Vasquez leads Maryland over Charlotte 85-75
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP)—Greivis Vasquez scored 27 points and fueled a second-half surge that carried Maryland to its seventh straight victory, 85-75 over Charlotte on Saturday.
The Terrapins (11-2) trailed by 11 points in the first half, were down 3 at halftime and tied the game with 14:51 remaining before Vasquez drilled a 3-pointer to spark a 16-point run. The run gave Maryland a 65-49 advantage with 11:27 to go.
Vasquez went 8-for-19 from the floor, made four 3-pointers and sank all seven of his free throws. He fell one point short of matching his career high.
Landon Milbourne scored 10 of his 13 points in the second half and Maryland improved to 9-0 at home.
RaShad Coleman led Charlotte (5-7) with 21 points, but he made only two baskets after halftime. The 49ers, who came in with a four-game winning streak, were outscored 47-34 in the second half.
