DURHAM, N.C. —- If ever a season could be summed up in a play, Maryland found a way to make it happen.

The Terps were going to get one last chance to try to rally from a 17-13 deficit, but Tony Logan fumbled a punt while trying to get a running start, handing the ball back to Duke with less than two minutes to go.


That would pretty much be game-set-match for Maryland this season.

The Terps had a +3 turnover margin, but had an interception and fumble in the final 4:09. And that meant no rally, and tumbling to 2-6 (1-3 in the ACC).

More to come from postgame, but here’s guessing we’ll hear the same old, same old about turnovers proving to be a killer. They weren’t the only reason the Terps lost, but it is the reason Maryland didn’t have a chance to come back.
