LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Greivis Vasquez and Dave Neal each scored 17 points, and unranked Maryland hustled its way to an 80-62 upset of Michigan State (No. 6 ESPN/USA Today, No. 5 AP) on Thursday at the Old Spice Classic.
After falling behind by three early in the first half, the Terrapins (4-0) countered with a 23-5 run to take the lead for good.
FULLERTON, California (Ticker) - For the first time this season, 24th-ranked Wake Forest was put to the test. The Demon Deacons survived it, remaining unbeaten with a 75-69 victory over Cal State-Fullerton in the 76 Classic on Thursday.
Wake Forest had put together three straight blowouts to open the season, but the Titans wouldn't go away quietly. Freshman guard Jacques Streeter buried back-to-back 3-pointers late in the second half and Marcio Lassiter followed with a layup to cut the deficit to 64-61 with just over three minutes remaining.
