Seth Allen’s late free throws give Maryland upset over No. 2 Duke
Question of the Day
With Duke down three with 16 seconds left, Maryland guard-forward Jake Layman fouled Rasheed Sulaimon on a 3-point attempt. The freshman made all three from the line to tie the score at 81.
That set the stage for Allen to clinch the win and boost Maryland’s NCAA tournament hopes a week after a crippling home loss to Virginia — circumstances that had Turgeon in tears of pride during his postgame news conference.
As senior forward James Padgett said, “We can hopefully use it as a momentum builder going into the last couple games in the ACC. Everyone is excited, but we’re not content.”
Although it is conceivable Maryland could host Duke next year, during the Terps’ final ACC season before they bolt to the Big Ten, the teams are losing their automatic home-and-home series upon the entrance of Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the conference.
That means it’s up to the ACC to gift the ship-jumping Terps one last home date against Duke.
“I told our players before the game there is a lot of pride in Maryland basketball,” Turgeon said. “We talked about pride and passion, and playing with those two things tonight, for us and for our fans.”
