COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Terrell Stoglin scored 19 of his 24 points in the decisive first half, and Maryland cruised to an 81-65 victory over struggling Boston College on Thursday night.
Stoglin went 7 for 10 from the field before halftime and put the Terrapins in front for good by scoring 14 consecutive points over a three-minute span. The Atlantic Coast Conference scoring leader finished 5 for 8 from beyond the arc in his 18th game with at least 20 points.
Stoglin has 68 3-pointers this season, breaking the school record for a sophomore (Greivis Vasquez had 64 in 2007-08).
Maryland (15-10, 5-6) led by 19 with 13 minutes elapsed and 41-27 at halftime. After Boston College scored the first six points of the second half, three-point plays by Nick Faust and James Padgett ignited a 9-2 spree that made it 50-35.
The Eagles (8-18, 3-9) closed to 63-56 but could not complete the comeback.
