Vasquez leads Maryland over Youngstown State
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP)—Greivis Vasquez matched his career high with 28 points, and Maryland used a strong defensive performance to cruise past Youngstown State 73-49 Tuesday night.
The Terrapins (2-0) allowed one basket in the final eight minutes before halftime, turning a one-point lead into a 37-18 cushion. Vasquez scored 12 points during that span.
Vasquez went 10-for-17 from the floor and 7-for-7 at the foul line. He also led Maryland with eight rebounds and four assists. The junior guard is 48 points short of 1,000 for his career.
It was the 399th career victory at Maryland for coach Gary Williams, compared to 215 losses in 20 seasons at his alma mater.
Jack Liles had 12 points and eight rebounds for Youngstown State (0-2), which was coming off a home loss to Buffalo.
