The Maryland Terrapins blew a chance to reach .500 in conference play, losing 63-61 to ACC cellar dweller Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon in Atlanta.
The Terrapins, after leading by six points at halftime, were outscored 32-24 in the second half by the Yellow Jackets, and despite Georgia Tech's attempts at the end to give the game to Maryland (four turnovers in final two minutes), Mark Turgeon's club was unable to steal a victory.
Terrell Stoglin led the Terps with 18 points, but was just one of six from three point land, missing a three late that could have tied the game. Sean Mosely chipped in 16 points and three rebounds for Maryland. As a team, the Terps finished the game shooting just 34.5 percent from the floor, and turned the ball over 10 times to just seven assists.
Georgia Tech was led by Kammeon Holsey, who had 16 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks. Daniel Miller added 10 points. The Yellow Jackets shot 44.9 percent for the game.
Entering the game, the Terrapins had won 11 of their last 12 games against Georgia Tech, including ten straight in the regular season.
