If there’s one game in the round of 64 that’s certainly been tough to pick, it’s Xavier vs. Maryland. The sixth-seed Maryland has been inconsistent throughout the entire season, along with the eleventh seeded Xavier Musketeers.
The biggest problem for Xavier has been the loss of their leading scorer Edmond Sumner due to an ACL injury. At one point in January, the Musketeer squad lost six games in a row. They have shown flashes of success and went on to beat rival Butler without Sumner. Xavier is also a very strong rebounding team, ranking 26th in offensive and defensive rebounding percentage.
The Terrapins have experienced their fair share of woes this season, too. Maryland kicked off the season as one of the best teams in the nation and only had two losses through January. They came back down to earth and have currently lost six out of their last 10 contests.
Melo Trimble is the x-factor in this matchup, averaging 17 points per game. He is still regarded as one of the best guards in the country and will need to show it to move past the Musketeers.
