Maryland Vs. Virginia: Terps Surge Ahead Late, Lead 26-21 At Halftime

The Maryland Terrapins looked to be in the same kind of rut that they've often run into this season early in the first half against Virginia. The Cavaliers had more energy, and they took a 17-12 lead with just over seven minutes left in the half. From then on, though, the Terps dominated.

Maryland went on a 14-4 run to close the half, and they currently lead VIrginia 26-21 after one half in Charlottesville. The Terps are doing it despite Jordan Williams struggling. The big man is just 1-3 from the field and has two points, but a lot of the guards have picked up the slack. Terrell Stoglin leads the team with seven points, and Cliff Tucker, Adrian Bowie and Pe'Shon Howard have also given the Terps quality minutes.

Jontel Evans leads Virginia with six points. Assane Sene has just three points, but he already has 10 rebounds, continuing a trend of opposing big men dominating the Terps on the glass. However, the Cavaliers are shooting just 35 percent from the field.
