Nick Faust scored 12 points, Alex Len had 11, and Maryland plodded past Morehead State 67-45 Monday night.
The Terrapins (1-1) seemed to lack the same intensity they showed in a narrow season-opening loss to defending NCAA champion Kentucky. But Maryland still had enough talent, height and depth to beat the cold-shooting Eagles (1-1).

Hill palmed Fausts neck, spoke briefly in his ear, then let him continue to his seat.
Faust planted himself in the padded ACC chair and looked up, a grin fixed on...
The Terps played No. 15 Alabama down in Puerto Rico tonight and it did not go well. Like, really not well. As in, they only scored 42 points not well.
That’s fewer points than a Gary Williams-led Maryland team ever scored. And it’s Mark Turgeon’s second game. Impressive.
Also impressive was top freshman (for the Terps at least) Nick Faust’s new mohawk (@sunjeffbarker has...
