Last night at Comcast Center

NUMBERS OF NOTE

142 Career ACC victories for Maryland’s Gary Williams, who is tied with former North Carolina and South Carolina coach Frank McGuire for third all time. Williams trails only Dean Smith (264) and Mike Krzyzewski (255).

PLAY OF THE GAME

Center Will Bowers quietly had a fine night, including some deft passing. Bowers received a pass just outside the lane then slipped it into the post to Nik Caner-Medley, who made a layup and the ensuing free throw to put Maryland up 64-51 with 8:48 left.

QUOTABLE

“It was lovely. You saw how good it was. I got two early fouls. I was so anxious I got two fouls.”

— Maryland forward Travis Garrison, joking about his return from a one-game suspension because of misdemeanor assault and sex offense charges. Garrison scored one point in 10 foul-plagued minutes after missing last Sunday’s victory over Wake Forest.
