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.
