NO `D' IN MARYLAND
After holding Virginia to 11-for-30 shooting in the first half, the Terps allowed the Cavaliers to hit 20 of 32 shots after halftime. Many of them came on second-chance baskets and uncontested dunks. Virginia was the first team in 44 games to shoot better than 50 percent against Maryland.
BOWIE COMING ON
Freshman Adrian Bowie scored a career-high 15 points in 20 minutes for the Terps, following his 6-for-6 shooting performance against Clemson by making six of eight last night. Despite Bowie's effort, Maryland's bench was outscored 47-25.
The Terps play Boston College in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, the last of four opening-round games Thursday at Charlotte (N.C.) Bobcats Arena. If Maryland wins, the Terps will meet third seed Clemson in the last quarterfinal game Friday night.
