Duke Vs. Maryland Final Score: Blue Devils Pull Away In Second Half For 74-61 Win Over Terps

With a pregame dedication of Gary Williams court on an emotional night in College Park, the Maryland Terrapins simply ran out of gas to fall 74-61 to the Duke Blue Devils. After an up-and-down first half, Maryland struggled to get much going on the offensive end in the second. The Terps had a four-plus minute scoreless streak down the stretch, as the Blue Devils pulled away.

Terrell Stoglin led the Terps with 16 points but the typically solid free-throw shooter was just two of seven from the charity stripe. No other Maryland players were in double figures. The Terp guards had success penetrating in the first half with Stoglin, Pe'Shon Howard, and Sean Mosley creating offense in the lane. The Blue Devils completely shut that off over the final twenty minutes.

Mason Plumlee was dominant on the inside for Duke. He did everything for the Blue Devils on both ends of the floor, scoring a game-high 23 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. The Terps simply had no answer up front.

Maryland is now 2-3 in the ACC. They will look to rebound on Saturday afternoon when they host the Virginia Tech Hokies.

Duke Vs. Maryland Score Update: Terps Go Back-And-Forth With Devils In First Half, Trail 37-34

The Duke Blue Devils have a 37-34 lead over the Maryland Terrapins after one half in College Park. In front of a jam-packed and rowdy Comcast Center crowd, the Terps came out with intensity on both ends of the floor to match the top-ten ranked Blue Devils. Mark Turgeon's team has had success getting into the lane, scoring a majority of their points off guard penetration. Pe'Shon Howard, Terrell Stoglin, and Sean Mosley have all been able to beat Duke's guards off the dribble to set up the offense. Mosley has six points, while Howard has five. The Terps senior leader took a charge on Austin Rivers and then created an layup for James Padgett on the other end to cut Duke's lead to three at the half.

Mason Plumlee has had his way on the interior thus far, getting easy buckets and getting to the free-throw line where he's been shooting better of late. He has a game-high 12 points, while grabbing five boards. Ryan Kelly also shot the ball well early, adding 7 points off the bench.

Maryland will try to carry over the emotion of the Gary Williams floor dedication in front of a lively crowd looking for the upset.

Gary Williams Court Christened, Former Maryland Basketball Coach Thanks Players, Fans And Students

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Many fans call the Comcast Center the "House that Gary Built." On Wednesday, before a game against rival Duke, Gary Williams saw his name painted on to the court, cementing his future legacy as a Hall of Fame coach of the Maryland Terrapins.

The ceremony to honor Williams featured Terps luminaries in the crowd like Juan Dixon and Walt Williams, along with current Maryland administrators and athletic director Kevin Anderson. The roar of the crowd reached its apex when Gary Williams emerged from the tunnel and walked to the court.

As his customary practice, Williams shot up a triumphant, proud fist into the air. The packed Comcast Center responded with reckless cheer. The tone for the night was set.

Speaking to reporters after the brief on-court ceremony, Williams said he gave his fist pump a "B+" acknowledging that he was slightly out of practice. For the crowd, huddled into a rocking Comcast Center, the fist was more than an A+. it was the culmination of the House that Gary Built.

Duke Vs. Maryland: Quinn Cook And Michael Gbinijie Out For Blue Devils With Illness

It's likely the biggest night of the season in College Park, as the rival Duke Blue Devils come calling for their annual visit to the Comcast Center. Mike Krzyzewksi's club will be without a couple players, however, as both Quinn Cook and Michael Gbinijie did not travel with the team and remained in Durham because of illness. Cook, along with Tyler Thornton, is a local product who played at DeMatha before transferring to Oak Hill.

Via @ACCNow:

It has to be disappointing to miss out as he had to be looking forward to coming home and playing in front of friends and family. But Duke's loss is Maryland's gain, with Cook averaging more than 12 minutes and five points per game at the point guard spot. Gbinijie averages a little more than eight minutes a game.
