Terps rout Wisconsin, Kentucky Next

Juan Dixon scored 29 points not only to lead his Terps past Wisconsin 87-57 Sunday in the second round of the East Regional, but also broke two school scoring records doing so.

Dixon broke Len Bias' school record for career points and eclipsed Bias' mark for career points in the NCAA Tournament. Dixon has 2,172 points overall and 197 in his four trips to the tourney.

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.
