Jason Szenes

Maryland made buckets tough to come by for South Carolina State, holding the Bulldogs to 18 points in the first half while having a balanced scoring attack in the win.

The Maryland Terrapins reeled off their eighth-straight win by dispatching the S. Carolina St. Bulldogs, 61-46 in College Park on Saturday.

Defensively, the Terrapins held the Bulldogs to just 32.1 percent shooting from the field and allowed 18 points in the first half. South Carolina State had more success shooting from 3-point range, converting 7-of-15 attempts.

Center Alex Len had 13 points and six rebounds and was the only Maryland player to reach double figures. The rest of the offense, however, spread the scoring with nine other players recording at least two points.

Three areas in which the Terrapins held a sizable advantage was bench scoring, rebounding and free throw attempts. Maryland received 27 points from their second unit, compared to nine from the Bulldogs. On the boards, where they rank first in the nation, the Terrapins grabbed 38 rebounds to South Carolina State's 24. Maryland also got to the line and shot a higher percentage than the Bulldogs, hitting 18-of-22 attempts.

The Terrapins continue their nine-game homestand when they next take on the Monmouth Hawks next Wednesday.
