Last night at Leon County Civic Center in Tallahassee, Fla.:

BY THE NUMBERS

63.8 Combined shooting percentage for Maryland and Florida State in the first half (37-for-58). The torrid shooting on both sides produced a combined 95 points, a seemingly unsustainable pace even if neither team was displaying much interest at the defensive end.

0-5 Record for Maryland when trailing at halftime this season. All five games have come in conference play, including all four of the Terrapins’ road games.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Al Thornton’s dazzling performance crescendoed during Florida State’s early second-half spurt. Perhaps the most demoralizing moment of the stretch came when Thornton batted a ball away from Greivis Vasquez near midcourt, picked it up and raced to the basket for a dunk to put the Seminoles up 70-54.
