Well, that was expected. In the midst of ACC season, the Longwood Lancers came in to Comcast Center, and I imagine they can’t have taken anything from the experience (except that they’re not a very good D-1 team), as the Terps demolished them, 106-52.
Sean Mosley led all scorers with 20 points, adding five rebounds and three steals, Terrell Stoglin scored 15 with four assists, Dino Gregory scored 14 points with 11 rebounds, and Hawk Palsson had a career-high 13 points with four rebounds and four assists.
Jordan Williams got in foul trouble early, causing people to wonder jokingly on Twitter if he was trying to foul out on purpose in order to avoid playing in the game. Williams finished with nine points and 11 rebounds in 21 minutes of action against a Longwood team that had absolutely no height.
Pe’Shon Howard got the start at point guard again, and ran the show, scoring 11 points with six assists. Adrian Bowie scored ten points with six assists, rounding out the Terps in double-digits on the night.
Maryland took the opportunity to try and work on their three-point shot, with moderate success. The Terps made 10-27 attempts from long range, led by two-of-three from the Hawk.
Gary Williams passed John Wooden on the all-time wins list in a game that was one of the most dominant in his long career, and against one of the worst teams that he has faced in his career.
Maryland’s next two games are on the road against ACC opponents – February 12 at BC and February 15 at VT – before heading back home to face NC State (and honor Greivis Vasquez) on February 20.
