Maybe it wasn’t as big an upset as the “exoerts” are saying, but the nature of the victory was a shocker. Maryland got on top 17-3 and never looked back holding on to a double digit lead for almost the entire 2nd half.
The defense led by Darryl Morsell was suffocating as it was in the other 2 road upsets. The team defended the 3 as well as I have seen in the past 2 years as the Gophers shot 5-23. The defense also shut down Center Liam Robbins.
Remember this was the same Minnesota team that just whacked Michigan 75-57. Minnesota definitely overlooked the Terps and paid the price,
Eric Ayala led the way with 21 points on 8-14 shooting. Donta scored 15 with 11 rebounds in his 35 minutes of play.
