Nick Faust recorded his first career double-double as the Terps blew out the Niagara Purple Eagles 86-70 in their first round game of the National Invitational Tournament.
Faust was all over the place with 15 points and 11 rebounds. He also got help from senior guard Logan Aronhalt and freshman Seth Allen who both had 15 points.
Dez Wells added 12 points for the hot-shooting Terps.
In a game that started slowly and was tied at halftime, Maryland’s size and depth appeared to wear down Niagara in the second half.
Maryland will host either Denver or Ohio Thursday night.
