“I just don’t want people to think we’re this great team because we’re not yet,” Turgeon said. “We have a chance to be.”

NOTES: Maryland is 1-0 all-time against South Carolina State, a 104-70 victory in 1998-99.

Guard Pe’Shon Howard played only nine minutes Wednesday. Turgeon said the junior said his stomach hurt early in the second half, and his absence allowed Maryland to use Nick Faust extensively at point guard.
