COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Melo Trimble scored 21 points, Michal Cekovsky provided an emotional spark in his season debut and Maryland stayed unbeaten with a 77-63 victory over Stony Brook on Tuesday night.

Coming off a tight win over Towson two days earlier, the Terrapins (5-0) built an 11-point halftime lead and maintained a comfortable advantage the rest of the way. Dion Wiley scored 13 points, including a 4 for 5 from showing from beyond the arc, in his return from a stomach bug that kept him out of the Towson game Sunday.

Trimble went 4 for 8 from the floor and 10 for 11 at the foul line. It was his fourth game with 20 or more points this season. With 10 made free throws, he eclipsed the 400 mark for his career - a feat done by only seven other Terrapins in program history.

Seeing action for the first time after being sidelined by a sprained foot, Cekovsky came off the bench to contribute 11 points in 16 minutes before fouling out. The 7-foot-1 Slovakian thrilled the crowd with several alley-oop dunks.

Lucas Woodhouse scored 14 and Tyrell Sturdivant had nine points and 10 rebounds for Stony Brook (0-3), the defending America East champions.

Maryland returns to action when it faces Richmond at 9:30 p.m. in the Barclays Classic in Brooklyn on Friday.
