Scouting: Maryland forward Jalen Smith is averaging 19.2 points, 12 rebounds and 3.2 blocked shots per game during Maryland's six-game winning streak. The 6-foot-10 sophomore is also the Terps' top three-point shooter, hitting nearly 40% of his attempts. Smith is shooting 48% from three-point range in Big Ten games.
Trending: Nebraska point guard Cam Mack needs five assists to pass Tyronn Lue for fifth all time on the Huskers' single-season assists list. Mack has 148 assists this season. The rest of the Huskers combined have 183.
Forecasting: A depleted Nebraska team has beaten Maryland before, with Johnny Trueblood and the fellas getting the job done last season at the Big Ten Tournament. The Huskers will need a similar effort Tuesday, especially on defense, to have a shot. Wouldn't hurt to make a few more layups either.
