Once again, the Maryland Terrapins went to the half locked in a tight battle with a conference foe, and once again the Terps fell short in the second half. Maryland trailed 32-29 at Cameron Indoor Stadium to the Duke Blue Devils, but were outscored 41-26 in the second half on their way to a 73-55 loss. With the defeat, Maryland falls to 14-10 on the year and 4-6 in ACC play.
Point guard Pe'Shon Howard was missed by Maryland. Howard tore his ACL on Thursday in practice, and without him the Terrapins turned the ball over 13 times while amassing just eight assists. Terrell Stoglin scored 13 points for Maryland, but was just four of 16 from the floor, and at one point was benched by coach Mark Turgeon. Nick Faust chipped in 15 points for the Terrapins.
The Blue Devils were led by the brothers Plumlee, Mason and Miles. Miles grabbed a whopping 22 rebounds for Duke, chipping in 13 points as well. Mason added 16 points and 10 boards.
