JAN 1:
MARYLAND 81, IUPUI 63 - Maryland finished its tear through the non-conference portion of the schedule and coach Mark Turgeon is confident his team is finally ready for the challenge of ACC play.

Freshman guard Seth Allen scored 13 points and the Terrapins increased their winning streak to 12 games by beating IUPUI 81-63 Tuesday.

Logan Aronhalt came off the bench and finished with 10 points for the Terrapins (12-1). Maryland shot 54.7 percent (29 of 53) from the field.

Maryland has not lost since falling to then-No. 1 Kentucky 72-69 in the season opener. The Terrapins have their best record entering ACC play since 1998-1999 when they were 13-1. It is also Maryland's longest winning streak in 10 years.

CLEMSON 92, The Citadel 51 - Clemson produced season-best offensive numbers in terms of shooting percentage and points in a rout of The Citadel on Tuesday, the Tigers' final non-conference game prior to the start of ACC play. The win improved Clemson to 8-4, while dropping The Citadel to 3-8 on the season.

Adonis Filer scored a season-high 21 points, the most for a Tiger freshman since Terrence Oglesby had 21 against Puerto Rico-Mayaguez in 2007-08. Filer did not miss in seven field goal tries and was 3-4 from the line. He made all four of his three-point attempts, also a season-best. Jordan Roper, another freshman guard, added 13, while Damarcus Harrison chipped in 10.

The Tigers' 92 points were the most by the program since the 2009-10 season, when Oliver Purnell's final team posted 94 against College of Charleston. Clemson shot 61 percent and made 35 field goals.

DEC 31:
BOSTON COLLEGE 97, Darthmouth 58 - Freshman Joe Rahon hit all six of his 3-point attempts and scored a career-high 24 points to lead Boston College past Dartmouth on Monday afternoon in Conte Forum.

Rahon's 24 points are the most by an ACC freshman in a game this season. He was nearly perfect from the field, going 7-for-8 from the floor, 6-for-6 from beyond the arc and 4-for-4 from the foul line. He also had five assists and three rebounds.

#23 N.C. STATE 89, UNC Greensboro 68 - No team makes shots more frequently than North Carolina State, and that's largely because of the 23rd-ranked Wolfpack's quality depth.
C.J. Leslie led five players in double figures with 21 points in N.C. State's win over UNC Greensboro on Monday.

Scott Wood and Lorenzo Brown added 15 points apiece, and the Wolfpack (11-2) largely kept the Spartans off the boards after halftime while using a timely run to break open a surprisingly tight game. N.C. State outrebounded them 24-16 in the second half.

Richard Howell had 11 points and 13 rebounds, and T.J. Warren finished with 13 points for the nation's most accurate shooting team, which shot 53 percent in winning its seventh straight, matching its longest winning streak since 2008.
