Terps Fall Hard to 'Bama

The Terps put out one of their lowest offensive outputs in recent history, falling 64-42 to Alabama.

In one of the Terps' lowest offensive outputs in recent memory, Maryland fell to No. 15 Alabama Thursday by a score of 62-42.

Junior James Padgett led the team with nine points and redshirt freshman Ashton Pankey chipped in 10 rebounds.

The Terps shot an abysmal 13-for-49 (26.5%) from the field on the night, crumbling under a suffocating Alabama defense and their own inability to score.

The Alabama press gave Maryland some opportunities to convert early, but the young team failed to make the Crimson Tide pay.

After scoring a team-high 22 points in a season opening win against UNC-Wilmington, sophomore guard Terrell Stoglin went 0-for-9 from the field and netted all six points from the free throw line, where the team as a whole was 14-of-25 (56.0%).

The Terps got little to no production from their backcourt against Alabama, as Stoglin, freshman Nick Faust and senior Sean Mosley were a combined 2-for-23 from the field and combined for 10 of the 42 points.

While Maryland showed improvement in limiting their turnovers to a season-low nine, they struggled again in areas such as three-point shooting, where they were 2-of-12 (16.7%).

The Terps looked out of control and out of luck on Sunday, as the Alabama defense proved too much for the largely inexperienced and shorthanded Maryland team. Four walk-ons saw action Thursday in a game where there was no doubt who had control throughout.

Maryland (1-1, 0-0 ACC) will take on the loser of Colorado/Wichita St. tomorrow at 6:30 p.m.
