Sick and shorthanded, Terps offer little in blowout at Ohio State

Sick and shorthanded, Terps offer little in blowout at Ohio State

Guard CJ Jackson is the second-leading scorer on Ohio State, averaging 13.6 points per game, but more impressively is shooting a clinical 44 percent from deep, while being the team's best passer with 4.3 assists per contest. The last school to rattle off three straight, however, was UCLA in the mid-80s when the Bruins actually strung together four consecutive from 1981-84.

Maryland much like on the road at Michigan State started out hot and raced to an early lead, but in the end, the Buckeyes remained unbeaten in Big Ten Play at 5-0. He figures to reprise a similar role in 2018 while Ohio State breaks in a new quarterback in Dwayne Haskins, who has already shown the ability to be the next big-time signal-caller in Columbus.

From an effective field goal percentage perspective, this will be a matchup of two heavyweights.

But while Maryland's effort on defense was mediocre at best - Huerter noted that his team didn't close out well on Ohio State's shooters, and the transition defense was lackluster - Thursday was also about self-inflicted wounds on offense, too. Totals 32-57 10-12 91.

OHIO STATE: At Rutgers on Sunday night.

But the Spartans were able to tie it on a free throw with 8 seconds left and sent the game to overtime, where they would ultimately come away victorious. Amid a streak of 11 consecutive missed shots, players stood around and watched Anthony Cowan Jr.

The injury bug has not been kind to any Maryland team this year, but it has struck yet another player on the men's basketball team.

Ohio State is 4-5 ATS at home with 8 unders and 1 over.

In returning to Ohio State, Campbell helps bolster a Buckeyes receiving corps that will aim to make a seamless transition for J.T. Barrett's successor at quarterback.

The Terrapins rank 48th in rebounds per game (39.0) while the Buckeyes rank 117th (36.8).

INSIDE THE NUMBERS: Miles Bridges and Joshua Langford combined for 2 points in the first half of Michigan State's overtime win over Rutgers but had 21 of their team's 31 points the rest of the way. MI had lost five straight to the Spartans before winning by 29 points in their last meeting, and MSU looks vulnerable even though it's 11-0 at home.

Ohio State is 2-3 ATS with 3 unders and 2 overs over their last five games.

Campbell had only two receptions in his final two games this season, however.

Maryland jumped out to a seven-point lead 20-13 after Michal Cekovsky slammed home a backdoor pass. Cekovsky was a ideal 5-for-5 and had 10 points with 10:15 to go in the first half.
