March 21, 2010|By Sports Digest

Maryland's Hudson Taylor defeated Trevor Brandvold of Wisconsin and lost to Cam Simaz of Cornell to finish fourth at the NCAA Wrestling Championships in Omaha, Neb. Taylor dominated his match with Brandvold, whom he had lost to earlier this season, nearly pinning him in the first period and going on to capture a 10-0 major decision. He then took Simaz to sudden-death overtime after they wrestled to a 2-2 tie in regulation. Simaz recorded a quick takedown in overtime, giving him a 4-2 win. Taylor finished his senior season 42-4 and ended his Maryland career with a 165-28 record, the most wins in school history. Cal Poly's Borislav Novachkov pinned the Terps' Steven Bell 4 minutes, 26 seconds into the seventh-place match. As a team, Maryland finished 20th with 29.5 points.

Women's basketball: Maryland will host East Carolina at noon today at Comcast Center in the second round of the Women's National Invitation Tournament.
