COLLEGE PARK, Md. – - In their last game before ACC season really starts, the Maryland Terrapins blew out the Colgate Raiders nearly flawlessly, 95-40.
Jordan Williams had his eighth straight double-double, with 12 points and 11 rebounds, four short of Len Elmore’s school record. Adrian Bowie led all scorers with 16 points, and Terrell Stoglin, Cliff Tucker, and Dino Gregory each added 12.
It was Stoglin’s first career collegiate start, as he replaced Pe’Shon Howard in the starting lineup (who replaced Tucker not long ago). Stoglin hit three of five three pointers and had four assists.
Haukur Palsson had arguably his best showing of the season, hitting a three pointer and scoring seven points, including a play that left him sidelined for the rest of the game after suffering a gash down the right side of his face. Mychal Parker played a large part of the game, as well, and showed off his athleticism; he was on the receiving end of a Stoglin alley-oop.
Colgate (1-12) was dreadful from the floor, shooting 26.2% on the night. The Raiders actually held the first lead of the game after a Pat Moore basket, but missed their next 15 shots and were out of the game from that point on.
Maryland’s next game is Sunday, January 9 at Duke. I’m already nervous.
