Maryland 81, Boston College 65
Terrell Stoglin scored 19 of his 24 points in the decisive first
half, and Maryland cruised to an 81-65 victory over struggling
Boston College on Thursday night.
Stoglin went 7 for 10 from the field before halftime and put the
Terrapins in front for good by scoring 14 consecutive points over a
three-minute span. The Atlantic Coast Conference scoring leader
finished 5 for 8 from beyond the arc in his 18th game with at least
Stoglin has 68 3-pointers this season, breaking the school
record for a sophomore (Greivis Vasquez had 64 in 2007-08).
Maryland (15-10, 5-6) led by 19 with 13 minutes elapsed and
41-27 at halftime. After Boston College scored the first six points
of the second half, three-point plays by Nick Faust and James
Padgett ignited a 9-2 spree that made it 50-35.
The Eagles (8-18, 3-9) closed to 63-56 with three minutes left
but could not complete the comeback.
Padgett scored 15, Faust had 14 and Sean Mosley added 13 to help
Maryland notch its most lopsided win of the season
Freshman Ryan Anderson led Boston College with a career-high 22
points and Lonnie Jackson had 19. The Eagles have lost eight of
nine and remain the only team in the ACC without a road win
Anderson scored BC’s first five points as the Eagles built a
10-4 lead. Stoglin then connected from long range, followed with a
jumper in the lane and tacked on three straight 3-pointers to
complete a very personal 14-0 run.
After Dennis Clifford made two foul shots for Boston College,
the Terrapins resumed their long-range barrage. Faust, Mychal
Parker and Mosley all drilled 3s, and a layup by Faust made it
29-12. At that point, Maryland was 11 for 15 from the field,
including 6 for 8 beyond the arc.
It was 33-14 before Boston College got a pair of 3s from Jackson
in an 8-0 burst. Mosley stemmed the surge by scoring in the lane
and Stoglin added a layup.
