Streaking No. 9 Maryland hosts lowly Nebraska

With four weeks remaining in the regular season, Maryland is on a roll.

The Terrapins are ranked No. 9, on top of the Big Ten standings and coming off an impressive road win at then-No. 20 Illinois in a matchup of first-place teams Thursday. Now Maryland is back home, where it has yet to lose this season, ready to meet 13th-place Nebraska on Tuesday night in College Park, Md.

Maryland coach Mark Turgeon knows a “trap game” when he sees one.

The Cornhuskers (7-16, 2-10) are coming off the worst loss of first-year coach Fred Hoiberg’s tenure, a 96-72 defeat at then-No. 17 Iowa on Saturday — a setback Hoiberg termed “humiliating.” Count on Nebraska being ready to play in a spotlight game against a ranked foe, desperately trying to snap an eight-game losing streak.
