COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- James Padgett scored 16 points, including a pivotal three-point play in the final minute, and Maryland held Miami without a basket over a nine-minute stretch in a 75-70 victory Tuesday night. Maryland (16-11, 6-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 66-61 before rallying with a 10-0 run during the final two minutes. A 3-point shot by Sean Mosley and a three-point play by Padgett preceded two three throws by Mosley and two more by Terrell Stoglin. Stoglin finished with 20 points on 6-for-17 shooting and Mosley contributed 15 points. Kenny Kadji scored 16 for the Hurricanes (16-10, 7-6). After Durand Scott connected for Miami with 9:07 remaining, the Hurricanes didn't make another field goal until Shane Larkin canned a layup with 16.9 seconds left. Despite the drought, Miami kept finding its way to the foul line and held a five-point lead with 2:04 remaining. A 3-pointer by Mosley cut the Hurricanes' lead to 66-64 with 1:37 to go. After Miami missed twice, Padgett was fouled on a follow-shot and made the free throw for a 67-66 lead with 44 seconds to play. Scott then lost the handle on the basketball and fouled out trying to get it back from Mosley, who sank two free throws for a three-point cushion. Another Miami turnover followed, and Stoglin made two at the line to clinch it. Maryland trailed 56-49 with 9:07 remaining before Alex Len made successive dunks and Ashton Pankey hit a jumper off the glass to cut the gap to one point. Seconds later, a tip-in by Len tied it at 57, setting the stage for another thrilling finish between these two teams. Earlier this month, Miami beat the Terps at home in double overtime. The Hurricanes overcame an early 10-point deficit to take a 35-31 halftime lead, in part because of a 21-14 rebounding advantage that included seven on the offensive end. Minutes after Maryland honored former guard Johnny Rhodes by hanging his No. 15 from the rafters at Comcast Center, the Terrapins got off to a raise-the-roof start. Padgett made three baskets, Mosley had two, and Maryland connected on six of its first seven attempts from the floor in bolting to a 13-3 lead. The 13 points -- scored in 4 minutes -- equaled the Terps' output for the entire second half in Saturday's 71-44 loss at Virginia. But the Hurricanes battled back behind Malcolm Grant, who made a pair of 3-pointers and two foul shots during a 10-0 run that put Miami up 28-23. After its torrid start, Maryland made only four of its next 16 shots from the floor. Stoglin broke the dry spell with a 3-pointer to spark a 7-0 spurt that got the Terrapins to 32-31.
