Florida State Seminoles lose 78-62 at Maryland Terrapins, fall three games back in ACC race

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Florida State's latest road loss to Maryland all but ruined its chances of winning its first ACC title, and certainly didn't help its NCAA Tournament hopes.

Freshman Terrell Stoglin had 17 points, Jordan Williams had 11 points and 11 rebounds and Maryland used a strong second half to beat the Seminoles 78-62 on Wednesday night.

FSU has lost eight straight at Maryland since February 2001. It last beat the Terps on the road when Maryland played at old Cole Field House.

Derwin Kitchen scored 16 and Deividas Dulkys 14 for the Seminoles (19-8, 9-4), who trail first-place Duke by three games with three games to play.

"We told our kids we're still alive," coach Leonard Hamilton said. "We still feel like we have enough games to go to put ourselves in good position."

FSU played a second straight game without junior forward Chris Singleton, who broke his foot Feb. 12 during a win over Virginia. Singleton is the only FSU player averaging double figures in scoring.

The Terrapins (18-10, 7-6) had five players in double figures. Dino Gregory scored 14, Adrian Bowie 12 and Sean Mosley 10.

Defense made the difference. Maryland forced 17 turnovers and held FSU to 39 percent shooting in the pivotal second half.

"We played great defense. I thought I played the best defense since I've been here in the second half," Williams said. "There was a stretch when I missed four layups in a row, but it didn't matter because we were playing such good defense."

FSU freshman Okara White had four points before fouling out, and fellow former Clearwater High standout Luke Loucks had five points.

    HOLIDAY — If Steve Miklos could have it his way, every power boat race would take place in rough water. He finds the turbulent conditions calming, an attitude he's developed during a professional power boat racing career that spans hundreds of races dating back to 1991.
