The Hoos get the unique opportunity to see the Terrapins out of the ACC in the final conference matchup between the two schools. All of the ACC is rooting for Virginia right now to make sure the Terps get a proper farewell from the conference they helped found.

Virginia has ulterior motives as they continue to strengthen their bid for a No. 2, or possibly No. 1, seed in the NCAA Tournament. A win today will also give the Hoos a spot in the ACC annals as the only team to ever have 17 conference wins in a season. It will also give UVA their first ever 14-game ACC winning streak and a school record eight road wins.

Maryland has four players averaging in double-digit points per game: Dez Wells, Seth Allen, Jake Layman and Evan Smotrycz. Nick Faust is also right up up there with 9.7 points per game. Against Virginia Tech, they had 18 assists and only five turnovers.

Alright, Hoo fans. One last game thread for this regular season! Leave your pre-, in-, and post-game thoughts here and as always, Go HOOS!
