Miami 3-0 in ACC after beating Maryland 54-47
Question of the Day
“I was just being relentless, not quitting on the play and putting pressure on the rim,” Gamble said.
Maryland got to within 39-34 with 4 minutes remaining on Wells‘ layup and Logan Aronhalt’s 3-pointer.
Len’s dunk with 2:20 remaining got the Terrapins within 43-38, but McKinney Jones’ corner 3-pointer with 1:40 left stretched Miami’s lead to 46-38.
Kadji hit consecutive 3-pointers early in the game as the Hurricanes opened to a 12-5 lead in the first 8:21. Miami maintained the advantage, forcing seven Terrapins turnovers in the first 10 minutes.
Maryland didn’t reach double figures in points until Nick Faust’s layup with 6:23 remaining in the first half reduced Miami’s lead to 16-11.
Miami failed to take advantage of the Terrapins’ shooting woes. The Hurricanes were held scoreless the rest of the half — missing their final eight shots — after McKinney Jones’ 3-pointer with 4:36 remaining gave Miami a 19-11 lead.
“On any given night you’re going to have bad shooting,” Larkin said. “Tonight we focused on defense. It’s frustrating not making shots, but you can’t let that affect you.”
Len’s basket with 3.8 seconds remaining ended a field goal drought of 6:20 for Maryland. The Terrapins shot 21.4 percent (6 of 28) in the first half.
“It’s hard for us to score right now,” Turgeon said. “Our decision-making has to get better.”
