College Park, MD–

While the final score may look a bit closer in the box, the Terps game against Binghamton tonight was simply not even close the entire game.

The Terps (3-0) were led again by Julian Rice with 19 points.

Reese and Jahmir Young combined for the first eight points of the game, and a Reese jumper made it 31-8 with just under six minutes to go in the first half. Hart’s layup made it 44-23 at the half.

Binghamton briefly cut the deficit to 19 early in the second half, but a 14-4 run had it at 65-33 just past the midway point.

The defensive intensity was just too much even out of the gate for Binghamton. Their three turnovers in the first two minutes showed how the defense was going to smother the Binghamton offense.

Binghamton had just one of its starters, John McGriff in double figures with 12 points.

“I think we played a very solid game defensively, but they did hit a couple of baskets late in the second half to pull a bit closer, but Julian hit a couple buckets late in the game that made the difference tonight, said Terps Head Coach Kevin Willard.

One big notable stat of the night came from the Terps shooting from long range. They were just 4 for 20 from deep. Something that Willard says they will have to get better at before the Big Ten Conference schedule gets going.

The Terps had a 42-38 rebounding advantage, mostly converting on Binghamton’s 19 percent from long range.
