Maryland Vs. Virginia: Adrian Bowie Leads Terps To Blowout 66-42 Win

The Maryland Terrapins got their biggest win on the road against Virginia in 77 years, and they did it without star Jordan Williams making a huge contribution. Williams had just four points and six rebounds, but others picked up the slack and the defense was stifling. Maryland ended up winning going away, defeating the Cavaliers 66-42.

The Terps are now 13-7 and 3-3 in the ACC. Virginia falls to 11-9 and 2-4 in league play. 

Adrian Bowie led the way for the Terps, singlehandily putting the game out of reach. He had 22 points in the game, 15 of which came in the second half. He even hit three of his five three-pointers, despite shooting just 34 percent from three-point range coming into the game. Cliff Tucker and Pe'Shon Howard also provided a lift off the bench, scoring 13 and nine, respectively.

Really, though, it was Maryland's defense that won the game. They held Virginia to 33 percent shooting, and didn't allow a single Virginia player to score in double figures. Joe Harris and Mustapha Farrakhan had eight points each, but they shot a combined 6-18 from the field. Assane Sene finished with five points and 15 rebounds, but there were also a lot of missed shots to be had.

Maryland next plays on Sunday against Georgia Tech on the road at 7:45 p.m.
