Wisconsin got outplayed by Maryland

Maryland point guard Jahmir Young scored 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds as Maryland overpowered Wisconsin 73-55 on Wednesday night at Xfinity Center in College Park, Maryland.

Maryland shot 56 percent from the field and went 6 of 14 (42.9 percent) from three. Maryland also had 38 points in the paint to Wisconsin’s 22 which contributed to the victory.

This game was lost in the first half. Maryland went on an 12-0 scoring at the tail-end of the half despite Wisconsin cutting the deficit to 32-28 they didn’t have enough offense to overcome Maryland’s hot-shooting night.

When Connor Essegian and Tyler Wahl are carrying the scoring load (19 and 13 respectively) that isn’t going to win you many games in the Big Ten. Chucky Hepburn scored a career-low three points, and Steven Crowl only had 11 that isn’t enough to win on the road.

Head Coach Greg Gard shared the same sentiment where he said the game got away from Wisconsin especially in the second half.

“The start of the second half is where I didn’t think we were near as physical and defensive-minded there early,” Gard said. “We let things happen way too easy.”

Wisconsin’s next game is against the Illinois Fighting Illini

Tip-off is set for 2:00 p.m. at the Kohl Center.


Badgers guard Max Klesmit missed his second straight game after taking an elbow to the face last week against Penn State.
