Maryland Loses In Sweet 16 To Kansas
Foul trouble and a poor shooting second half were too much for Maryland to overcome as they lose to Kansas 79-63. Diamond Stone, who averaged 12.7 points per game this season, spent long stretches of Thursday’s contest on the bench, including key moments of the second half, due to three personal fouls. Stone finished with just five points against the Jayhawks
The Terps also had no answer for Kansas’ Perry Ellis. The forward had a game high 27 points.
Maryland was led by Rasheed Sulaimon with 18 points and Melo Trimble with 17.
The Terps finish the season with a 27-9 record. It was their furthest run in the NCAA Tournament in 13 years.
