Terps close out Bahamas tour with win, another big game for Jake Layman

Maryland sophomore forward Jake Layman scored a team-high 25 points as the Terps closed out their foreign tour with an 88-77 win over the Grand Bahamas All-Stars this afternoon.

Layman, who averaged 21.3 points during the Terps’ three-game, undefeated exhibition tour of the Bahamas, went 5-for-8 from 3-point range in Friday’s win at the Sir Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium in Nassau.

Junior guard Nick Faust (City) was Maryland’s second-leading scorer with 20 points, while sophomore point guard Seth Allen added 15 points.

“We got better as the week went on,” Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said in a news release. “It was a great overall trip.  On the court, we defeated three teams away from home, faced a number of different situations, handled adversity well and had the opportunity to play every healthy player on our roster.”

Layman, Faust and Allen were joined in Maryland’s starting lineup by redshirt junior forward Evan Smotrycz and junior wing Dez Wells, who scored 10 points Friday after missing the Terps’ second game with a sore knee. Sophomore power forward Charles Mitchell scored 12 points off the bench.

The Terps will leave the Bahamas on Saturday afternoon. Maryland will have a few weeks off before beginning practice Sept. 3.

“We have been able to spend quality time and have a lot of fun together as a basketball family,” Turgeon said.
