Sean Singletary scored 27 points in what was likely his final home game and Virginia beat Maryland 91-76 Sunday night, damaging the Terrapins' already withering hopes of gaining an at-large berth in the NCAA tournament.
Singletary, honored with three other seniors beforehand, had his jersey retired and unveiled hanging from the ceiling. He finished in style, also added six rebounds and eight assists to help the postseason hopes of the Cavaliers (15-14, 5-11 ACC), and added his 2,000th career point on a layup with 2:28 remaining.
It gave Virginia an 82-73 lead, stopped a 5-point run by Maryland and left the Terps (18-13, 8-8) with another damaging loss, their fourth in the past five games.
As was fitting for the occasion, Singletary was spectacular most of the night, and the crowd rose and cheered wildly when he was removed with 36.6 seconds to play.
