After an emotional ceremony that saw former Terps guard Greivis Vasquez' jersey hung from the rafters, the game began with the Terps coming out strong. Jordan Williams was on the offensive early, as he scored 15 points at the half. That paced the Terps to a double digit lead the majority of the half.
But despite taking a lead for most of the half, the Terps saw the Wolfpack battle back in the final minutes of the half to take the lead. Forward Scott Wood hit two crucial three pointers late in the half that both tied it and gave N.C. State the lead.
The Terps were able to claw back to back it just a two point affair going into the half, but they know they should not have let the Wolfpack back into this game.
