A Turgeon team takes a rare trip to 100-point territory

← return to D1SCOURSE

Maryland reached 100 points for the first time since February 2011 when it steamrolled Maryland-Eastern Shore 100-68 on Wednesday.

It was the first time the Terrapins’ coach had been there in even longer.

Mark Turgeon’s last team to reach the 100-point milestone was his first Texas A&M bunch, and it did so in memorable fashion – a 116-110 quintuple-overtime loss to Baylor on Jan. 23, 2008.

Indeed, Turgeon has coached 449 career games between stops at Jacksonville State, Wichita State, Texas A&M and Maryland. Wednesday was only the sixth time one of his teams hit triple digits:




Nov. 28, 2001: Wichita State 102, Texas-Arlington 89
Dec. 21, 2001: Wichita State 102, Western Carolina 73
Dec. 17, 2006: Wichita State 102, Maryland-Eastern Shore 46


Dec. 8, 2007: Texas A&M 109, Texas State 73
Jan. 23, 2008:
Baylor 116, Texas A&M 110 (5OT)


Dec. 5, 2012: Maryland 100, Maryland-Eastern Shore 68
