Maryland beats No. 5 Virginia in ACC finale 75-69
Question of the Day
“Our guys were down. I was down,” Turgeon said. “I said, ‘Let’s make this the best five minutes of the year.’ They didn’t believe me the first time I said it. But I said it 15 times during the timeout.”
Overtime began with Allen making two straight layups for a 68-64 lead. The guard then blocked a shot before adding a free throw.
The Cavaliers used a layup by Gill to close to 71-69 with 1:13 left, but they would not score again. Despite the loss, Virginia will head into the ACC tournament as a top seed for only the second time.
“I feel like we just need to get back in practice and just get back to what we know - and that’s defense and not letting people penetrate,” Gill said.
Maryland opened the second half with an 11-2 run, turning a one-point deficit into a 45-37 lead.
After Wells made two free throws, Perrantes answered with a foul-line jumper. Wells then made a basket and added two foul shots before Allen popped a 3-pointer and Shaquille Cleare added a layup.
The teams combined for only two field goals over the next 5 minutes, but Virginia made five free throws during that span to close to 47-44 with 11:34 left.
Minutes later, Joe Harris hit a 3-pointer to end a 6-0 spree that put the Cavaliers in front 52-51 with 8:30 to play. Maryland went ahead 62-58 with 2:39 remaining but could not make the lead stand up.
Perrantes scored 12 first-half points on four 3-pointers, including one in the closing seconds that put the Cavaliers ahead 35-34.
As an expression of gratitude to the lone senior on the squad, Turgeon started seldom-used forward John Auslander, who missed his only shot before being replaced with just under 4 minutes elapsed.
