ILLINOIS STORYLINES

SIGN OF UNITY

  • Prior to Maryland’s most recent game against No. 5 Iowa (1/7), senior Darryl Morsell connected with Iowa’s Jordan Bohannon about the possibility of using their platforms to voice frustrations of social inequity following the riots at the United States Capitol just miles away from College Park. As a result, both teams knelt prior to tip-off. Said Aaron Wiggins: “We wanted to unite and send a message together, put a knee on the ground and show what we stand for.”

SERIES HISTORY

  •  The Terps are 11-6 all-time against the Illini, including a 6-2 record since joining the Big Ten in 2014-15. Maryland is also 3-1 at the State Farm Center since joining the league, with its lone loss being in the 2014-15 season.

TOUGH SLEDDING

  • The Terps are in the midst of a nine-game stretch that includes seven matchups against teams ranked in the Associated Press Top-25. All seven of those teams are currently ranked in the top-16. It would mark the first time in Maryland history it would play a span of nine games against seven teams all ranked in the top-16.
