Maryland Falls to Georgia Tech 78-68

Maryland Terrapins Maryland Falls to Georgia Tech 78 68The road woes continue for Maryland as the Terrapins fell to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Wednesday night by a final score of 78-68.

The defeat left the Terps 1-6 in road games in the ACC.  Maryland (19-9, 7-8) boasts a 15-2 record at home, but their road issues represent a serious obstacle to their NCAA tournament hopes.

“It’s tough,” said Maryland coach Mark Turgeon. “I’m more disappointed in our intelligence on the defensive end than the offensive end. We got in a panic mode offensively, tried to score quickly. We missed a lot of open shots. Our guys who are supposed to make shots didn’t make them. That might not change the outcome, but we missed some open shots. Just didn’t play very well.

“We had seven or eight guys who really tried hard – but the decision making is tough. It’s hard. It wears you out.”

Dez Wells led Maryland with 15 points and Alex Len had 13 points and nine rebounds. Seth Allen had 12 points.

“It’s not the coaches’ fault. Coaches can’t play for us,” said Maryland’s Shaquille Cleare. “It’s the team’s fault. We need to find ways to defend teams. We need to play better. It’s tough losing on the road, but to be a great team, you have to win on the road.”

The Terps will play two of their final three regular-season games on the road, starting with Saturday’s trip to Wake Forest.
