No. 6 Maryland heads up to Madison Square Garden in New York City to face Connecticut on Tuesday night as part of the Jimmy V Classic.
Here are 5 things you need to know.
1) Another big stage
Maryland has already played a major national game against Georgetown at home. They are one week removed from a heavyweight title fight against North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Now, they play a game that head coach Mark Turgeon calls a "different animal" altogether.
Some Terrapins have played at Madison Square Garden before, including Duke transfer Rasheed Sulaimon. Others have not, including star forward Robert Carter, Jr. Expect it to be loud and, because West Virginia-Virginia precedes it, there likely won't be many Maryland supporters among the "neutral" crowd watching a second game.
2) Avoiding an early hole
Against Georgetown and North Carolina, problems in the first few minutes gave Maryland a deep hole out of which it needed to climb. They looked nervous, jittery, and tentative in those games, showing itself in turnovers and a lack of offensive flow.
Turgeon said he can't promise that Maryland has cleared that mental hurdle, but he is hoping they have. It's almost not even comparable, but playing with the energy they did early against St. Francis would benefit them.
3) Can Jake Layman keep it going?
After struggling to find his shot against North Carolina, Maryland made it a point to get senior Jake Layman going against St. Francis. He responded and carried the offense early in that blowout win.
On a bigger stage against a better opponent, can he keep it going?
4) Loaded with talent
Connecticut's roster is deep and talented. From guards like Sterling Gibbs and Rodney Purvis to wings like Daniel Hamilton and Shonn Miller, even down into the post with rim protector Amida Brimah, this is another team that matches Maryland straight up.
The positive for the Terrapins, though, is that if the UNC game is any indication, they play up to the challenge their opponent presents. Defensively, Maryland will have to improve and keep those guards out of the lane. To combat the depth, they'll need to stay out of foul trouble.
5) Still so versatile
Melo Trimble didn't need to score much at all for Maryland to win by 41 over St. Francis. Layman struggled vs. UNC and Maryland was in it until the end. There are so many interchangeable parts on this team in terms of ways they can beat you that they become difficult to defend.
Expect Trimble to be featured, though, because any game with good guard play he tends to pop up and make himself a force.
