Morehead State vs Maryland

Maryland 67, Morehead St. 45

  •  

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Nick Faust scored 12 points, Alex Len had 11, and Maryland plodded past Morehead State 67-45 Monday night.

The Terrapins (1-1) seemed to lack the same intensity they showed in a narrow season-opening loss to defending NCAA champion Kentucky. But Maryland still had enough talent, height and depth to beat the cold-shooting Eagles (1-1).

The Terrapins finished with a 40-32 rebounding advantage and outscored Morehead State 17-6 at the foul line. James Padgett scored nine points, and Dez Wells and Shaquille Cleare had eight apiece for Maryland.

Milton Chavis scored 10 for Morehead State. The Eagles, of the Ohio Valley Conference, shot 32 percent from the floor, went 1 for 14 from beyond the arc and led only once - at 3-2.

After letting a 16-point halftime lead dwindle to 10 with 13 minutes left, Maryland used an 11-1 run to pull away. Len started the surge with a drive, Padgett followed with successive layups and Seth Allen scored on a breakaway before Logan Aronhalt hit a 3-pointer from the right side.

Maryland went 16 for 22 at the foul line and limited Morehead State to 28 percent shooting - 1 for 10 from 3-point range - in taking a 35-19 halftime lead. For the Terrapins, it marked a dramatic change from their first-half performance against Kentucky, when they trailed 49-36 after allowing the Wildcats to shoot 58 percent.

In this one, the Eagles missed 15 of their first 17 shots and scored only seven points in the first 10 minutes. Still, Maryland led by only 18-11 before Faust made two free throws and Dez Wells scored on a drive to spark a 10-2 run that made it 28-13.
