In their first ACC game of the 2011-12 season, the Maryland Terrapins trail the North Carolina State Wolfpack 36-30 at the half. It's the first ACC game for both Mark Turgeon and Mark Gottfriend, as Maryland looks to win its tenth in a row over the Wolfpack and eighth in a row this season. Once again, the Terps were led by Terrell Stoglin on the offensive end scoring eight points in the first twenty minutes in Raleigh.
Maryland has been hot from outside, hitting five of their ten attempts from the behind the arc. After a big second half holding off Cornell last week, big man Alex Len has been impressive on the inside. Len has six points, four rebounds, and two blocks but the Wolfpack enjoy a significant rebounding edge. The mercurial C.J. Leslie leads the NC State with a dozen points and six boards.
The Wolfpack scored the final six points of the half, in a game that's had five ties and six lead changes.
