    Good. Either we get a chance at payback vs. Sparty or we play a Maryland team we match up well with.

    Wouldn’t mind the rubber match with Sparty, but Maryland is a bad rebounding team, so it would be nice to face a team that shouldn’t hurt us on second chance opportunities.

    @umhoops I think you mean 11:30 EST, no?

    I need that Michigan State rematch now.

    If we had to choose we should want to face Maryland. Maryland doesn’t have a lot of height to bother Dickinson imo and their backcourt still goes 6’5-6’6. That would be good to have Chaundee out there along with Franz-Livers-Smith-Dickinson. I can’t see Brooks being ready for Friday and against MSU they would just hunt Watts or Henry and get a mismatch. MSU seemed quite comfortable playing Bingham 25 mins down low.
