It’s been a rocky road of late the Maryland Terrapins (16-5, 4-5 Atlantic Coast Conference). Saturday afternoon wasn’t one of those days though. The Terps got off to a fast start and carried it all the way to an 86-60 victory against overmatched Wake Forest (10-11, 3-6).
The offense produced six players in double figures, including 12 points from freshman Jake Layman. All of Layman’s points came from 3-point range.
This was the best game in a long while that Maryland has played and it showed with their point outburst. However, there were some issues that have been recurring.
The Terps turned the ball over 19 times. That’s entirely too many times and would have cost them against a better team.
Maryland also didn’t get to the foul line too much while also only sinking 55 percent (5-for-9). It’s a problem that probably won’t be fixed this season, but the schedule might just be softening up in time for Maryland to make a push to the NCAA Tournament.
