Last night at Comcast Center


Before pregame introductions, the video screen showed a fan with a sign reading “NCAA Soccer Champs” before Maryland’s 1-0 defeat of New Mexico in yesterday’s College Cup final was announced, prompting a roar from the crowd. It was the Terrapins’ first men’s soccer title since 1968.

The result couldn’t have been a surprise to those arriving early. More than an hour before tip-off, fans were treated to a replay of the championship game.


The Terps electrified the crowd with their early pressure, and some of their most impressive baskets came off turnovers. With Boston College within 26-24, Parrish Brown came up with possession and ran to near the baseline. He then tossed a pass back to the trailing Nik Caner-Medley, who finished with a left-handed slam.


6 Consecutive field goals made to start the game for Maryland forward Ekene Ibekwe. The junior scored a team-high 15 points in the first half.
