Maryland was able to hold on to their slim lead late in the second half of their game against the North Carolina Wilmington Seahawks to get the win 71-62, despite a run to cut the Terrapins lead to six with just over two minutes remaining.
The Terrapins struggled with ball security, committing 13 turnovers to only 7 assists. The difference in the game was Maryland's ability to get to the foul line, as they shot over two times as many free throws as did the Seahawks.
Though the Terrapins shot a torrid 48 percent from the field, they were a horrid 0-for-9 from 3-point range. The Seahawks hit six 3-pointers, five of which were by Adam Smith who led the game in scoring with 23 points. No other player reached double digits for the Seahawks.
With the win, the Terrapins move to 1-0 on the season. The loss drops the Seahawks to 0-1. For more coverage of Maryland Terrapin basketball, come out of your shell to SB Nation DC.
