The Maryland Terrapins still have a chance to earn a spot in the NCAA Tournament. But It won’t be easy.

They will likely have to win the ACC Tournament, and that involves beating North Carolina this afternoon.

The Tar Heels are the top seed in the tournament and the regular season ACC champions. They also beat the Terps in their two contests earlier this year, including an 88-64 drumming last month in Chapel Hill.

Maryland is 17-14 on the season after beating Wake Forest in its opening round game yesterday, 82-60.

Georgetown’s hopes for a Big East Tournament title are over, but it will almost certainly be playing in the NCAA Tournament anyway. The Hoyas lost to Cincinnati in double overtime 72-70 in the second round of the Big East Tournament.

Georgetown is still 23-8 on the season and will likely receive an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament.
