Terps Dunk Hokies
Following up the big home win against Miami, Maryland proved they could do it on the road with an easy 80-60 win in Blacksburg on Saturday. Dez Wells led the Terps with a game high 19 points off the bench.
Wells didn’t start against the Hokies in a minor disciplinary move, but was in the game in a matter of minutes. Wells kept up his solid shooting, going 6-for-9 from the floor and 7-for-8 from the line. Guard Seth Allen added 16 points and seven assists to lead the potent Maryland attack. Jake Layman and Nick Faust also ended up in double figures with ten points apiece. Center Shaquille Cleare returned to the starting lineup, but played only ten minutes.

Ben Emelogu was just about all Tech had offensively, the guard finishing with 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the floor. Emelogu was the only Hokie to finish in double figures in scoring.
The game was actually very close approaching intermission, but the Terps gained momentum with a pair of three pointers just before the break to lead 43-38. The second half was a blowout as Tech fell for the eight straight time. With four of their last five games of the season at home, Maryland (13-9, 5-4) is hoping to battle through a stretch of four of five on the road, to be in a position to be in contention for post season play down the stretch.
