Playing short-handed, it was clear Friday just how small Connecticut's margin for error is right now. But in putting together a 72-55 victory over No. 8 Maryland, the gap between the Huskies and the rest of the country remains.
It wasn't the showdown any of us expected when the schedule came out. But Maryland did prove that even when outmatched, the Terps can take a lot out of even one of the best teams.
