COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) – Greivis Vasquez had 20 points and eight assists, Landon Milbourne added a career-high 18 points and Maryland rallied in the second half to beat Florida State 82-72 in an Atlantic Coast Conference game Saturday.
James Gist scored 17 points and Bambale Osby 14 for the Terrapins (17-9, 7-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). Despite a career-high 26 points from Ralph Mims, Florida State (14-12, 3-8) lost for the fifth time in six games.
Coming off a 77-65 loss at No. 2 Duke on Wednesday, Maryland overcame an erratic first half to take control down the stretch, going 14-for-23 from the floor in the second half.
Vasquez sparked an 11-2 run that opened the second half and turned around an eight-point halftime deficit.
Vasquez knocked down three straight 3-pointers for a 43-42 Maryland lead with 17:55 left. Florida State kept it close before a 3-point play by Osby started a 10-2 Terrapin spree that wiped away the Seminoles’ 57-56 lead, their final one of the game.
