No. 2 Duke falls to Maryland 83-81
Canes now have a 3 game lead in the ACC
Seth Allen broke a tie by making two free throws with 2.8 seconds left, and Maryland stunned No. 2 Duke 83-81 Saturday night to end a six-game skid against its bitter rival.
As the final horn sounded, thousands of fans from the sellout crowd charged onto the court to celebrate the Terrapins' biggest victory of the season.
The Terrapins (18-7, 6-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) did not trail after halftime but never could pull away from the weary Blue Devils.
Duke (22-3, 9-3) trailed by 10 with 3:39 left but pulled even when Rasheed Sulaimon made three foul shots with 16.7 seconds to go. Quinn Cook then fouled Allen as the freshman guard drove through the lane, and Allen made both shots.
Alex Len had 19 points and nine rebounds for Maryland, and Allen scored 16.
Duke had its six-game winning streak end. Seth Curry scored 25 and Cook added 18.
