Maryland Form

Maryland are in the second round of the national tournament, but have struggled for consistency.

The Terrapins are 2-3 in their last five games, a sequence that began with back-to-back defeats to finish the regular season.

They were beaten 73-62 at Ohio State and 65-64 at Penn State, and although they rebounded in the first round of the Big Ten Conference tournament, their joy was short-lived.

Maryland downed Minnesota 70-54 in their opening matchup, only to then lose 70-60 to #19 Indiana.

The Terrapins bounced back in the first round of this competition though, edging West Virginia 67-65.

Alabama Form

Alabama go into this matchup in good form having now won eight of their last nine games.

The Crimson Tide dropped a couple of games late in the regular season, but have been red hot since then.

They bounced back from a 67-61 defeat to Texas A&M in their regular season finale with a 72-49 blowout of Mississippi State in the first round of the SEC Championship tournament.

Alabama then followed that up with a 72-61 win against #25 Missouri, before avenging the loss to Texas A&M with an 82-63 win in the final.

The Crimson Tide then made a strong start to the national tournament with a 96-75 victory over #16 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
