Last night at Comcast Center

QUOTABLE

“The second half was nice, [but] that stuff’s for losers. You don’t get excited about coming back like that in the second half. The time to play is when the referee throws the ball up in the first half. We weren’t ready to play.”

— Maryland coach Gary Williams

SHOT OF THE GAME

N.C. State guard Engin Atsur’s 3-pointer with two seconds left on the shot clock gave the Wolfpack a 66-53 lead with 6:23 remaining and deflated Maryland’s comeback. Atsur sank another 3-pointer and a free throw in the next 49 seconds.

SEEN AND HEARD

THROW DOWN: Maryland forward Ekene Ibekwe and N.C. State forward Levi Watkins got in a shoving match with nine minutes remaining. Watkins was upset Ibekwe bumped him hard after a shot. Watkins was called for a foul, and Ibekwe converted one of two free throws.

BEST CHANT: Terps fans behind the Wolfpack bench chanted “Won’t get drafted” when N.C. State guard Julius Hodge went to the line with 4:46 remaining.

DUKE AT COLE: Maryland travels to Duke on Wednesday, but fans can watch at Cole Field House. The first 1,000 receive commemorative tickets. Maryland plays Duke at Comcast Center on Feb.12, and ESPN’s “College GameDay” will broadcast live.
