The Crimson Tide and the Terrapins were two of the first teams that were left out of the NCAA Tournament, and both are making claims right now that they should have been in the dance. Neither one of these teams have really dismissed great clubs yet in the postseason though, and that’s what both are trying to do en route to Madison Square Garden for the NIT Final Four on Tuesday night. We really like the way that the Crimson Tide are hanging in there in games. They’ve lost some close ones down the stretch for sure, but they have also fought tooth and nail against some of the top teams in the SEC as well. Maryland though, has clearly been one of the most underappreciated teams in America. Not only did it probably just fall one game in the ACC Tournament short of making the dance, but it probably has the hottest player in the NIT right now in G Dez Wells. Wells has averaged over 18 points per game in his last seven, and that’s when Maryland really went on its run at the tail end of the season. Alabama just doesn’t have a man on its roster that is going to be able to go shot for shot with Wells, nor does it have a man that can body with C Alex Len in the paint either. This is a bad matchup for the Tide, and as a result, we think that it will be their last matchup of the season. Take Maryland all the way to the NIT Final Four on Tuesday.
