BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Juwan Morgan scored 10 of his 25 points during Indiana's decisive late run Monday night, leading the Hoosiers to a 71-68 victory over Maryland.
Robert Johnson had 12 points and eight rebounds as the Hoosiers (12-8, 5-3 Big Ten) closed out the game on a 14-6 spurt to win their fourth straight at home.
Both had a chance to tie the game in the closing seconds but Cowan's 3-pointer bounced high off the rim with six seconds left and, after Indiana's Zach McRoberts missed two free throws, Huerter's half-court heave fell short.
After going more than 6 1/2 minutes without a basket in the second half, the Terrapins used a 9-0 run to charge back and take a 62-57 lead with 4:53 left.
But Indiana scored seven straight and retook a 64-62 lead on Johnson's layup with 3:18 left. Bruno Fernando missed a majority of the second half with an ankle injury.
Maryland will return to the XFINITY Center in its next game for a matchup with No. 6 Michigan State.
