MARYLAND 64, CLEMSON 62 - Terrell Stoglin scored a game-high 27 points and helped Maryland hold off a late rally by Clemson Tuesday night.

The Terrapins (14-9, 4-5 ACC) were seemingly in control, leading 53-39 with 7:55 to go, but the Tigers (11-12, 3-6) went on a 19-6 run to cut the lead to a single point on a pair of free throws by Devin Booker with 1:14 remaining.

After a Maryland timeout, Sean Mosley fed Alex Len in the post for a layup to make it 61-58 and Stoglin followed with two foul shots to put Maryland in front 63-59.

Clemson's Milton Jennings hit a 3-pointer to draw the Tigers within one once again, but after a free throw by Mosley, Andre Young's halfcourt heave at the buzzer bounced off the rim to preserve the Terrapins' first road win of the season.

Stoglin had one of his more efficient games of the year, knocking down 9 of 11 shots, including 4 of 6 from 3-point range. It was the 17th 20-point game of the season for the sophomore, who also added a career-high four steals and knocked down 5 of 6 at the free-throw line.
