Maryland Vs. Boston College: Terps Can't Overcome A Second Half Surge From BC As They Fall 76-72

Despite playing a competitive game, the Maryland Terrapins were unable overcome Reggie Jackson and the Boston College Eagles, as they fell 76-72.

Jackson looked unstoppable at times, dropping 31 points against the Terps. It also didn't help that the Eagles as a team hit 10 three pointers in the game, including Jackson's 4 three pointers.

Despite a balanced offensive attack, the Terps were still unable to pull out the W. Five different Terps players were in double figures, with Dino Gregory leading the way with 15 points. But it was the Terps defense that let them down. They were giving up many open three point opportunities, and BC gladly took advantage of each of them. All that led to a  disappointing road loss.

For the Terps, they were unable to get their sixth win in the conference, and as a result, sit 5-5 in the ACC, now a half game behind BC. They're NCAA hopes certainly took a hit after today's game, and they know that thing won't get any easier as they will travel to Virginia Tech to face the Hokies. Yes, the very same Hokies who handed the Terps their worst loss in the history of Comcast Center earlier this season.
