Scouting: Maryland forward Kaila Charles is averaging 20.7 points in Big Ten games. She’s scored in double-figures in all but one game this season.

Trending: Maryland coach Brenda Frese will be going for her 500th career win on Tuesday in her 20th season as a college head coach. In her 17 seasons at Maryland, the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, native has led the Terps to the 2006 NCAA title, three NCAA Final Four appearances and 14 NCAA Tournament bids.

Forecasting: Here is one game where a win for Nebraska would quickly make up for a couple of Nebraska’s bad losses during the nonconference season. Nebraska has never beaten Maryland in nine games played over the last 10 years but was pretty close in two of the three games played against the Terrapins last season.
