No. 4 Maryland rallies for 72-61 win over No. 18 Purdue

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Wrapping up a stretch of four tough games in 10 days, No. 4 Maryland switched into survival mode late in a Big Ten matchup with No. 18 Purdue.

Down 51-47 with 6 minutes left, the Terrapins cranked up the defense and turned to Rasheed Sulaimon and Robert Carter Jr. on the offensive end.

The strategy worked. During an afternoon in which two of its most dependable players struggled to score, Maryland pulled out a 72-61 victory Saturday.

"We just keep figuring out ways to win," coach Mark Turgeon said.
