Brr-r-r: Terps dominate frigid Cavs

Maryland shot 54 percent from the field and held a cold-shooting Virginia to 33.3 percent en route to a runaway 66-42 win at the John Paul Jones Arena Thursday night.

A 14-4 run to close the first half gave the Terps (13-7, 3-3 ACC) a 26-21 lead at the half. Virginia (11-9, 2-4 ACC) closed to within 26-24 early in the second half before a 9-0 Maryland run gave the Terrapins a working margin.

The ‘Hoos were woeful shooting the ball all around, hitting 4-of-17 from three-point range and just 6-of-13 from the free-throw line.

A sign of how tough it was for UVa. on the night: No Cav scored in double figures. Joe Harris and Mustapha Farrakhan led Virginia with eight points each.

Anthony Bowie led Maryland with 22 points.
