COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Marylands fast start was more than enough to make up for a sluggish second half on Saturday.Justin Jackson scored 19 points and fellow freshman Kevin Huerter added a career-high 14 as the Terrapins never trailed in a 66-56 victory over Saint Peters.Maryland (10-1) shot 68.4 percent from the floor in the first half as it won its second all-time meeting with the Peacocks. The Terps led by as many as 25 in the second half, but scored only 16 points in the final 14:22.It was kind of a boring game, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. They were using 30 seconds even though they were down 20, 25. Our guys kind of got caught up in it and we didnt finish the game the way we would have liked.Chazz Patterson led Saint Peters (4-5) with 13 points. Forward Quadir Welton, who was averaging a team-high 16 points for the Peacocks, was held to five points on 2 of 11 shooting against the Terps.Maryland opened on a 14-0 run, and Saint Peters didnt score its first points until 11:56 remained in the first half. The Peacocks never cut the margin to less than 10 the rest of the way.I thought for a noon game, they didnt come out sleepwalking, Saint Peters coach John Dunne said. I thought they might have. I thought their energy level was really, really good. They got real physical with us to start the game.Saint Peters trailed 61-40 with 4:26 to play before closing the game with a 16-5 spurt.In situations like that, you cant let it get to 24, Dunne said. You have to keep in the mid-teens so if you do make a run late, its a little more within striking distance.The Terps held a 14-5 scoring advantage off turnovers despite forcing Saint Peters into only 10 giveaways.It was Marylands first wire-to-wire victory against a Division I team this season and its third triumph in a row.Were getting there in a lot of aspects, but we have to shore up some things, Turgeon said. Heading into Christmas, hopefully we can improve and play better Monday and get better during finals with practice. Our guys will compete when they need to compete, and thats really whats important.BIG PICTURESaint Peters: The Peacocks continued their all-or-little trend on offense. Theyve scored at least 80 points in all four of their victories, and have not surpassed 65 points in any of their five losses.Maryland: The Terrapins havent enjoyed many lopsided victories this season but were never in any trouble against the Peacocks as they became the first 10-win team in the Big Ten.STAT OF THE NIGHTGuard Melo Trimble passed Joe Smith on Marylands career scoring list. The junior ranks 27th in school history with 1,291 points, one more than the 1995 national player of the year.HUERTER HEATS UPMaryland freshman Kevin Huerter made three 3-pointers in the first half, a welcome sign for a team that entered the day ranked 298th in the country in 3-point percentage at .305. The Terps were 7 of 18 (38.9 percent) from the outside against Saint Peters.UP NEXTSaint Peters does not play for another eight days as it enters its final exam period.

Even though the Big 12 announced that its decision not to expand was unanimous, sources told ESPN on Tuesday there were schools that ultimately agreed to go along with the plan when it became obvious the conference would not reach the supermajority needed to expand.In a 714-word league memo covering the leagues talking points, obtained by ESPN, the first two items instructed officials to Indicate the Board arrived at a Unanimous Consensus and say the Board was unanimous in its desire and commitment to stay at 10 members.The internal Big 12 memo also suggested conference officials not indicate that TV influenced [its] decision and that the Big 12 was not psychologically disadvantaged because it didnt expand.Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby and Oklahoma president David Boren announced Monday night that the conference was no longer considering expansion. The Big 12 required approval from eight of its 10 schools if it wanted to expand, although no such votes were taken, Bowlsby said.The Big 12 initially considered 19 schools and that list was trimmed to 11 -- Air Force, BYU, UCF, Cincinnati, Colorado State, UConn, Houston, Rice, South Florida, SMU and Tulane -- all of which conducted in-person meetings with conference officials in Dallas last month.Despite a number of schools favoring expansion, Bowlsby and Boren said the decision not to expand was unanimous.When presidents get in a room and read the tea leaves that its going the way its going, they go with it, a source told ESPN. Even if there were 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 [schools in favor of expansion], those presidents are very skilled in seeing the inevitability of the outcome and aligning on the right side of history. Its pretty easy to get comfortable with that position and stick to it.The memo issued by the Big 12 instructed league officials not to repeat what Boren said last year, when he told the OU Daily that I believe that we [the Big 12] are psychologically disadvantaged because we are a smaller conference.ddddddddddddThe conference also provided a number of message points, which recommended not discussing individual schools and quashing any conversation that the Big 12 is dysfunctional. Other message points touted the strength of the conference -- it won three NCAA titles and had six runner-up finishes last year in all sports -- and that the leagues revenue is at an all-time high and projected to reach $40 million per school.The memo issued by the Big 12 indicated to league members several dos and donts when discussing the decision on not to expand.Do:? Indicate the Board arrived at a Unanimous Consensus.? [Say] the Board was unanimous in its desire and commitment to stay at 10 members.? Refer to the conference as equal to our peer group.? Revenue alone does not win championships.? We are not going to publicly discuss consideration details.? We were exhaustive in our research.? We have the most competitive competition model in college sports.? Refer to 2024-25 as an opportunity to explore the media landscape and how to use new technologies to deliver content to our fans.? The sunset of our Grant of Rights agreements allows the Conference to be in an active marketplace.? Expansion is no longer an active agenda item.Dont:? Say we are at a competitive disadvantage.? Say revenue determines strength.? Say expansion is dilutive.? Say candidates were not deemed Power 5 worthy.? Refer to any specific expansion candidate/school by name.? Indicate that TV influenced decision.? [Say] we are psychologically disadvantaged.? Discuss 2024-25 as a grant of rights issues. ' ' '
