NIT Preview: Maryland at Minnesota

If you can't see the tables below, click back to the blog to see them.

The story of this game is turnovers. Minnesota is 12th-best in the nation in adjusted defensive turnover rate, forcing opponents to turn the ball over on 21.9% of their possessions; Maryland ranks 256th nationally in adjusted turnover rate, coughing the ball up 19.6% of the time. On average, Maryland would be expected to turn the ball over on over a quarter of its possessions against the Golden Gophers. For Gary Williams' team to win this game they'll have cut that turnover rate in half.
