Maryland enters the 2017 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament as the No. 3 seed after defeating Michigan State on a Melo Trimble game-winning three-pointer with 1.1 seconds to go last Saturday in the regular season finale at XFINITY Center.
Since joining the Big Ten in 2014, the Terps have boasted a third seed or better each season.
Since joining the Big Ten Conference for the 2014-15 season, Maryland leads all conference schools with a .775 overall winning percentage.
