EKU falls on road, 83-72 at Maryland

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Greivis Vasquez scored 20 points in an
unwanted reserve role, Landon Milbourne had 19, and Maryland
outlasted stubborn Eastern Kentucky 83-72 on Saturday.
Eric Hayes added 16 points for Maryland (6-3). The Terrapins
never trailed, but couldn't pull away from the pesky Colonels (7-3)
until Hayes hit a 3-pointer to spark a game-ending 11-4 run.
Vasquez began the game on the bench after showing up late for
the morning shootaround. The senior guard had started 80 straight
games, a streak launched during his freshman season.
Vasquez entered with 14:14 left in the first half. He scored 13
points after halftime, including a huge 3-pointer that put Maryland
up 68-62 with 6:18 remaining.
Justin Stommes led Eastern Kentucky with 16 points. The Colonels
placed five players in double figures.
