This marked the third time in the past six games that Maryland blew a double-digit lead. Losing the 15-point advantage might not have been as bad as the 20-point collapse against Clemson at Comcast Center on March 2, but it was worse than losing the 11-point lead to Virginia Tech on Feb. 20.
A SPLIT AT BOBCATS ARENA
It's doubtful Maryland will return to this venue. The Atlantic Coast Conference tournament isn't coming back because the arena doesn't have enough seats to satisfy the league's 12 teams. That leaves the Terps 1-1 in the building.
NO HELP INSIDE
Aside from James Gist, who finished with 19 points, the Terps got little going offensively from their big men. Senior center Bambale Osby had only five points, and Jerome Burney, Dave Neal and Shane Walker went scoreless off the bench in 15 minutes.
The Terps will likely play a first-round National Invitation Tournament game against an undetermined opponent at Comcast Center on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Depending on how the tickets are distributed, there will either be plenty of good seats or plenty of empty ones.
