Senior night at Xfinity Center began for Maryland with little-used forward Ivan Bender kneeling at midcourt and proposing to his longtime girlfriend Friday.
It ended with coach Mark Turgeon wearing a towel around his neck to his postgame news conference in honor of his team’s other senior, former walk-on Andrew Terrell.
In between, junior guard Anthony Cowan Jr. and freshman forward Jalen Smith helped the No. 24 Terps end their two-game losing streak with a 69-60 win over Minnesota.
Cowan, who played poorly in losses at Penn State and to then-No. 9 Michigan, came out his personal funk with a team-high 21 points and five assists.
