Terps Scramble to Beat Wolfpack: Big Maryland Lead Vanishes at Finish


Seifert, Kevin, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


RALEIGH, N.C. - No one said that playing in the ACC is easy.

Maryland held off a furious N.C. State rally and defended against a wild scramble under the State basket as time expired and held on for an 86-84 victory at Reynolds Coliseum.

Maryland had jumped out to as much as a 20-point second-half lead in which they could do little wrong. The Terps started the second half with a 21-10 run and took a 64-46 lead at the 12:55 mark.
