Maryland 72 Notre Dame 51
#3 Maryland took off on Notre Dame and never looked back. This was a true team effort, outside of Anthony Cowan Jr, the starters all hit double digits while allowing just two Notre Dame players to hit double digits at all. Maryland proved themselves to be a good defensive team against Marquette, and that same effort carried over into this game. Jalen "Stix" Smith led Maryland with 15 points, and also grabbed 16 rebounds! Look out for Maryland!
Ohio State 74 North Carolina 49
#6 Ohio State went to North Carolina and handled business! This held as one of the better matchups in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, but didnt live up to expectation. North Carolina was off to a decent start in this game, early leads, nice momentum. Suddenly at the 12:27 mark of the 1st half, OSU regained the lead and never looked back. UNC kept it close up to half time, but were never able to corral Duane Washington, who led the Buckeyes with 18 points and 5 rebounds, and Ej Lidell who came off the bench with a solid 12 points. UNC has suffered there second loss of the season but have a sure chance to prove themselves as soon as this Sunday versus #5 Virginia.
