COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Greivis Vasquez and Landon Milbourne each scored 16 points, and Maryland pounced on Miami at the outset Tuesday night in an 81-59 rout that gave the Terrapins sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Maryland (14-5, 4-1) scored the game's first six points, increased the margin to 21 just before halftime and cruised to its fourth straight win. Eric Hayes and Sean Mosley had 10 points apiece, and Vasquez finished with nine assists.
The victory pushed the surprising Terrapins a half-game ahead of Virginia in the ACC.
Combined with an 88-64 win over North Carolina State on Saturday, Maryland has recorded successive 20-point victories in the conference for the first time since February 2003.
Durand Scott scored 13 for last-place Miami (15-5, 1-5). The Hurricanes committed 14 turnovers and took only 16 shots in the pivotal first half.
Charles Matthews, who spent his freshman season at Kentucky, has picked Michigan as his transfer school, according to a source.
Chad Ford and Jeff Goodman offer their opinions on the surprises they're expecting at the NBA draft, with Ford believing there will be a lot of trade activity while Goodman thinks people will be surprised by potential draft spot of Marquese Chriss.
Louisville coach Rick Pitino said he doesn't "have time to figure out what" Kentucky coach John Calipari meant in recent comments that appeared to be a jab at the Cardinals' program.
