Both teams have been on a downward spiral lately, the Wolfpack (15-15, 5-11) are 3-4 in their last seven games, while the Terrapins (18-13, 7-9) are 2-5 in their last seven, including three straight losses.
Maryland needs two wins to get to 20 for the season, but that doesn't appear likely at this point. N.C. State was a big disappointment in the ACC, as they were a team that had hoped to finish in the top five.
Maryland won the only meeting this season by a score of 87-80 and should likely win this game, as well.
However, this could be Sidney Lowe's last game as coach of the Wolfpack and his team will likely come out fired up and ready to play.
The Wolfpack will rely on Tracy Smith to carry the team to an upset win, he scored 19 in their first matchup and is a senior this year, so don't look for him to go down without a fight.
Look for this game to come down to the wire, and it could be the only upset on the first day of the ACC Tournament.
