Layman scored Maryland’s first five points, then jammed in a teammate’s miss to make it 13-4.
“For some reason we can’t come out and smack someone in the mouth,” Green said. “We get smacked in the mouth first.”
Said Allen: “The first four minutes of a basketball game really shows who’s going to come out victorious. We really hit them in the mouth early, and that’s kind of what got us going.”
Virginia Tech got to 58-43 early in the second half before Maryland’s Logan Aronhalt hit a 3-pointer and Allen scored in the lane for a 20-point cushion. It was 69-58 with 9:55 left before the Terrapins pulled away.
Faust played only five minutes in the first half before leaving with back spasms. Turgeon hopes to have him back Wednesday, when Maryland seeks to keep its win streak alive in a home matchup with Florida State.
