Virginia Beats Maryland 71-44

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Mike Scott scored 25 points and No. 22 Virginia took command with a 16-0 run early in the second half and beat Maryland 71-44 on Saturday.

Malcolm Brogdon added 14 points and Sammy Zeglinski 11 for the Cavaliers (20-6, 7-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), who ended their first two-game losing streak of the season.

Terrell Stoglin scored 14 points, all in the first half, and Nick Faust had 13 for Maryland (15-11, 5-7). The Terps stayed in the game by making seven 3-pointers in the first half, but managed just 13 points after halftime as they misfired on 19 of 24 shots.

Maryland broke a 31-all halftime tie on a jumper by James Padgett to start the second half, then went 8:18 without a point as Virginia took control. Joe Harris hit two jumpers and Scott scored the next seven points. When Harris capped the 16-0 burst with another jumper, it was 47-33.
