COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Sean Mosley scored 19 points, Alex Len had 15 points and nine rebounds and Maryland beat Cornell 70-62 Tuesday night.

Terrell Stoglin added 14 points and four assists for the Terrapins (10-3), who scored the game's first 16 points but had to hang on late for their seventh consecutive victory. After the Big Red closed to 47-46, Len -- a 7-foot-1 freshman -- made a pair of three-point plays in an 8-4 spree that helped put momentum back on Maryland's side.

But the outcome wasn't decided until Stoglin hit a 3-pointer with 1:49 left and Pe'Shon Howard followed two Cornell misfires with a pair of foul shots for a 66-60 lead with 31.8 seconds remaining.

Chris Wroblewski scored 15 for Cornell (4-9) and Devin Cherry added 14. The Big Red have lost five straight, all on the road, where they are 0-8 this season.
