ACC Hump Night Hoops

Sean Mosely
MARYLAND 106, Longwood (Lancers, 4,080 students, Farmville, VA) 52 – Sean Mosley scored 20 points Wednesday night as six Maryland players finished in double figures in a rout of Longwood.

The point total was a season best for the Terrapins (16-8), who also racked up their second win of more than 50 points.

The win was Maryland coach Gary Williams' 665th career victory, pushing him past the legendary John Wooden.

Maryland was playing a rare mid-season nonconference game and Longwood (8-18) was obviously outmanned from the start as the Terps jumped to an 11-0 lead and never trailed.
The Terrapins outrebounded the Lancers 55-28, shot 54.2 percent from the field (39 of 72) and made 10 of a season-high 28 3-pointers.

Terrell Stoglin added 15 points for Maryland, while Dino Gregory had 14, Haukur Palsson 13, Pe'Shon Howard 11 and Adrian Bowie 10.

Aaron Mitchell led the Lancers with 15 points and Antwan Carter added 13.

Reggie Johnson
MIAMI 74, WAKE FOREST 73 – Evidently…the Canes like close games.

Reggie Johnson hit two free throws with 4 seconds left and Miami survived a rimmed-out 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat last-place Wake Forest on Wednesday to snap a 13-game ACC road losing streak.

Playing in his hometown, Johnson scored 25 points and grabbed seven rebounds, calmly sinking both foul shots for the 20th lead change of the night.

Wake Forest was out of timeouts, but quickly got the ball to J.T. Terrell, whose deep 3-pointer did a 360-degree role around the rim before falling out as the horn sounded.

Durand Scott added 17 points before fouling out for the Hurricanes (15-9, 4-6), who won their third straight game. It was Miami's first win in six tries at Joel Coliseum.

C.J. Harris scored a career-high 24 points, including two free throws with 11.3 seconds left to give Wake Forest (8-16, 1-8) its last lead.

It marked the eighth straight tight game for the Hurricanes, who are starting to find ways to win them as they try to move up the ACC ladder.
