The Maryland Terrapins won their seventh straight game Wednesday night, blowing out the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks at home, 100-68.
The nation's best rebounding team continued its interior dominance on Wednesday night, as the Maryland Terrapins blew out the Maryland Eastern Shore Hawks, 100-68, in College Park, Md.
The Terrapins outrebounded the Hawks, 43-34, and held a commanding 52-18 advantage on points in the paint.
Forward Charles Mitchell came off the bench to provide the bulk of the damage for Maryland. He finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Starting forward Jake Layman also had 10 points, while freshman center Shaquille Cleare had 12.
Logan Aronhalt led the Terrapins in scoring with 17 points, including 5-for-7 from three.
With the win, Maryland has now won seven straight games after a season-opening loss to Kentucky in Brooklyn. The competition hasn't exactly been tough, however. The Terps' best win came on the road against unranked Northwestern.
Maryland is back on the court Dec. 8 when it hosts South Carolina State. Maryland Eastern Shore, which is still looking for its first win, will also play on the Dec. 8. The Hawks visit No. 11 Cincinnati, followed by a trip north to Connecticut.
