Can the Hurricanes get a good win on the road? Or will an angry Terrapins team throw a dent into their NCAA tournament resume?

The Hurricanes take a trip up to College Park, MD for an ACC showdown with the Terrapins. The Hurricanes are on the edge of the bubble right now for a bid to the NCAA tournament and needs a decent road win at the Comcast Center to help their chances out.

The Terps are still coming off their bad 71-44 loss to the Virginia Cavaliers so they will be desperate to come out with a good sense of urgency for their own postseason chances, although they look a little suspect right now with the team at a 15-11 record.

The Hurricanes are off a 74-56 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday and currently stand at 16-9. Any road win is a good win for their NCAA tournament chances and with Durand Scott and Kenny Kadji leading the team in scoring, they will be looking to gain another win to hopefully earn the Hurricanes an NCAA tournament berth in a few weeks.

The game is scheduled for an 8 p.m. tip off broadcasting on Raycom and streaming live on ESPN3.com.
