Yesterday at Comcast Center

BY THE NUMBERS

2 Times in the last five seasons Maryland has knocked off the final undefeated team in college basketball. The Terrapins also upended Duke in 2003 to end the Blue Devils’ perfect start.

QUOTABLE

“He told me I’m a tough guy, and he’s a tough referee. I know him. He’s pretty cool and he’s a nice referee. It was a close game and I was too excited. Sometimes I have to calm down.”

— Excitable guard Greivis Vasquez on a discussion with official Ted Valentine, which ended with a handshake. Vasquez scored 10 points despite stumbling into second-half foul trouble.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Maryland coach Gary Williams burned a timeout after Clemson closed to within 54-48, and the play he drew up worked perfectly. Mike Jones took the inbound pass and hit a 3-pointer to halt the Tigers’ mini-run. Clemson never pulled any closer than five points.

— Patrick Stevens
