Today wasn't the day for Maryland seemingly annual home collapse against an inferior team. The Terrapins rolled to an easy 89-59 win over Maine today at Comcast Center, blowing it open in the first half.
Maryland led 52-29 at halftime after a 17-1 run broke the game open, and had a 30-point lead with under seven minutes to go. Maine is expected to be one of the stronger teams in the American East Conference, so this is a good win for the Terps.
Eleven players played double-digit minutes for the Terps, with nobody playing more than 28. Jordan Williams led the way with 20 points and 11 rebounds, though he shot just 6-15 from the field. Cliff Tucker added 16 points, all in the first half, and Terrell Stoglin had 14 points. Murphy Burnatowski had 17 points for Maine, while Troy Barnies added 16.
The Terps now move on to a far bigger test: No. 5 Pittsburgh in the semifinals of the Coaches Vs. Cancer Classic on Thursday.
