Thanks to 16 points from guard R.J. Price and 11 points from forward Javonte Green, the 3-10 Highlanders out of the Big South Conference were able to take a 39-39 tie into the half against the 6-3 Terrapins.
James Padgett had nine points and seven rebounds to lead Maryland's offensive effort. Forward Ashton Pankey had eight points and leading scorer Terrell Stoglin had five points on 2-7 shooting. Though no Terrapins are in double figures yet, however, the team's problems in the first half weren't on offense.
Maryland allowed Radford to shoot a solid 46.7 percent from the field, including a 6-13 performance from behind the 3-point arc.
In the second half, the Terps will likely look to put their considering rebounding advantage in the first half to work. The Terps beat the Highlanders 19-11 on the boards in the first half, including 11-5 on the offensive glass. If Maryland can keep that going, it should have a good chance to pull away as the game goes on.
