Freshman Charles Mitchell came off the bench and scored a season-high 19 points and Maryland extended its winning streak to 11 games by beating Delaware State 79-50 Saturday. Dez Wells and freshman Seth Allen each scored 10 points for the Terrapins (11-1). Mitchell also had 14 rebounds for his third double-double. Maryland has not lost since falling to then-No. 1 Kentucky 72-69 in the season opener. The current winning streak is Maryland's longest in 10 years. Tahj Tate had 20 points for Delaware State (5-8), which has lost three consecutive games. The Terps came in holding opponents to 34.6 percent shooting from the field, ranked third nationally, and they continued that trend by holding Delaware State to 32.1 percent (18 of 56). After the Terps trailed early, a jumper by Mitchell capped a 17-2 run and gave them a 32-16 lead with 4:43 left in the half. A layup by Jake Layman at the buzzer gave Maryland a 40-22 lead, with freshmen accounting for 26 of those points. The Terps outscored the Hornets 32-10 inside the paint. Maryland continued to pull away in the second half, and a layup by Wells increased the lead to 54-31 with 13:30 left. The Terps coasted the rest of the way. Maryland has one more nonconference game Tuesday against IUPUI before opening Atlantic Coast Conference play Jan. 5 against Virginia Tech.
