NEBRASKA: Last season: 22-11, lost in first round of NIT.
Nickname: Cornhuskers.
Coach: Tim Miles.
Conference: Big Ten.
Who's gone: Guard Evan Taylor, center Jordy Tshimanga, guard Anton Gill, center Duby Okeke.
Who's back: Returning All-Big Ten first-team guard James Palmer scored in double figures in 31 of 33 games and his 18.8 points per game in conference play is the most of any returning Big Ten player since 2012-13. Glynn Watson Jr. will be the starting point guard for the fourth straight season. Forward Isaac Copeland averaged 15.8 points on 58 percent shooting in the final nine conference games. Forward Isaiah Roby, at 6-8 and 230 pounds, is a difficult matchup for any opponent. He had four double-doubles in the last eight games.
Who's new: True freshmen Brady Heiman and Amir Harris are in line for significant playing time. The 6-11 Heiman, from Springfield, is the Huskers' first in-state high school scholarship recruit since 2001. Harris, who prepped at St. James School in Hagerstown, Maryland, is a versatile guard who can score and defend. The Huskers sustained a big loss in the preseason when Karrington Davis, a top freshman guard from St. Louis, was lost for the season with an Achilles' injury.
The Skinny: It's been a long time since there has been so much excitement about a Nebraska team entering a season. A fourth-place finish in the Big Ten earned Miles a one-year contract extension. That lukewarm endorsement from athletic director Bill Moos means Miles probably needs to at least match that finish to be back in 2019-20.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have set the odds of Nebraska winning the NCAA Tournament at 200-1, same as fellow Big Ten member Minnesota and lower than in-state rival Creighton (225-1).
MARYLAND: Last season: 19-13, missed NCAA Tournament first time in four years.
Nickname: Terrapins.
Coach: Mark Turgeon.
Conference: Big Ten.
Who's gone: Forward Kevin Huerter (NBA), forward Justin Jackson (NBA), center Michal Cekovsky.
Who's back: Sophomore Bruno Fernando, a 6-foot-10 center, averaged 10.3 and 6.5 rebounds to land on the Big Ten All-Freshman team. Junior guard Anthony Cowan Jr., a two-year starter, will run the offense and was the team's leading scorer last season with 15.8 ppg. Guard Darryl Morsell started 21 games last year, averaging 8.7 points and a team-high 1.8 offensive rebounds. Forward Ivan Bender played in 15 games before a season-ending knee injury on Dec. 29.
Who's new: Freshman center Jalen Smith should be an immediate contributor. Averaged 17.9 points, nine rebounds and three blocks for Mt. Saint Joseph High in Baltimore. ... Guard Serrel Smith Jr. averaged 29.3 points and five rebounds as a senior at St. Petersburg High in Florida. ... Freshmen Trace Ramsey (6-7) and Ricky Lindo Jr. (6-8) provide height off the bench.
The Skinny: Fielding the youngest squad since he arrived at Maryland in 2011, Turgeon expects a return trip to the NCAA Tournament despite having only one scholarship senior (Bender). Jalen Smith and Fernando gives the Terrapins a formidable front court, and Cowan will have plenty of passing options when he's not taking the shot himself from the outside.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have Maryland a 120-1 longshot to win the NCAA Tournament, same as Wisconsin from the Big Ten but far behind conference co-favorites Michigan and Michigan State at 35-1.
Maryland, Nebraska gear up for Big Ten tourney clash

No. 24 Maryland and injury-riddled Nebraska are back to square one as the Big Ten Conference Tournament continues Thursday in Chicago, Ill., with an early afternoon second round matchup following the first game at 12:30 p.m. (ET).

The fifth-seeded Terrapins (22-9) hope to recapture some momentum lost down the stretch as they fell in three of the final six games to fall out of fourth place and the tournament's double-bye. Coach Mark Turgeon was trying to sell the extra game as a positive heading into Maryland's fifth Big Ten Tournament.

"I think the more tournament experience we get, hopefully try to get that first win, which won't be easy," said Turgeon. "You know, this league is tremendous and there are no easy wins out there. But we get on the floor a little bit earlier, get a little more experience. We played on Friday and waiting all the way to next Friday might have been tough."

Nebraska (17-15) didn't have to wait. The 13th-seeded Cornhuskers opened the tournament with a 68-61 win over Rutgers on Wednesday night at the United Center. Senior guard James Palmer had a season-high 34 points to pace Nebraska, which won despite shooting just 40 percent from the field. Palmer's points were just one off the Big Ten Tournament scoring record.

Nebraska struggled early but battled back to overtake the Scarlet Knights, the Cornhuskers taking their first lead with just four minutes to play. It was an incredible testament to coach Tim Miles' team's resilience. The Huskers are down to just eight available players, and just six scholarship guys because of several recent injuries and a suspension.

"James was on his game and we survived early when we didn't make shots," said Miles afterward.

Meanwhile, Maryland's win over Minnesota in the regular-season finale was cathartic on several levels. First, it snapped a two-game losing streak, only the second time the young team had experienced back-to-back losses. Secondly, some of the right players had big games to pick up some confidence heading into the postseason.

Junior point guard Anthony Cowan, the engine that makes Maryland go, bounced back from a slump that saw him hit one of his last 11 3-point attempts. He was 3-of-6 against the Gophers and put them in an early hole, scoring the Terrapins' first five points and finishing with 21 points. Cowan also had five assists and just two turnovers, Maryland's 13.2 turnovers per game has been a major issue all season long.

Jalen Smith, an X-factor for the Terps, also is picking up steam. He had 19 points and 11 rebounds, hitting a career-high three 3-pointers. When the 6-10 freshman puts up that kind of production next to Maryland double-double machine Bruno Fernando (he has 20 this season), the Terrapins are particularly tough.

"(Smith) is stepping in the right direction, where we all want him to be," said Fernando, a First Team All-Big Ten selection. "Now we've got to keep feeding him the ball."

Nebraska dropped two games to the Terps, falling 74-72 in College Park when Smith hit a jumper with three seconds left, and then getting bested 60-45 in February in Lincoln as they shot just 21 percent from the field.

The Huskers lost four straight games before they, too, won their regular-season finale, a shocking 93-91 upset of Iowa. Senior guard Glynn Watson Jr., averaged 20.8 points over the final four regular-season games and gets another game in his Chicago hometown.

"Obviously we've got difficulties," said Miles. "But at the same time ... I think there's some real adventure and fun to this, and I think that's the way the guys look at it, too. They want to keep playing. They've done such a good job of playing different positions and just doing whatever they've had to. We're just rolling with the same thing."
