penn State has completed at least 11 offensive rebounds in seven of its last eight games. With striker John Harrar giving the team at least eight rebounds in all but one game, the Nittany Lions should control the boards and ultimately the game.
