Despite a run to cut the Terrapins' lead to six with just over two minutes remaining in regulation, Maryland was able to hold on to their slim lead and get the win over the North Carolina Wilmington Seahawks, 71-62.
The Terrapins struggled with ball security, committing 13 turnovers to only 7 assists. The difference in the game was Maryland's ability to get to the foul line, as they shot over two times as many free throws as the Seahawks.
Though the Terrapins shot a torrid 48 percent from the field, they were a horrid 0-for-9 from 3-point range. The Seahawks hit six 3-pointers, five of which were by Adam Smith, who led the game in scoring with 23 points. No other player reached double digits for the Seahawks.
With the win, the Terrapins move to 1-0 on the season. The loss drops the Seahawks to 0-1. For more coverage of Maryland Terrapin basketball, come out of your shell to SB Nation DC.
