COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Marylands fast start was more than enough to make up for a sluggish second half on Saturday.Justin Jackson scored 19 points and fellow freshman Kevin Huerter added a career-high 14 as the Terrapins never trailed in a 66-56 victory over Saint Peters.Maryland (10-1) shot 68.4 percent from the floor in the first half as it won its second all-time meeting with the Peacocks. The Terps led by as many as 25 in the second half, but scored only 16 points in the final 14:22.It was kind of a boring game, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. They were using 30 seconds even though they were down 20, 25. Our guys kind of got caught up in it and we didnt finish the game the way we would have liked.Chazz Patterson led Saint Peters (4-5) with 13 points. Forward Quadir Welton, who was averaging a team-high 16 points for the Peacocks, was held to five points on 2 of 11 shooting against the Terps.Maryland opened on a 14-0 run, and Saint Peters didnt score its first points until 11:56 remained in the first half. The Peacocks never cut the margin to less than 10 the rest of the way.I thought for a noon game, they didnt come out sleepwalking, Saint Peters coach John Dunne said. I thought they might have. I thought their energy level was really, really good. They got real physical with us to start the game.Saint Peters trailed 61-40 with 4:26 to play before closing the game with a 16-5 spurt.In situations like that, you cant let it get to 24, Dunne said. You have to keep in the mid-teens so if you do make a run late, its a little more within striking distance.The Terps held a 14-5 scoring advantage off turnovers despite forcing Saint Peters into only 10 giveaways.It was Marylands first wire-to-wire victory against a Division I team this season and its third triumph in a row.Were getting there in a lot of aspects, but we have to shore up some things, Turgeon said. Heading into Christmas, hopefully we can improve and play better Monday and get better during finals with practice. Our guys will compete when they need to compete, and thats really whats important.BIG PICTURESaint Peters: The Peacocks continued their all-or-little trend on offense. Theyve scored at least 80 points in all four of their victories, and have not surpassed 65 points in any of their five losses.Maryland: The Terrapins havent enjoyed many lopsided victories this season but were never in any trouble against the Peacocks as they became the first 10-win team in the Big Ten.STAT OF THE NIGHTGuard Melo Trimble passed Joe Smith on Marylands career scoring list. The junior ranks 27th in school history with 1,291 points, one more than the 1995 national player of the year.HUERTER HEATS UPMaryland freshman Kevin Huerter made three 3-pointers in the first half, a welcome sign for a team that entered the day ranked 298th in the country in 3-point percentage at .305. The Terps were 7 of 18 (38.9 percent) from the outside against Saint Peters.UP NEXTSaint Peters does not play for another eight days as it enters its final exam period. The Peacocks will play their last two games before Christmas in the New York area --- at home Dec. 18 against Elon and at St. Francis Brooklyn on Dec. 23.Maryland has a quick turnaround as it plays host to Jacksonville State on Monday.
