Morgan State Routed by the University of Maryland

Sophomore guard Jake Layman scored a career-high 27 points to lead the Maryland Terrapins to an easy 89-62 victory over the Morgan State University Bears on Nov. 29 at the Comcast Center in College Park, Md.

It was the sixth time in seven tries that Maryland defeated Morgan State; the Bears upset Maryland, 66-65, during the 2009 season.

Morgan State got off to a strong start and led 5-3 early, but Maryland eventually got hot and went on an 11-0 run to take control of the game. The Terps never trailed after the first two minutes and eventually led by 14 points at halftime; they pushed the lead to more than 20 points in the second half.

Layman was 9-of-12 from the field and 7-for-10 from the 3-point line. Junior forward Evan Smotrycz scored a double-double for Maryland with 19 points and 12 rebounds.

Senior center Ian Chiles led Morgan State with 17 points while senior guard Justin Black added 13 points.

“What I take out of this loss, is that our guys did not stop playing,” Morgan State head coach Todd Bozeman told reporters after the game. “I told them it’s a long season, and I told them to keep running our offense, because we have to get better at it.”

Maryland advanced to 5-2 while Morgan State dropped to 1-7.

Morgan State will face Howard (2-7) on Dec. 7 at the Hill Field House in Baltimore, Md.
