College Basketball:Maryland 73, Miami 68

Associated Press
COLLEGE PARK, Md. ó Greivis Vasquez had 11 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, barely missing Maryland’s first triple-double since 1987, and the Terrapins defeated Miami 73-68 Saturday night.
Landon Milbourne scored 17 points and Dave Neal 11 for Maryland (14-7, 3-4 ACC), which snapped a three-game losing streak to the Hurricanes (14-7, 3-5). The Terrapins committed only seven turnovers and scored 20 points off 16 Hurricane turnovers.
Jack McClinton led Miami with 18 points. James Dews added 13 for the Hurricanes, who have dropped three straight.
After McClinton’s one-handed slam set up a three-point play that tied the game at 29 with 17:59 remaining, Milbourne’s jumper ignited a 18-7 Maryland run for a 47-36 Maryland lead.
Five different Terrapins scored during the surge, which was capped by Neal’s transition basket off a no-look pass by Vasquez, and mirrored a 3-for-19 drought from the field for Miami.
Vasquez had a chance to get his 10th assist with 15.3 seconds left, but Adrian Bowie couldn’t convert his baseline pass for a fast-break layup.
Derrick Lewis, owns the only two triple-doubles in Maryland history. He had 32 points, 10 rebounds and 10 blocked shots on Feb. 17, 1987, against Maryland-Baltimore County, three weeks after turning the trick against James Madison.
Maryland led 27-24 at halftime, despite weathering a 3-for-15 stretch from the field and a 15-8 Hurricanes run after jumping to a 12-7 lead.
The Terrapins used a pressure defense to force 11 Miami turnovers in the opening 20 minutes, converting the giveaways into 13 points, and committed only three first-half turnovers.
