Outlook: Reigning national champion Maryland takes on another of the hottest teams in the country as the Midshipmen aim for a second straight trip to the final four. The Terps have won 17 straight games since falling to North Carolina, 16-15 in overtime, on Feb. 24. Navy has won nine in a row since falling to Loyola Maryland, 16-12, on April 7. The Midshipmen have avenged that loss twice — 17-10 in the Patriot League championship and 19-15 in Sunday’s NCAA second round. The Big Ten champion Terps are coming off their most stifling defensive performance of the season, a 15-4 second-round win over Denver. Maryland and Navy have met just once, a 19-6 Terps win in the 2011 NCAA tournament. The showdown features two of the most successful coaches in tournament history. Timchal coached the Terps to eight national championships before departing to start the Navy program in 2008. Reese, who played for Timchal at Maryland, has guided the Terps to four national championships since taking over as coach in 2007. Both teams’ scoring offenses rank in the top six in Division I and both are led by their all-time leading goal scorers. Maryland’s Tewaaraton Award finalist, Whittle, with 294, ranks second all time in Division I, while Navy’s Collins has 223.
