Maryland 76, Elon 57
Jordan Williams had 24 points and 13 rebounds, Adrian Bowie
scored 14, and Maryland bounced back from a miserable first half to
beat Elon 76-57 Friday night.
The Terrapins (5-2) trailed by 11 points with 10 minutes elapsed
before closing to 34-31 at halftime. Maryland’s only lead before
intermission was 1-0.
The momentum turned when the Terrapins opened the second half
with a 9-3 run to take a 40-37 lead. After Roger Dugas scored on a
drive for Elon (2-3), Bowie drilled a 3-pointer and Williams added
a dunk and a follow to put Maryland up 47-39 with 12:37 left.
Bowie capped the 10-0 run with a three-point play, giving the
Terrapins their first double-digit lead.
It was 54-47 before Williams made a three-point play to spark a
12-0 spurt that put Maryland up by 19 with 4:53 to go.
Jordan scored 20 points in the second half on 8-for-10 shooting
and recorded his fifth double-double in seven games.
Jack Isenbarger led Elon with 23 points and Dugas had 13. The
Phoenix shot only 33 percent from the field and went 9 for 33 from
beyond the arc.
Elon, which lost by 19 to Wake Forest last week, is 34-123
against current members of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Isenbarger scored nine points and Dugas had eight to stake Elon
to a 20-9 lead. Milking most of the 35-second clock on virtually
every possession, the Phoenix made eight of their first 14 shots,
including four 3-pointers.
It was 31-24 before Maryland freshman Terrell Stoglin connected
from beyond the arc and Bowie added two free throws to get the
Terps to 31-29. After Dugas hit a 3-pointer, Bowie scored on a
follow just before the half.
