Maryland 100, Md.-Eastern Shore 68

Associated Press  |  Last updated December 05, 2012
Logan Aronhalt scored 15 of his 17 points from beyond the arc, and Maryland breezed past winless Maryland-Eastern Shore 100-68 Wednesday night for its seventh straight victory. Charles Mitchell had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Terrapins (7-1), who had five players score in double figures. Alex Len contributed nine points, nine rebounds and two blocks in only 17 minutes. Playing the first of eight straight home games, Maryland improved 16-0 in this lopsided in-state series. The Terrapins shot 64 percent from the floor in building a 49-28 halftime lead. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon opened with a lineup that did not include usual starters Len, Pe'Shon Howard and Nick Faust. In spite of this, the Terrapins hit their first four shots and raced to an 11-3 lead. Freshman Shaquille Cleare had two baskets in the surge and scored 10 of his 12 points before halftime. Kyree Jones led Maryland-Eastern Shore (0-8) with 24 points, including 18 in the first half, and Troy Snyder had 19. With 14 minutes left, Jones had 21 of his team's 38 points. Jones scored the Hawks' first 11 points, and a follow-shot by Travis Trim cut the deficit to 20-13. Aronhalt then drilled a pair of 3-pointers in a 10-point spurt that put Maryland up 30-13. The margin swelled to 20 points for the first time when Seth Allen scored from beyond the arc to make it 41-21 with 2:38 left in the half. Jones was 7 for 12 from the field in the first half and his teammates were 2 for 27.
