Holmes scores 25, Morgan St stuns Maryland 66-65
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP)—Reggie Holmes scored 25 points, and Morgan State rallied from a 14-point deficit in the final 12 minutes to shock Maryland 66-65 Wednesday night, ending the Terrapins’ seven-game winning streak.
The Bears (6-8), a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference team based in Baltimore, were 0-5 against the Terrapins (11-3) in a series that began in 1988.
A 3-pointer by Jermaine Bolden completed a 21-5 run that put the Bears up 61-59 with 2:15 left. After Greivis Vasquez made two free throws for Maryland, Holmes scored on a tip-in to put Morgan State back in front.
Dave Neal tied it at 63 with two foul shots, and after Holmes buried another 3, Landon Milbourne made a basket for Maryland and was fouled with 29.8 seconds left. He missed the free throw, and the Terrapins subsequently misfired on several opportunities.
Vasquez led Maryland with 19 points.
