College basketball: No. 22 Indiana loses 78-75 at Maryland
Bruno Fernando had a career-high 25 points and 13 rebounds, Anthony Cowan Jr. scored 24 and Maryland used a second-half surge to rally past No. 22 Indiana 78-75 on Friday night.
The Terrapins (14-3, 5-1 Big Ten) trailed by 14 points early in the game and by 10 shortly after halftime before storming back to earn their fifth straight victory.
Two of those wins came against ranked foes — then-No. 24 Nebraska and the Hoosiers (12-4, 3-2), who have lost two in a row following a seven-game winning streak.
Romeo Langford scored 28 points and Juwan Morgan added 14 for Indiana. The Hoosiers shot 12 for 28 in the second half and were outscored 51-40.
After Morgan made the first basket after halftime to go up 37-27, the Terps rattled off 16 straight points — taking their first lead of the game in the process.
Cowan and Darryl Morsell each contributed five points to the surge, and Maryland applied a tight zone defense to force Indiana into nine successive missed shots.
The Terrapins never lost the lead, in part because their only turnover of the second half came with 11 seconds left.
Fernando, a 6-foot-10 sophomore forward, made 11 of 12 shots from the floor to surpass his previous career best of 21 points.
Maryland star freshman Jalen Smith went 0 for 7 during a scoreless first half and finished with 2 points on 0-for-9 shooting, but he contributed 10 rebounds.
Travel issues due to a winter storm have led to postponement of Missouri’s men’s basketball game at South Carolina. The teams were scheduled to meet Saturday at South Carolina’s Colonial Life Arena.
South Carolina announced Friday that both teams are in contact with the Southeastern Conference about possible makeup dates for the game. The Tigers (9-4, 0-1) were seeking their first SEC win. The Gamecocks (7-7, 2-0) had opened league play with victories over Florida and No. 14 Mississippi State.
No. 10 Oregon State 83, at UCLA 73: Destiny Slocum scored 22 points, Mikayla Pivec added 21 and the Beavers pulled away in the fourth quarter for their fifth consecutive victory.
The Beavers (13-2, 3-0 Pac-12) never trailed in the third and fourth quarters, but UCLA made it close. The Bruins (9-7, 2-2) got within three points once in the third and twice in the fourth.
Leading 61-58, Oregon State ran off nine straight points to extend its lead to 70-58. Aleah Goodman hit an open layup and Taya Corosdale had a basket and three free throws before Pivec scored to close out the spurt. Michaela Onyenwere led UCLA with 24 points. Lajahna Drummer had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Kennedy Burke had 18 points.
No. 5 Oregon 93, at USC 53: Satou Sabally scored 26 points and the Ducks won their second straight Pac-12 game by 40 points. Sebally was a point away from tying her career high, which she set earlier this season against UC Irvine.
Sabrina Ionescu added 17 points, Taylor Chavez 14 and Ruthy Hebard 12 for Oregon (14-1, 3-0 Pac-12), which won its seventh straight. The 40-point victory tied for the third-largest win by the Ducks in conference play, equaling the 98-58 victory they had last Sunday against Washington State.
Aliyah Mazyck led USC (10-5, 0-4) with 16 points and Ja’Tavia Tapley added 13. Mariya Moore, who scored a career high 36 points in last Sunday’s loss at California, had 11 points.
