Terps Down Concordia, 75-42 In Exhibition
Nov. 7, 2007
James Clark scored 10 for Concordia, a Canadian team that lost by 18 to No. 17 Arizona on Sunday.
Maryland made only eight baskets in the first half, but limited Concordia to 4-for-27 shooting in taking a 26-10 lead. Nine different players scored for the Terrapins, a trend coach Gary Williams would no doubt love to see continue throughout the season.
Milbourne made the game's first three baskets and Gist followed with a pair of field goals to launch the rout. The Stingers missed their first 13 shots and committed seven turnovers before James Clark hit a short jumper to make it 12-2 with 11:24 left in the half.
Concordia didn't score again until Clark made two free throws with 7:10 to go. At that point, the Stingers were 1-for-20 from the field with nine turnovers.
The second half was more of the same. Vasquez and Milbourne each made a three-point play, and Gist contributed two free throws and a 3-pointer in an 11-2 surge that put the Terps up 37-12.
The margin swelled to 30 points with 13 minutes left. Maryland scored 49 points on 55 percent shooting in the second half.
