Ex-Xavier guard Dez Wells had 19 points, former Michigan swingman Evan Smotrycz scored 15 and Charles Mitchell added 12 points and 11 rebounds for Maryland, which had won four in a row after losing two of its first three.
Aaron Craft is one of the nation's best defenders. How will Maryland's point guards combat the pressure on Wednesday night?
It will be the team's first true road game of the year and a preliminary taste of what next season's conference slate in the Big Ten will be like.

A day after Bruce Weber criticized his own performance and his own players following a loss at home to Purdue, the Illinois coach tried to soften the blow.
Indiana did it again. Three weeks after upsetting No. 1 Kentucky, the Hoosiers took down No. 2 Ohio State.
Lenzelle Smith Jr. then hit two foul shots with 12.7 seconds left and Aaron Craft added two more to seal the outcome for the Buckeyes (13-3, 2-2).
"There was a lot of finger-pointing going around. There was some adversity; we weren't playing as well as we thought we should be," point guard Aaron Craft said. "There were guys just not taking responsibility for their actions, and he tried to kick us out. I think we did a good job of fighting back.
