COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Jordan Williams had 12 points and 11 rebounds for his eighth straight double-double, and Maryland used an early 22-0 run to blow past Colgate 95-40 on Tuesday night.
Williams' string of double-doubles is four short of the school record, set by Len Elmore in the 1973-74 season. Williams, a 6-foot-10 sophomore forward, has reached double figures in both points and rebounds in 12 of 14 games this season.Adrian Bowie scored 16 points and freshman guard Terrell Stoglin had 12 in his first college start for the Terrapins (10-4). Cliff Tucker and Dino Gregory also scored 12 for Maryland, which next faces top-ranked Duke on the road Sunday night.Joe Hoban scored 10 for the Raiders (1-12), who were coming off a win over Longwood. Colgate has lost to Duke, Syracuse and Maryland by a combined 164 points.Colgate made the game's first basket -- a jumper by Pat Moore -- but started 1 for 16 from the field with two turnovers and fell hopelessly behind, 22-2.Bowie scored six points in the first six minutes, and Stoglin added five points and an assist during the 22-point run.Colgate ended its scoring drought at 9:17 in the first half when Yaw Gyawu made a layup. That sparked a 6-0 run, but Maryland answered with a 14-2 spurt that made it 36-10.The Raiders shot 7 for 34 before halftime, including 1 for 9 from beyond the arc. Although Colgate trailed 45-17 at the break, it wasn't as bad as their first-half performance at Syracuse, when they were outscored 46-8 in what turned out to be a 100-43 blowout.
Colgate is 1-12 this season so it's no surprise that some traditionally strong teams had its way with the school. The Raiders have lost 3 games to Duke, Syracuse and Maryland by a whopping 164 combined points.
