Maryland 94, Virginia Tech 71

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 05, 2013
Freshman guard Jake Layman scored 18 of his 20 points in the decisive first half, and Maryland rolled past Virginia Tech 94-71 Saturday for its 13th consecutive victory. The Terrapins' winning streak is tied for the second longest in school history behind a 14-game run in 1931-32. After defeating 12 non-league opponents, Maryland opened the Atlantic Coast Conference portion of its schedule with a satisfying romp. Seth Allen scored 21 points and Alex Len had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Terrapins (13-1, 1-0), who never trailed after Layman hit a 3-pointer off the opening tip. It was the Terrapins' second-most lopsided victory over Virginia Tech, behind only a 51-16 rout in 1932. Layman started in place of injured Nick Faust, who saw limited time off the bench before leaving in the first half with a sore shoulder. Layman went 6 for 12 from the floor, including 4 for 9 from beyond the arc, to easily eclipse his previous season high of 10 points. Erick Green scored 28 for Virginia Tech, playing its first ACC game under coach James Johnson. After falling behind 53-37 at halftime, the Hokies (9-5, 0-1) never seriously threatened in losing for the fifth time in seven games. Virginia Tech shot 37.3 percent (25 of 67) and went 4 for 19 from 3-point range. Green was 8 for 18 from the floor, Robert Brown 4 for 15 and Jarell Eddie made only two of 12 shots. Layman scored Maryland's first five points, then jammed in a teammate's miss to make it 13-4. It was 26-22 before Layman and Dez Wells sandwiched 3-pointers around a Virginia Tech basket for a 32-24 lead. After the Hokies closed to 34-31, Len made a baseline jumper, Layman drilled a pair of 3-pointers and Allen also connected from beyond the arc for a 45-31 lead. Virginia Tech got to 68-53 early in the second half before Maryland's Logan Aronhalt hit a 3-pointer and Allen scored in the lane for a 20-point cushion. It was 69-58 with 9:55 left before the Terrapins pulled away.
