Terps Down Duke in Senior Night Thriller

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Greivis Vasquez saved his best for last. Vasquez scored 20 points, including a clutch basket with 37 seconds left, and No. 22 Maryland beat fourth-ranked Duke 79-72 Wednesday night to move into a tie with the Blue Devils atop the Atlantic Coast Conference standings.

It was the final home game for Vasquez, who was honored with seniors Landon Milbourne and Eric Hayes before the game.

Afterward, all three were mobbed with their teammates as fans rushed the court to celebrate Maryland’s first win over Duke in seven tries.
