COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Mike Scott had a career-high 35 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, Sammy Zeglinski scored 20 points, and No. 24 Virginia overcame a late collapse in regulation to pull out a 75-72 overtime victory over Maryland on Sunday. Scott accounted for half of Virginia's 14 points in overtime. The 6-foot-8 senior had never scored more than 28 points in an Atlantic Coast Conference game. The Cavaliers blew a 12-point lead over the final 8 minutes of regulation but survived the extra session to break a two-game skid. The victory gave Virginia (22-8, 9-7) its most regular-season wins since the Ralph Sampson-led team produced 25 in 1982-83. With beating Maryland 71-44 on Feb. 18, the Cavaliers completed their first sweep of the Terrapins since 2007. Terrell Stoglin scored 25 points and Sean Mosley added 17 for Maryland (16-14, 6-10). Successive baskets by Scott in overtime gave the Cavaliers a 69-63 lead. After Maryland closed to 69-67, Jontel Evans made a layup for Virginia and Joe Harris added two free throws to secure the win. Virginia led 57-49 with 5:51 remaining before the Terrapins mounted a comeback. Two free throws by Stoglin and baskets by Nick Faust and James Padgett made it 57-55. Scott blunted the surge with a basket, but a drive by Stoglin and a free throw by Padgett got the Terps within one. After Zeglinski hit a jumper for Virginia with 13 seconds go to, Stoglin drilled a 3-pointer with 7 seconds left to tie it at 61. Virginia led 40-35 when Maryland coach Mark Turgeon was called for a technical foul. Scott made one of the two free throws, Mosley answered with two foul shots and a 3-pointer to make it 41-40, the closest the Terrapins got to the lead since it was 5-4. Following a Virginia timeout, Zeglinski connected from beyond the arc and Scott scored four points at the line to launch a 12-1 run that put the Cavaliers ahead 53-41 with 8:11 remaining. The lead would not stand up. After scoring only 13 points in the second half at Virginia two weeks earlier, Maryland didn't fare much better in the first half of this one. The Terps went 10 for 30 from field, missed all six of their free throws and were outrebounded in falling behind 31-22. Maryland took an early lead before Akil Mitchell made a hook shot and a layup to begin a 12-3 spurt that put the Cavaliers up 15-7. Scott took over in the latter portion of the half, scoring 10 of Virginia's final 16 points. Stoglin went 3 for 12 from the field over the opening 20 minutes and spent the first 5 minutes of the second half on the bench while Turgeon took his chances with reserves John Auslander and Jonathan Thomas.
