Juan Dixon lead all scores with 29 points, 10-for-19 from the field, including 4-for-7 from 3-point range, and 5-of-6 on free throws. He also had five rebounds, three assists and two steals.
"It's a great accomplishment, especially in my situation," Dixon said. "Coming into Maryland, a lot of people knocked Gary Williams for recruiting me. I just wanted to go out there and prove a lot of those critics wrong. I worked hard the last four years."
Chris Wilcox had 18 points and Lonny Baxter dropped in 16 as the Terps will next face fourth-seeded Kentucky on Friday in Syracuse, N.Y.
