Yesterday from Comcast Center


17:36 Between turnovers in the second half for Maryland, which surrendered possession only six times in the first 39 minutes. Three of those turnovers came on charges.


Maryland’s final basket might have been its most exciting. Mike Jones passed from the right side to center Will Bowers. The 7-foot-1 center soared in from the wing and delivered a one-handed jam to give the Terps an 88-54 lead and send the fans who remained into a frenzy.


“We live in a metropolitan area. See, we’re not playing in Lawrence, Kansas. We’re playing in Washington, D.C., in the nation’s capital, so people have a lot of things to do with their time besides come to see us play Nicholls State.”

— Maryland coach Gary Williams on the crowd, which filled about two-thirds of Comcast Center’s capacity. Williams cited students’ Thanksgiving break, an NCAA tournament soccer game on campus and a Redskins game as reasons for the unusually sparse crowd.
