Maryland men’s basketball hosts the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers in its third game of the season this afternoon.
The Terps trounced the Navy Midshipmen Friday, 82-52. Darryl Morsell and Galin Smith each knocked down 6-of-6 shots, with the duo scoring a total of 27 points. Eric Ayala had a 15-point day, Aaron Wiggins had 14 and Hakim Hart set his career-high with 11 points. Donta Scott, Jairus Hamilton and Morsell all finished the afternoon with five boards.
Maryland shot 8-of-15 from 3-point range and has converted 47.4% of its shots from downtown over its first two games. Last season, the team converted just 31.1% of its attempts from behind the arc.
Mount St. Mary’s was edged by Navy Saturday afternoon in Xfinity Center, 73-67, to push the Mountaineers back to .500. After an 18-point performance in the Mount’s season-opening win at Morgan State, senior guard Jalen Gibbs knocked down four three-pointers en route to his 16 points yesterday. Five-foot-eight guard Damian Chong Qui, one of five players selected to the preseason All-NEC team, led the team with 18 points.
The Terps and Mountaineers last met in 2018, when Bruno Fernando’s 21 points led Maryland to a 92-77 victory.
