Following a sluggish start, Maryland came out firing on all cylinders in the second half, posting an easy 86-72 win over Niagara at the Comcast Center. The Terrapins appeared to be experiencing a let down early on, after highly emotional games against Duke and North Carolina over the weekend and were tied 35-35 against the undermanned Niagara squad at the half. The Terps woke up after intermission, outscoring the Purple Eagles 21-3 early on and coasted to the easy win. Nick Faust led five Terps in double figures with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Less than 5,000 were in attendance on the College Park campus, due in large part to students being away for spring break. Maryland hosts the winner of Denver-Ohio in second round play, time and date TBA.
