In what could potentially be the most bubbly matchup of the entire year, Maryland and Virginia will face off on the final day of the regular season.
Virginia carries one of the oddest tournament profiles in recent memory, with three losses to CAA opponents (including one to 320-plus RPI Old Dominion) and three more losses to teams with an RPI higher than 100.
However, at 20-9 with wins over Duke, North Carolina, NC State and at Wisconsin, the Cavaliers can still eke their way into the field of 68.
Maryland, also at 20-9, doesn't have nearly as many strong wins. However, the team's only bad losses have come against Georgia Tech and Boston College on the road. The Terps also have wins over Duke and NC State.
Maryland probably needs this victory more than Virginia to get into the field. Here are five keys for the Terps to beat the surging Cavaliers.
