On Thursday afternoon the Maryland Terrapins started their 2019 NCAA tournament run with a 79-77 win over the Belmont Bruins. It was a slug fest of a game, with both teams trading punches down the stretch. In the end, the Terps pulled out the win to advance to the second round for the first time since 2016.
Coming into this matchup Belmont was a trendy upset pick across the country and probably even a favorite in the state of Maryland due to chronic pessimism coming from Terps fans.
