MARYLAND: Last season: 19-13, missed NCAA Tournament first time in four years.
Nickname: Terrapins.
Coach: Mark Turgeon.
Conference: Big Ten.
Who's gone: Forward Kevin Huerter (NBA), forward Justin Jackson (NBA), center Michal Cekovsky.
Who's back: Sophomore Bruno Fernando, a 6-foot-10 center, averaged 10.3 and 6.5 rebounds to land on the Big Ten All-Freshman team. Junior guard Anthony Cowan Jr., a two-year starter, will run the offense and was the team's leading scorer last season with 15.8 ppg. Guard Darryl Morsell started 21 games last year, averaging 8.7 points and a team-high 1.8 offensive rebounds. Forward Ivan Bender played in 15 games before a season-ending knee injury on Dec. 29.
Who's new: Freshman center Jalen Smith should be an immediate contributor. Averaged 17.9 points, nine rebounds and three blocks for Mt. Saint Joseph High in Baltimore. ... Guard Serrel Smith Jr. averaged 29.3 points and five rebounds as a senior at St. Petersburg High in Florida. ... Freshmen Trace Ramsey (6-7) and Ricky Lindo Jr. (6-8) provide height off the bench.
The Skinny: Fielding the youngest squad since he arrived at Maryland in 2011, Turgeon expects a return trip to the NCAA Tournament despite having only one scholarship senior (Bender). Jalen Smith and Fernando gives the Terrapins a formidable front court, and Cowan will have plenty of passing options when he's not taking the shot himself from the outside.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have Maryland a 120-1 longshot to win the NCAA Tournament, same as Wisconsin from the Big Ten but far behind conference co-favorites Michigan and Michigan State at 35-1.
LSU: Last season: 18-15, lost in second round of NIT
Nickname: Tigers
Coach: Will Wade
Conference: SEC
Who's gone: G Brandon Sampson (turned pro), G Randy Onwuasor, PF Duop Reath, F Wayde Sims (deceased), F Aaron Epps, F Jeremy Combs, F Mayan Kiir (transferred to USF).
Who's back: PG Tremont Waters averaged 15.9 points, 6 assists and 2 steals; G Skylar Mays averaged 11.3 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists; G Daryl Edwards averaged 6.8 points as an intermittent starter; G Marshall Graves averaged 5.1 minutes of playing time in 14 games.
Who's new: F Naz Reid, a five-star prospect from Asbury Park, New Jersey; F Emmitt Williams, a five-star prospect from Fort Myers, Florida; F Kavell Bigby-Williams sat out last season after transferring from Oregon; G Ja'vonte Smart, a four-star prospect named the top high school player in Louisiana last season; F Courtese Cooper is a junior college transfer from Triton; F Darius Days, a four-star prospect from Raleigh, Florida; F Aundre Hyatt, a Rivals' Top 100 player from New York; G Danya Kingsby, a junior college transfer from Southern Idaho; G Marlon Taylor, a junior college transfer from Panola College; G Will Reese, a former LSU baseball player.
The Skinny: The Tigers return their most dynamic player from last season in Waters as well as one of their more reliable and productive back court players in Mays. By adding two five-star recruits, along with the top prospect from Louisiana and an experienced front-court transfer from another major program, Wade has built a team that enters the season ranking No. 23 in the Top 25 poll, and with high hopes of making waves in the SEC and NCAA Tournament. The Tigers will start the season mourning the death of Sims, who was shot and killed late last month.
Expectations: Las Vegas odds makers have LSU at 100-1 to win the NCAA Tournament.
LSU, Maryland big men set for showdown

LSU and Maryland's big men led the way in first-round victories in the NCAA East Regional. Now they'll go head to head in a second-round game Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla.

Naz Reid had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Kavell Bigby-Williams had 10 points and 10 rebounds to lead third-seeded LSU (27-6) to a 79-74 victory against Yale 79-74 on Thursday.

A little while later on the same court, Jalen Smith had 19 points and 12 rebounds and Bruno Fernando had 14 points and 13 rebounds as sixth-seeded Maryland (23-10) outlasted 11th-seeded Belmont 79-77.

LSU opponents generally have their hands full with Reid, an SEC All-Freshman forward. Yale found out how difficult things can get when Bigby-Williams is complementing Reid on the inside for the Tigers.

The Tigers improved to 10-0 in games in which Bigby-Williams has had a double-double and he added four blocked shots.

"He's tremendous," Reid said of Bigby-Williams. "He makes my job way easier than it has to be. You know, if a guy gets by me or baseline, Kavell is right there and he's able to stop the person with the ball, and he's a big help to all of us."

Reid averages 13.7 points and 7.2 rebounds and Bigby-Williams averages 7.9 points and 6.6 rebounds.

The victory against Yale improved LSU's record to 10-0 in games in which Bigby-Williams has a double-double. He also had four blocked shots against Yale.

After scoring just 29 points in the first half, the Bulldogs found their rhythm in the second half, scoring 45 points as they made charge at the Tigers. They could never catch up after trailing by 18 points early in the second half and LSU advanced to the Round of 32.

"It was a pretty tough, hard-nosed team who didn't let up, and they were very competitive," Reid said of Yale. "That's something we are going to see throughout the whole March Madness.

"No discredit to Yale, but it's going to be a lot of tougher teams going forward, so we've just got to be able to balance everything out and do what we do best."

Next up are the Terrapins, who twice had to fight back against Belmont to prevail.

Like LSU, Maryland had a size advantage -- and used it. Smith grabbed eight offensive rebounds and the Terps finished with a 15-10 edge in offensive rebounds and a 41-37 edge in total rebounding.

"(Smith) just wouldn't be denied," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. "He just kept getting offensive rebounds. He was terrific, and finished and played with strength. We've been beating on (Smith) for eight weeks trying to make him tougher.

"He got extra weight - right before he left town he got an extra weight workout, and it showed up today. It takes time when your nickname is Stix, but he played with great toughness."

Maryland trailed by six points at halftime, but Fernando had seven points and an assist during a 14-0 run by Maryland to start the second half.

After Belmont took a seven-point lead midway through the second half, the Terps went on a 14-4 run to take a 74-71 lead with 2:47 left.

Maryland maintained the lead thanks in part to a three-point play by Smith, who averages 11.4 points and 6.6 rebounds as a complement to Fernando's 13.7 points and 10.4 rebounds per game.

"(Smith) had a huge size advantage, and then you add the length of his arms, and he probably had a foot advantage on (his opponent)," Turgeon said. "He just wouldn't be denied. We were able to break them down with penetration. We got in the lane a lot tonight, whether it was through the post or through whatever.

"I thought Bruno was great against the double-team, We had a size advantage and we took advantage of it."
