The Hokies, who started the year with just eight available scholarship players, also were without freshman forward Marshall Wood, who is out indefinitely with a broken left foot.

Tech did have some measure of success on the boards against the Terrapins, one of the nation’s top rebounding teams. Maryland only outrebounded the Hokies 41-38, with that margin coming from an 8-4 edge for the Terrapins in the first eight minutes.

Junior forward Cadarian Raines (Petersburg) led Tech with a career-high 13 rebounds.

Raines and van Zegeren combined to limit NBA prospect Alex Len to 16 points and nine rebounds.

But with a game plan geared to limiting Maryland in the paint, Tech got burned from the outside. And it led to another rout.
