Last night at Comcast Center:


26 The margin of Maryland’s halftime lead (43-17) — its largest since taking a 52-19 lead into the break last Dec. 28 against Liberty. Maryland won that game 112-68.


Center Paulius Joneliunas was harshly welcomed in his first game at American. The transfer from South Carolina took a jumper with 13:30 left in the first half, only to have Maryland forward Nik Caner-Medley soar in from the right and swat it off the court.


“Dou-ble dig-its.”

—Short-lived chant when American scored its 10th point with 4:39 left in the first half. It was the first basket in more than five minutes for the Eagles, who trailed 28-10.
