The Maryland Terrapins face ACC rival Boston College tonight. The game should be a close one between two struggling ACC teams that are striving for an eighth place finish in their conference. Both teams have recently been struggling with the Eagles losing seven of their last eight games and the Terps losing six of their last eight.
At 14-10, 4-6 in the ACC, the Terps are at the point where they're basically playing for a .500 level record. It's a disappointing end result for a team that was 10-2 toward the beginning of the season. Yet maybe it's not that much of a surprise considering how much the Terps start out fast and then easily get worn down by superior competition.
Boston College is clearly worse off than Maryland as they are 8-17 overall, 3-8 in the ACC. Yet Maryland cannot take this desperate team for granted. If Maryland is to win tonight, these five players will likely need to step up.
