Sixty-one years of heated rivalries, heartbreaking defeats and unforgettable victories will come to an end Sunday for Maryland when the Terrapins play their final home game as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Clemson's Damarcus Harrison knew coming in he'd have to make an important shot. He just didn't think he'd have to wait nearly 49 minutes to do it.
Seth Allen had 20 points to lead Maryland (15-14, 7-9). Allen's final basket gave the Terrapins a 71-70 lead with 1:27 to go.
Dez Wells drilled the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 5.9 seconds left to provide Maryland with a 74-71 victory over Miami on Wednesday night.
Dez Wells hadn't missed a shot all night, and with the game tied and the clock winding down, Maryland's leading scorer had no intention of finally clanging one off the rim.
This is the Terrapins' final season in the ACC, and they intend to make it memorable. To do so they must play hard and with some consistency, objectives they hope to accomplish Wednesday night at home against Notre Dame (10-6, 1-2).
Two months ago, Maryland basketball coach Mark Turgeon thought he had a team capable of reaching the NCAA tournament.
Nick Faust scored 16 points, and Maryland launched the home portion of its final trip through the Atlantic Coast Conference by defeating Georgia Tech 77-61 Saturday.
In their 77-61 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday, the Terrapins had four players score in double figures. They had 16 assists compared with only six turnovers, and nine players received significant playing time.
The BB&T Classic lived up to its name as George Washington's Maurice Creek sank a buzzer-beater to knock off Maryland on Sunday afternoon.
Rattling the Colonials with a strong press, the Terps (5-4) used a 19-2 run to tie the game with a minute left, forcing George Washington to turn it over eight times down the stretch.
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.
Evan Smotrycz is used to playing Ohio State from his days at Michigan. Can he help Maryland as they prepare for a road showdown against the Buckeyes?
Dez Wells split a pair of Providence defenders for a running hook shot with 1:04 left and added a pair of clutch free throws as Maryland held off a furious comeback attempt by the Friars, 56-52, to claim the 2013 Paradise Jam tournament championship Monday night.
Nick Faust scored five straight points on a layup and 3-pointer to bring the Terps within two with 2:28 left. Faust led the Terps with 17 points. Wells, Evan Smotrycz and Jake Layman all scored 13.
"It's pretty cool," junior forward Evan Smotrycz said. "There's lot of history with Maryland in the ACC, and hopefully we can finish it off the right way."
"If we could beat them the last home ACC game that would be huge," Smotrycz said.
