Following a 22-13 season and a round of 32 appearance in the 2023 NCAA Tournament, the Maryland Terrapins and head coach Kevin Willard took a big step back in the current season. Maryland gushed red ink as one of the worst values on the board and was never a threat in the Big Ten Conference regular season race. Willard has developed one of the better defensive teams in college basketball, but Maryland is horrible offensively. Maryland’s inability to score consistently was a death blow to their postseason aspirations and gamblers backing them.

Maryland Terrapins Team Review

Overall, the Maryland Terrapins are 15-16 straight up, 12-19 against the spread, and 12-19 over/under the total. Maryland has national metrics of 288th for scoring offense, 328th for field goal percentage, 353rd for 3-point field goal percentage, 171st for free throw percentage, and 154th for offensive rebounding. While defensively, Maryland is 23rd for scoring defense, 62nd for field goal percentage permitted, 65th for 3-point field goal percentage allowed, and 157th for defensive rebounding.

Late on, Maryland has covered one of its previous five games. Maryland has gone over the total in five of its last eight outings. First among Maryland scorers is G Jahmir Young, with 20.4 points per game.

John Blackwell came off the bench to score 18 points, and three other players scored in double figures, leading Wisconsin to an 87-56 blowout of Maryland in the second round of the Big Ten tournament.

Steven Crowl scored 17 points, A.J. Storr had 16 points, and Chucky Hepburn added 10 points for Wisconsin, which made 16 of 25 shots (64 percent) from 3-point range and went 31 of 60 (51.7 percent) from the field overall. The Badgers also held a 42-25 rebounding advantage and had 25 assists.

Jahmir Young scored 18 points, and DeShawn Harris-Smith added 16 points in defeat for Maryland, which finished the season 16-17 in Kevin Willard's second year as head coach.

Wisconsin built a 21-point lead at halftime thanks to torrid shooting from 3-point range. The Badgers went 10 of 13 (76.9 percent) from behind the 3-point line en route to a 47-26 lead at intermission.

Maryland basketball was improved after one season under head coach Kevin Willard. The Terrapins are coming off a 22-13 record that saw them finish fifth in the Big Ten standings and earn a 9-seed in the South region of the NCAA Tournament. They fell in the second round of the tournament, but with a bulk of their roster back and more two-way pieces added to the fold, Coach Willard and the Terrapins looked to keep things going. Instead, the 2023-24 season was a big step back.

Year 2 under Coach Willard was an interesting one as he looked to make it two NCAA Tournament appearances in a row. But the season was a letdown.

The Terrapins had a ton of versatile weapons at their disposal in their rotation to use alongside Jahmir Young to be a successful group. While they aren’t the most efficient perimeter shooting group, they were to be a stifling defense stalwart, as is Coach Willard’s style. Maryland ranked 28th in college basketball this past season in scoring defense, allowing just 63.5 ppg.

Maryland returned three of their top four scorers from last year’s squad. They’ll add a trio of pieces from the DMV area and another trio of acquisitions out of the transfer portal as they look to continue their success on the hardwood heading into 2023-24.

Jahmir Young, Julian Reese, and Donta Scott are the leading returning names. At the same time, DeShawn Harris-Smith, Jamie Kaiser, and Johnathan Lamothe are a trio from their 2023 recruiting class from the DMV scene, looking to make a splash in the rotation in their debut seasons.

Jordan Geronimo (Indiana), and Mady Traore (New Mexico State) were their transfer portal additions with some experience already under their belt. Geronimo had conference experience already, while Traore looked to show they could contribute to the Power 6 Conference stage.
