Cornell Vs. Maryland Final Score: Terps Hang On In Sluggish Second Half To Pull Out 70-62 Win

It wasn't a pretty second half at the Comcast Center on Tuesday night, but the Maryland Terrapins held on for an eight point win in their final non-conference game before ACC play tips off this weekend. The Terps struggled against Cornell's zone, unable to get any penetration or interior passing to break it down on the offensive end. Maryland also struggled mightily from behind the arc in the second half and finished only four of 21 from three-point range.

After leading the game off on a 16-0 run, the Terps were outscored by the Big Red by seven points in the second, as Cornell cut the lead to as little as one with just over two minutes to play. But Maryland would go on 9-2 run over the final two minutes to improve to 9-1 at home this season. Cornell was equally poor from three-point range, hitting just seven of a whopping 31 attempts from long distance.

Sean Mosley led the Terps with 19 points but it was Alex Len who came on strong in the second half to keep Maryland in front. Len finished a perfect five for five from the floor, and five of six from the line to finish with 15 points. The big Ukrainian grabbed nine boards as well.

With a seven game winning streak, Maryland will now tip off conference play on Sunday in Raleigh against NC State.
