Maryland Beats Monmouth 71-38 For 9th Straight Win

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Nick Faust scored 16 points, Alex Len had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Maryland beat Monmouth 71-38 Wednesday night for its ninth straight victory.

It’s the Terrapins’ longest winning streak since they won 13 consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference games en route to capturing the national championship in 2002. The current run has come entirely against non-league foes.

Dez Wells scored 10 for the Terrapins (9-1), who never trailed in handing Monmouth (5-6) its third straight lopsided defeat. The Hawks were coming off a 19-point home loss to Navy and a 52-point setback at Syracuse.

Maryland shot 58 percent to offset a season-high 23 turnovers.

After Monmouth closed to 31-23 early in the second half, the Terrapins used a 17-4 run to pull away. Faust opened the spree with a 3-pointer and Len contributed eight points, including two dunks and a follow-shot.
