Clemson Hoops Falls At Maryland 72-59
COLLEGE PARK, MD (AP) -- Sophomore Nick Faust had a season-high 18 points and Maryland won its fourth consecutive game over Clemson, 72-59 on Saturday.
Freshmen Jake Layman and Shaquille Cleare scored 12 and 10 points, respectively, for the Terrapins (19-8, 7-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), who are 16-2 at home.
Devin Booker scored 16 points for Clemson (13-13, 5-9), reaching double figures for the 11th time in 14 conference games. Jordan Roper also had 13 points and Milton Jennings scored 10 for the Tigers, who haven't beaten Maryland since 2010.
The Terrapins outrebounded Clemson 39-29, matching their plus-10 average rebounding margin for the season, second best in the NCAA. Maryland, however, made just 6 of 16 free throws (37.5 percent).
Former Maryland coach Charles "Lefty" Driesell was honored at halftime. Driesell, who coached the Terrapins from 1969 to 1986, compiled a 348-159 record, won an ACC title and led the Terrapins to eight NCAA tournament appearances.
