Three points at a time, Maryland turned a halftime deficit against last-place Virginia Tech into the foundation of a blowout victory.
If the teams don't meet in the ACC tournament, Maryland will head to the Big Ten after this season with a five-game winning streak against the Hokies and a 32-10 lead in the series.
All night long, with No. 14 Virginia trailing Virginia Tech, Justin Anderson kept thinking the Cavaliers were about to take control. Then instead, the Hokies would make a run.
Virginia Tech rang in the new year by getting its bell rung. Maryland jumped out to a 13-4 lead in the opening minutes and never trailed, drilling Virginia Tech 94-71 on Saturday at a sold-out Comcast Center.
"They denied the ball a little more," van Zegeren said. "They put pressure on us and we turned the ball over. We have to take care of the ball better."
"We played with heart. We came out with fight," Van Zegeren said. "We were well prepared. We were mentally very well prepared. I think everybody was focused to win this game. If we bring that to every game, it will help us a lot."
