Last night at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C.


18Turnovers committed by Maryland in the first half. The Terrapins had 28 field goal attempts and eight offensive rebounds, meaning they were nearly as likely to surrender possession as take a shot before the break.

6-29 Assist-to-turnover ratio for Maryland. The Terps had six players deliver one assist apiece.


J.J. Redick authored yet another absurd shot just before halftime, drilling a 25-footer while Maryland’s Chris McCray collided with him. Redick made the free throw for the four-point play as the Blue Devils bumped their lead over 20 for the first time.


Duke swingman DeMarcus Nelson, who returned from a broken right ankle Sunday, reinjured his right foot late in the first half. The sophomore, who had six points and four steals against Maryland, wore a walking boot on the Duke bench in the second half. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said it was in the same area as the old injury but could not provide any specifics.
