Maryland vs. Lafayette recap: Terrapins use parade to free-throw line to defeat Leopards

Kevin C. Cox

Terrapins stay aggressive on offense and earn their third win of the season.

The Maryland Terrapins defeated the Lafayette Leopards, 83-74, on Tuesday in College Park. The Terrapins put together a balanced attack, with five players in double figures and only one player taking more than 10 shots. Alex Len had 16 points, while James Padgett had 14 points, Nick Faust had 13, and Dezmine Wells added 11.

The Terrapins shot 51.8 percent from the field, and the figure would have been higher if it wasn't for a 3-for-15 showing from behind the three-point line.

The Leopards were led by 20 points from Seth Hinrichs, who led four players in double figures. But the Leopards could not overcome the 15-point disparity at the free-throw line, as they only went to the stripe seven times (making all of their foul shots) compared to 32 trips by the Terrapins (who made 22). That differential was the difference between the Leopards leaving with an upset and going home disappointed.

The Terrapins improved to 3-1, while the Leopards fell to 1-4. The Terrapins will play Georgia Southern on Nov. 24 at 7:00 p.m.
