No. 13 Clemson Defeats Maryland, 93-64
The Tigers (21-4, 7-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) bounced back from a puzzling loss to Virginia two days earlier with their second conference win of 27 points or more this season.
Landon Milbourne scored 13 points to lead the Terrapins (16-9, 5-6), who could be on their way to missing the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in five years.
Clemson never trailed after the first 6 minutes of the game, and went on a 43-17 run that started from the last minute of the first half. Eight Tigers scored during the run, but the team seemed to feed off Booker, doing things not usually expected from a big man like throwing a no-look pass for an assist or stepping back and burying a 3-pointer that put Clemson up by 10 points with 16 minutes to go.
