Last night at Comcast Center:

BY THE NUMBERS

8 Shots Mount St. Mary’s missed to open the game, including four straight air balls.

9 3-pointers the Terps made in the first half. Maryland made nine of 17 3-pointers in the first 20 minutes and led 55-24 at halftime.

WHAT DEFENSE?

After Maryland guard Mike Jones hit three straight 3s in less than two minutes to open the game, Mount St. Mary’s coach Milan Brown called his first timeout. What he didn’t do was switch his strategy. Brown opened the game in a 2-3 halfcourt zone and stayed in it after his quick timeout. Jones responded with his fourth straight 3-pointer 40 seconds later and his fifth two minutes after that.

SPOT ON THE FLOOR

Mike Jones made all six of his first-half 3s from the left side of the arc. The 6-foot-5 senior preferred the top of the key — shading left to the wing — anywhere from 20 to 23 feet.
