Maryland Defeats North Carolina State, 71-60

Greivis Vasquez scored 21 of his 33 points in the second half to help Maryland beat North Carolina State 71-60 on Sunday night.

Dave Neal added 11 points for the Terrapins (18-10, 7-7 Atlantic Coast Conference), who have won four of six games as they make a late-season push for a bid to the NCAA tournament. Maryland led most of the way, but needed a late push to take the lead for good with about 7 1/2 minutes left.

Tracy Smith scored 19 points to lead the Wolfpack (15-12, 5-9), who remained winless against Maryland in four tries under third-year coach Sidney Lowe.
