MARYLAND 84 KENTUCKY 96 November 24, 1995
Springfield Civic Center, Springfield, Mass. Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic

Kentucky's bottomless bench and inside game helped the No. 1 Wlidcats hold-off No. 14 Maryland, 96-84, in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic. Kentucky quickly turned a two-point half-time lead into an 18-point margin only to have to hold off the fast charging Terps. Maryland's pressure defense got the Terps back into the contest late as consecutive baskets by Johnny Rhodes (career high 30 points) and two free-throws by Duane Simpkins (16 points) cut the Wildcats lead to 86-80 with 2:15 remaining. Kentucky scored 10 of the final 14 points of the game to gain the victory. Maryland opened the game strongly, taking an early 11-point lead five minutes into the action. Johnny Rhodes scored nine early points to highlight a 15-2 Terp run, leading to an early 20-9 cushion. Kentucky, though, outscored Maryland 28-15 over the remainder of the half.

TOWSON STATE 67 MARYLAND 70 November 27, 1995
Baltimore Arena, Baltimore, Maryland

Seniors Johnny Rhodes (22 points) and Duane Simpkins (16 points) combined for 38 points to lead no. 19 Maryland past Towson State, 70-67, at Baltimore Arena.

Needing a three-pointer to send the game into overtime, Tigers' guard Ralph Blalock missed from the right wing at the buzzer. Despite shooting only 40.7 percent (22 of 55) from the field, Maryland rallied behind its senior guard duo. Rhodes puled Maryland even at 55 half-way through the second half with two free throws and then put Maryland ahead for good with another free throw with six minutes remaining. Junior forward Keith Booth scored 11 points and sophomore Rodney Elliott scored four points and grabbed six rebounds in the pair's return to their hometown of Baltimore, Md.

NORTH CAROLINA 88 MARYLAND 86 (OT) January 6, 1996
Cole Field House, College Park, Md.

Freshman Antawn Jamison scored 25 of his game high 31 points in the second half including a basket at the buzzer in overtime to give No. 16 North Carolina 88-86 victory over Maryland. Jamison's game winning basket was set up after Maryland's Keith Booth missed a jumper from the right corner with 20 seconds remaining. Tar Heel guar Jeff McInnis then missed a jumper, but teammate Dante Calabria grabbed the rebound in traffic, fell to the floor and threw a prayer toward to basket that Jamison scooped and deposited into the basket. Calabria added 21 for North Carolina which shot 54.7 percent from the field. Forward Mario Lucas scored 21 points off the bench for the Terps. The Terps had built an 84-79 lead in the overtime period but Jamison scored four points in the last two minutes to pull North Carolina even before his desperation shot.

N.C. STATE 74 MARYLAND 77 (OT) January 20, 1996
Cole Field House, College Park, Md.

Junior Keith Booth scored 14 points and pulled down 14 rebounds, blocked five shots, had five steals and five assists to lead Maryland to a 77-74 overtime victory over N.C. State. The game marked the second victory in a row and first of the season in the ACC for the Terps. Maryland also received a critical effort from freshman Obinna Ekezie who helped hold the ACC's leading scorer Todd Fuller to a season low eight points. In addition to Ekezie's stellar play in the middle, Maryland also received a steadying hand from freshman point guard Terrell Stokes down the stretch. But it was sophomore Sarunas Jasikevicius who hit perhaps the biggest shot of the Terps' season so far. It was Jasikevicius's three-point basket from the top of the circle with the shot clock down to three seconds and the score tied at 69 that put the Terps on top to say in the overtime period.

CLEMSON 60 MARYLAND 65 January 24, 1996
Cole Field House, College Park, Md.

Senior Johnny Rhodes and junior Keith Booth scored 17 points each to lead Maryland to a 65-60 victory over No. 18 Clemson at home. An early second-half 6-0 blitz by the Terps allowed them to recover a lead which it had throughout the entire first half. Baskets by freshman Obinna Ekezie (6 points, 11 rebounds) and Terrell Stokes (three points) and two free throws by Rhodes allowed the Terps to take a lead late in the second half which they did not relinquish. The Terps hit four free throws in the final minute of the game to secure the victory. Guard Terrell McIntyre scored a game high 22 points for Clemson while Andrius Jurkunas scored 14 and Greg Buckner 12 for the Tigers.

MARYLAND 73 DUKE 83 January 28, 1996
Cameron Indoor Stadium, Durham, N.C.

Maryland had its season high-tying three-game winning streak snapped by Duke, 83-73, at Cameron Indoor Stadium. After playing perhaps its worst first half of the season, the Terps outscored Duke by 10 over the final 10 minutes of the game to pull within 10 at the final buzzer. Maryland began sluggishly and was forced to play catch-up after falling behind by 12 less than six minutes into the game. That meant fouling - the teams combined for 52 fouls and 82 free throws in the 2 1/2 hour game. The strategy almost worked for the Terps as they cut the Blue Devil lead to 67-61 with 3:39 to play, but could not get any closer. Senior Johnny Rhodes led the Terps in scoring with 22 points while senior Mario Lucas scored 17 and junior Keith Booth added 15. Duke guard Jeff Capel led five Blue Devils in scoring with 18 points.

