After Maryland’s rout of Delaware State, I offered up a fairly quirky stat on how Landon Milbourne had just led the Terrapins in scoring in consecutive games.

Well, he went ahead and did it again last night, sharing leading scorer honors with Dave Neal in a defeat of American. So that meant another journey into the record books.

Turns out Milbourne is just the 13th Terp in the last 10+ seasons to do that. The company gets even rarer should he pace Maryland in points again Saturday; only seven Terps have led the team in scoring four straight games since the start of the 1998-99 season.

That’s a chart for another day; Saturday, to be precise, should Milbourne keep up his recent work. But here is the rundown of streaks of three or more consecutive games of leading Maryland in scoring since Steve Francis arrived on campus.
