College Basketball Gambling: Opponents not digging Maryland's balls

02.12.2016     07:56 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
More rumblings about opposing teams not liking the Under Armour balls Maryland plays with at home. Iowa complained about it following its 74-68 loss two weeks ago. In that game, the Hawkeyes shot 5-of-24 from three. Purdue practiced all week with them but ended up hitting only 3-of-25 from deep in a 72-61 loss. Saturday's opponent, Wisconsin, isn't a big fan either and vividly remembers last year's 38% FG, 53-point stinker in College Park. Now it's not as if Maryland doesn't have other factors in its favor like a strong home court and an above average defense. However, if you spend 95% of your time with a leather ball and then switch over to a different material, it do doubt feels weird and can easily throw off your shot. But while it probably is somewhat of an advantage for the Terps, who are undefeated at home, it hasn't resulted in any profits with a 6-7 ATS mark.


“It feels different,” Hawkeyes junior guard Peter Jok told a pair of Iowa beat reporters. “It’s heavy like a street ball, like an outside ball. No excuses. It does feel weird.”

“I’d say it’s a little overblown,” Koenig said. “Out of the Big Ten, the Under Armour balls at Maryland is the only place I really, really didn’t like the balls.”
