Purdue 67, Maryland 53

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Zach Edey had 23 points and 12 rebounds, and No. 1 Purdue cruised past Maryland 67-53 to snap the Terrapins’ 19-game home winning streak.

The Boilermakers (13-1, 2-1 Big Ten) won their sixth straight, having little difficulty with an offensively challenged Maryland team. Purdue hadn’t won at Maryland since 2017. Although the Terps (9-5, 1-2) hung tough defensively for a while, they couldn’t overcome shooting woes that have made this season a disappointment.

The Boilermakers took an 8-0 lead and forced Maryland to take an early timeout. The Terps managed only 19 points in the first half and trailed by 13 at the break. Purdue quickly pushed the lead to 22 in the second.

Jahmir Young scored 26 points for the Terps, the only Maryland player with more than nine.

Braden Smith scored 14 points for Purdue and Lance Jones added 11.
