COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Rasheed Sulaimon hit a 3-pointer with 1:18 left to break a tie, and No. 3 Maryland got 24 points from Melo Trimble in a rousing 75-71 victory over neighborhood rival Georgetown on Tuesday night.

Maryland (2-0) was stretched to the finish against Georgetown, which led by seven in the second half before wilting. The Hoyas looked much sharper than in their season-opening, double-overtime loss to Radford but fell to 0-2 for the first time since the 1998-99 season.

With the score tied at 68, Sulaimon made his only basket of the second half to put the Terrapins ahead to stay. Two free throws by Trimble upped the margin to five points with 12 seconds left, assuring Maryland a victory.

Bradley Hayes had 16 points and eight rebounds for the Hoyas, and D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera scored 14.

Jake Layman scored 15 for the Terrapins and Robert Carter added 12.
