WASHINGTON (AP) — Dez Wells scored a career-high 25 points Sunday, and Maryland overcame 19 turnovers and poor outside shooting to pull away in the final minutes for a 69-62 win over suburban rival George Mason in the BB&T Classic.

The Terrapins (6-1) won despite making only four jump shots — and none in the second half. They rode the inside, penetration and fast-break games of Wells, Nick Faust (14 points) and Alex Len (12) and made 23 of 39 free throws to improve to 8-0 all-time against their neighbors from the Virginia side of Washington, D.C.

Sherrod Wright and Patrick Holloway scored 17 points apiece for the Patriots (5-3). The Colonial Athletic Association school is 4-25 vs. current members of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
