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.
Mark Turgeon said D-III transfer Varun Ram is Maryland's "most complete point guard." Surprising? It probably shouldn't be. Details here.
Five weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured bone in his foot, sophomore Seth Allen is on track and doing well, coach Mark Turgeon said. Updates here.
What says "college basketball" more than a milkshake contest between local coaches? Nothing, probably. That's why Mike Lonergan, Paul Hewitt, and Mark Turgeon are joining forces.
Mark Turgeon said that freshman point guard Roddy Peters would have to "play through mistakes" this season. Wednesday night against Ohio State was a prime example.
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.
Mark Turgeon was out recruiting when he found out his team would play road games in consecutive ACC/Big Ten Challenges. He didn't take the news too kindly.
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. Maryland has played neutral-site games against Connecticut and a three-game stretch in the Virgin Islands for Paradise Jam, but the trip to Columbus will be different.
After being arrested for DUI last month, Maryland assistant Dalonte Hill has resigned. Head coach Mark Turgeon spoke about it on Wednesday.
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.
Coach Mark Turgeon says defense is at the root of Maryland's problems here in the early part of the season and that the "walk in the park" they're giving opponents needs to end.
Back in August, Maryland took a trip to the Caribbean as part of a preseason tune-up. Now with a 1-2 record, this upcoming trip is "totally different," coach Mark Turgeon says.
Point guard play became a real problem for the Maryland Terrapins last season, and many fans hoped freshman Roddy Peters could be the answer this season.
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.
"This year people have been pressuring me about filling in for Alex, but I'm really not that pressured," Cleare said. "I'm just going to come in this year and do what I got to do: rebound, run the floor, jump shots, screens -- do anything to get the win at the end of the game."
Now with a 1-2 record, this upcoming trip is "totally different," coach Mark Turgeon says.
"This would have been a great win for us because I think Connecticut is going to win a lot of games," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said.
