Freshman lifts Terps in Big Ten warmup

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Maryland center Diamond Stone is finding his scoring touch just in time for his Big Ten debut.

The freshman continued his strong play Sunday, scoring 16 as the fourth-ranked Terrapins pulled away for an 87-67 victory over Marshall.

"He makes it look so easy," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said of Stone, who was 8-of-10 from the field.

Forward Robert Carter added 19 points as Maryland (11-1) shook off 19 turnovers and countered Marshall's perimeter-focused offense with a heavy emphasis on inside play.

"That was our plan," Turgeon said. "I thought we shot too many jump shots early. But we settled down."

After a sluggish start to the season, Stone has scored in double figures in his past five games. The McDonald's All-America has done it primarily coming off the bench, he says, for the first time "since fourth grade."

NO. 5 TEXAS 83, SAM HOUSTON ST. 49: Lashann Higgs scored 17 and had a season-high eight assists for the host Longhorns (11-0), who won their 25th straight regular-season nonconference game.
