The Maryland Terrapins defeated Boston College 81-65 Thursday night at Comcast Center. The Terps were led by ACC scoring-leader Terrell Stoglin, who finished with 24 points. Stoglin was incredible in the first half, hitting five threes, which including a stretch of three in a row on consecutive possessions. He had a quiet second half, scoring only five points but his work in the first half put Maryland ahead for good. The Terps had a comfortable double-digit lead for nearly the entire game but BC did cut it to seven points in the final five minutes of the game.
In addition to Stoglin, both freshman Nick Faust and senior Sean Mosley scored double figures as part of a backcourt trio that dominated the Eagles. Faust added 14 points while Mosley finished with 13. On the interior, James Padgett had a big game for Mark Turgeon, grabbing eight board and chipping in 15 points. As a team, the Terps hit 50 percent from the floor and 50 percent from behind the arc in what was one of their best and most efficient offensive games this conference season.
At 5-6 in the conference, the Terps now travel to Charlottesville to face Virginia on Saturday and look to pull even to .500 in the ACC.
