COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Boston University got 25 points from D.J. Irving and displayed far more poise than Maryland down the stretch, surprising the Terrapins 83-77 Saturday to snap a three-game losing streak.
The Terriers (7-5) blew a 10-point halftime lead before using a 13-3 run to go up 70-61 with 3:44 left. Maryland (7-5) had no answer and ended up with its third defeat in five games.
Dom Morris scored 16 for BU, which was coming off a loss to Norfolk State and earlier lost to Eastern Washington and Harvard. In this one, however, the Terriers were up to the challenge against an Atlantic Coast Conference foe.
Dez Wells led Maryland with 18 points and Evan Smotrycz had 15 points and 13 rebounds. But the Terrapins committed 17 turnovers and went 15 for 26 at the line.
