Longwood Vs. Maryland: Terps Have No Problems With Lancers In Historic 106-52 Win

If a game happens in College Park and no one is there to see it, does it count as a win? For Gary Williams, it was a historic one.

Led by Sean Mosley's 20 points, the Terps demolished the Lancers 106-52.  The win gives Williams 665 career victories, moving him ahead of legendary UCLA coach John Wooden on the all-time wins list. Terrell Stoglin had 15 points off of the bench, while Dino Gregory had 14 points and Haukur Palsson had 13 points. Jordan Williams had a rare game without a double-double, finishing with nine points and 11 rebounds.

The game's outcome was never in question as Maryland jumped out early and never looked back. The Terps shot 54.2% and hit 10 three-pointers. Williams' historic win couldn't have been any easier.

The Terps head back to the ACC for the rest of the season. They head to Chestnut Hill to take on the Boston College Golden Eagles Saturday.


Longwood Vs. Maryland: Terps Exit ACC One Last Time Against Lancers

With the ides of March around the corner, the Maryland Terrapins will play their final non-conference game against the Longwood Lancers Wednesday at Comcast Center.

In the shadow of potentially the ACC's marquee matchup between the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina Tar Heels, the Terps, 4-1 in their last five, will try to add to that against the independent Lancers. Last year's game between the two teams was more or less a laugher; the Terps ran away with a 106-55 win. Longwood is 0-13 on the road this season, while Maryland is 9-0 at home against non-conference opponents.

Jordan Williams leads the nation with 20 double-doubles and is just two short of tying Len Elmore's school record. Longwood junior Antwan Carter has 11 double-doubles of his own and is Longwood's best chance of springing an upset.

After Longwood, the Terps will finish the regular season with seven conference games, four of which are on the road.
