Maryland 85, Boston U. 59
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) _ Matt Roe scored 10 of his 19 points during the decisive first half, and Maryland, using two 12-0 runs, pulled away from Boston University en route to an 85-59 victory Tuesday night.
Maryland (10-7) took advantage of 12 Terrier turnovers in building a 41-26 halftime lead, then opened the second half with a 12-0 spurt that turned the game into a rout.
Cedric Lewis had 15 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks for the Terrapins, who led by as many as 30 points in improving to 7-2 at home and 9-3 outside the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Reggie Stewart led the Terriers (6-10) with 30 points, matching his career high, but he had only four baskets in the second half.
Stewart kept his team in the game in the early going by scoring the Terriers’ first 14 points and 16 of their first 19. Then Maryland started to pull away, with Matt Downing scored six points in a 12-0 run that made it 33-19 with 6:46 left in the half.
By halftime, Stewart had 20 of the Terriers’ 26 points and had converted seven of 12 shots while his teammates were missing nine of 10. That lone basket - a 3-pointer by Sotiris Manolopoulos - came off an assist by Stewart.
Stewart ended Maryland’s 12-0 burst in the second half with a 3-pointer with 16:55 left, but by that time the Terriers were well out of contention.
