Entering the game, the Terps were 5-6 in the ACC, needing a miracle to have any hope of dancing next month. That miracle came with a 83-81 win over the second ranked Duke Blue Devils.
Will it be enough to propel Maryland into the national picture? The answer in short, not yet....
At 6-6, the Terps move into a tie for sixth with Florida State in the ACC standings. To secure a spot in the big dance, the Terrapins probably need to win five of their remaining six games.

How the Terps finish regular season play willl determine just how far they need to advance in North Carolina to secure a spot.
