FRIDAY HOOP

MARYLAND 76, Delaware (Blue Hens, 16,548 students, Newark, DE) 46

Much better…James Gist bounced back from a horrid performance to score 18 points and grab 10 rebounds, and Maryland snapped a three-game losing streak with a 76-46 rout of Delaware on Friday night.

Greivis Vasquez scored 18 points and Bambale Osby added 14 for the Terrapins (7-6), who were coming off losses at home to Boston College, Ohio and American. In the latter game, Gist had 3 points and four rebounds in 22 minutes before fouling out.

BOSTON COLLEGE 80, Sacred Heart (Pioneers, 3,200 students, Fairfield, CT) 75

Tyrese “Jerry, Not Donna” Rice and Shamari “Dangit, Put The Kids In The Backseat, Britney” Spears scored 16 points each to lead Boston College to an 80-75 win over Sacred Heart on Friday night.

Rice, the team's leading scorer at 19.7 points per game, shot 3-for-6 from the floor but went 8-for-8 from the line, hitting six in the final three minutes after Sacred Heart trimmed a 16-point deficit to five, 70-65, with 3:03 to play.
The Pioneers (4-8) cut it to 78-75 with 10.2 seconds left, but Spears sealed it with two free throws.

VIRGINIA TECH 84, Hofstra (The Pride, 13,000 students, Hempstead, NY) 59

Freshman Jeff Allen had 17 points and nine rebounds and the Hokies beat Hofstra 84-59 on Friday night in the opening round of the Aeropostale Holiday Festival.

The Pride were without senior guard Antoine Agudio, the second-leading scorer in the nation with a 26.8 average. Agudio sprained his left ankle in practice on Wednesday.
