In their lone exhibition prior to the beginning of their 2012-13 season, the University of Maryland beat the Indiana University of Pennsylvania 73-61.
The Division II Crimson Hawks were coming off of a competitive 69-54 loss to Pittsburgh last week. Maryland’s starting lineup – Howard, Faust, Layman, Padgett, and Len – was not a surprise, and was what we have been projecting. Mitchell and Allen started the 2nd half though, and both Freshman had excellent games.
4) Padgett, who had dunked his first opportunity, did not finish an easy look with MD up 18-14. After the dunk, he missed his next 4 attempts. The Senior did not look like he was going to be positioned to hold off Mitchell from starting.
