The Maryland Terrapins trailed the North Carolina Tar Heels 36-26 at halftime, but in the second half they would be facing a Tar Heels team without the help of forward John Henson who injured his wrist in the first half. The Tar Heels didn't seem to really miss him however, as the team rolled right along on the shoulders of center Tyler Zeller. Zeller got in a bit of foul trouble however, picking up his fourth foul with just under ten minutes left in the game.
Every time the Terps seemed to rally and get back in the game however, the Tar Heels would pick up the pace and go on a run. Though North Carolina got in a bit of foul trouble and Maryland was able to get within single digits, the Tar Heels overall depth just proved to be too much as North Carolina when on to win 85-69.
Terrell Stoglin once again led the Terps in scoring picking up 30 points, hitting on five of his eleven three-point shots on the afternoon. Nick Faust and Sean Mosely added 11 and 10 points respectively, but the Terps just couldn't do enough offensively and defensively. For the Tar Heels however, despite losing Henson for the game and Zeller getting into foul trouble had five players score double-digit points. In the game UNC guard Kendall Marshall broke the ACC All-Time single-season assist record, picking up 12 assists in the game..
