Terps fall to Tar Heels, 75-63

It was another frustrating night for the Maryland Terrapins, who struggled from the outset in a 75-63 loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels in the final meeting between the two teams in the ACC.

Maryland got off to another slow start, this time falling behind 12-0 in the opening minutes and forcing Mark Turgeon to take an early timeout.

Despite the timeout, the Terps fell farther behind, trailing 19-3 in what appeared to be a rout in the making.

The Terps then mounted a serious run lead by Charles Mitchell, of all people, to climb right back into the game. The Tar Heels had no answer for Mitchell, who dominated the offensive glass.

However, missed free throws and turnovers really hurt the Terps toward the end of the first half and allowed the Tar Heels to once again build the lead to double digits heading into halftime.

The second half was more of the same, as it seemed every time Maryland cut into the North Carolina lead to get within striking distance, the Tar Heels quickly responded by going on a run of their own.

Maryland had several players in foul trouble throughout the game, and sloppy play once again was a major problem.

The loss halts some of Maryland's momentum after winning their past two ACC contests. The Terps will try to regroup Saturday when they host the Florida State Seminoles, a team that embarrassed them in Tallahassee earlier in the season.
