The Maryland Terrapins continued their roll Tuesday night against the Miami (FL) Hurricanes. This game, ending 81-59, wasn’t close from the start.
Maryland got off to an early lead while Miami struggled to hang on to the ball. The Terps were led by Greivis Vasquez who, for the fourth game in a row, played under control. Vasquez did score 16 points, but he distributed the ball dishing out nine assists to add to the Terrapins dominant performance.
One of the beneficiaries of Vasquez’s solid play was Jordan Williams. Williams has been fun to watch so far. He’s a physical player that has been providing the Terps with an inside presence that has been missing for the past few years. Williams only scored eight, but was solid on the glass, getting six rebounds.
Eric Hayes, Sean Mosley and Landon Milbourne also were all in double figures to head the Terrapins balanced attack. If the seniors on this team, Vasquez, Hayes and Milbourne, can keep up this momentum, Maryland can be a very dangerous squad going forward in the ACC and, possibly, the NCAAs.
Next for Maryland is a tough game at Clemson. It’s a definite possibility that the Terps could win in Clemson which would set them up nicely for the rest of the ACC season.
