The Maryland Terrapins hold a five-point halftime lead over the visiting North Carolina Wilmington Seahawks in their season opener at the Comcast Center. Despite an early lead by the Seahawks, the Terrapins climbed back in with the help of bench player and second-year guard Terrell Stoglin. Stoglin had 14 points in the first half.
The Terps' slow start was due to their inability to hold on to the basketball and to hit from deep. Maryland turned the ball over nine times in the first 20 minutes while only totaling three assists. They also shot 0-for-5 from beyond the arc in the opening half, compared to their opponents' 4-of-10 shooting from downtown. They were, however, able to go to the foul line 14 times to the Seahawks four, hitting 10 of their 14 attempts.
Seahawk Adam Smith leads the game in scoring at the halfway point with 16 points and hitting 4-of-5 from 3-point range.
