#2 Maryland Terrapins 7-1 (0-0)
The Maryland Terrapins have to travel to Ann Arbor to open up conference play with their only loss coming to #1 Albany. With the Terps comes Jared Bernhardt a Sophomore Attackmen who leads the team with 24 goals. However the life blood of the Terps attack belongs to Senior Attackmen Connor Kelly, who sports Maryland’s coveted number 1 jersey and leads the team with 43 points. A tradition since the mid-90s, Maryland’s“No. 1 jersey has been assigned to the player who embodies performance and leadership on the offensive side of the field.” -Edward Lee The Baltimore Sun
Ways to Watch: Big Ten Network, March 31st, 2018 at 12PM ET
Staff Pick: Maryland. Very solid team only lost to Albany who is almost unstoppable. I think Michigan keeps it close until a late surge by the Terps spoils our conference play opener.
Why you should watch: Honestly if anyone reading this is like me then they will absolutely need something to hold them over until the Final Four starts. That and Michigan lacrosse is getting better and seeing their progress against the reigning National Champions should be worth a look.