GEORGIA TECH 74 MARYLAND 88 February 3, 1996
Cole Field House, College Park, Md.

Senior guard Duane Simpkins led five Terps in double figures as Maryland defeated No. 25 Georgia Tech 88-74 in Cole Field House. The victory was Maryland's fifth in its last six games and moved them into fourth place in the ACC standings. Maryland seemed to do everything correctly on defense and constantly frustrated the Yellow Jackets on offense. The Terps spent the afternoon breaking down every defense the Jackets threw at them, from man-to-man to zone to a triangle-and-two. In addition to Simpkins's 15 points, senior Exree Hipp and junior Keith Booth also scored 15 points while freshman Terrell Stokes scored his career high of 15 and senior Johnny Rhodes added 10. The Terps led 37-36 at half-time and broke the game open with a 13-3 run to begin the second half. The spurt provided breathing room for the remainder of the game. Freshman Stephon Marbury led Georgia Tech with a game-high 26 points.

MARYLAND 84 NORTH CAROLINA 78 February 6, 1996
Dean E. Smith Center, Chapel Hill, N.C.

In its boldest statement of the season, Maryland toppled No. 12 North Carolina, 84-78, at the Smith Center in Chapel Hill. The win marked Maryland's first in the building since 1990 and was its fifth win in six conference games. The victory in Chapel Hill was the first in the four-year career of Maryland seniors Exree Hipp, Mario Lucas, Johnny Rhodes and Duane Simpkins. But it was freshman Terrell Stokes hit three clutch free throws in the final 20 seconds to thwart a furious North Carolina comeback which had seen the Tar Heels recover from 17 points down. Maryland, which led 37-35 at half-time, got their first 25 points of the second half from their senior quartet to open a 62-50 lead. Hipp scored the Terps first eight points of the half. Stokes was sent to the free throw line with 20.4 seconds remaining and the score tied a 78. He hit both shots and another with 13.2 second remaining to secure the victory.

DUKE 77 MARYLAND 75 February 28, 1996
Cole Field House, College Park, Md.

Duke's Ricky Price threw in a three-point rainmaker from the left corner to propel Duke to a 77-75 victory over Maryland at the buzzer in Cole Field House. Maryland was protecting a 75-74 lead in the closing seconds when forward Keith Booth was ruled out of bounds trying to save a loose ball. Duke's Stan Brunson inbounded the ball to Blue Devil guard Steve Wojciechowski near midcourt, and he dribbled left and fired a pass to Price in the corner. Price, who found himself all alone after a defensive scramble, hit all net. Booth and senior Johnny Rhodes led Maryland with 18 points for Maryland while guard Chris Collins led Duke with a game high 27.

Cole Field House, College Park, Md.

Keith Booth scored 29 points on 10 of 14 shooting from the field and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Maryland past Virginia, 83-71, in Cole Field House.

In addition to Booth's big game, senior Johnny Rhodes broke the all-time ACC record for steals in a career during the first half. Maryland's pressing defense produced 15 steals and forced 24 turnovers. Guard Curtis Staples scored a team high 20 points for the Cavaliers.. The game was punctuated by superlatives, starting with the pre-game ceremony that saw All-American Joe Smith return to Cole Field House for the first time since the end of his collegiate career. His jersey number 32 was unfurled from the rafters prior to the game.

FLORIDA STATE 78 MARYLAND 88 March 4, 1996
Cole Field House, College Park, Md.

Freshman Laron Profit made eight of nine shots from the field and scored a game high 22 points to lead the Terps to an inspiring 88-78 victory over Florida State in Cole Field House. The game was the last conference game of the season and was a make-up from January 9 when the Washington, D.C. area was blanketed with a record snowfall. Profit doubled his previous career high and marked the most by a Terps freshman since Joe Smith scored 24 versus Loyola (Md.) during the 1994 season. Profit inspired three other Terps to score in double figures - seniors Duane Simpkins (20 points) and Johnny Rhodes (13) and junior Keith Booth (19). The victory moved Maryland into a fourth place tie in the conference and gave the Terps their third consecutive upper division ACC finish. Profit led a second half comeback with two free throws and a three-pointer on consecutive trips down the court to give the Terps the momentum they needed to close out the regular season on a high note and give Head Coach Gary Williams a 51st birthday present. Freshman Randell Jackson led the Seminoles with 15 points.

MARYLAND 79 GEORGIA TECH 84 March 9, 1996 ACC Tournament, Semifinal Round
Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, N.C.

Junior Keith Booth scored a career high 33 points and senior guard Johnny Rhodes added 20 but Maryland lost to Georgia Tech, 84-79, in the ACC tournament semifinals at the Greensboro Coliseum. Sophomore Matt Harpring led four players in double figures with 24 points and the backcourt duo of Drew Barry (18 points) and Stephon Marbury (17 points) as the Yellow Jackets advanced to the ACC Tournament finals for the third time in the last seven years. Maryland rallied from 18 points down in the first half and again rallied in the second half to cut a 14 point deficit to four with just under three minutes remaining, but could not get any closer. Booth's 33 points marked the third most ever by a Maryland player in the ACC Tournament.
