COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Though it appeared to be nothing more than another early-season blowout for Maryland, there was reason to believe the Terrapins may ultimately benefit from the fashion in which the victory was secured.Michal Cekovsky scored 16 points in his third career start, Jaylen Brantley added 14 in a reserve role and Maryland eased past Howard 79-56 Wednesday night.Cekovsky went 8 for 9 from the floor in tying his career high for points, set earlier this season against Kansas State. The 7-foot-1 junior also blocked three shots.Cekovsky started at center for senior Damonte Dodd, who has a sprained left MCL and will be sidelined for at least two more games before being re-evaluated. Dodd leads the team with 17 blocked shots.I talk to Ceko more than anybody and coach him harder than anybody on the team, coach Mark Turgeon said. Theres a lot of potential there. He can really score. Hes one of our better defenders, but his timing is not there yet.Thats because the Slovakian is still working his way back from a foot injury that sidelined him for the first four games.Brantley, meanwhile, drilled four 3-pointers on a night the Terrapins received just 10 points from standout guard Melo Trimble.Weve got good players, weve got good scorers, Turgeon said. Of all three years since hes been here, I think he trusts these guys the most.Maryland (9-1) led by seven at halftime, upped the margin to 17 with 15:57 remaining and cruised to the finish.Hopefully, tonight gives a lot of guys confidence and we become a deeper basketball team, Turgeon saidWe were much better in the second half, Turgeon conceded.Charles Williams scored 21 for Howard (1-6) and Solomon Mangham had 16.Howard was without high-scoring guard James Daniel, who has yet to play this season because of sprained left ankle. He led the NCAA in scoring last season, averaging 27 points per game, and was the player of the year in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.To make matters worse, leading scorer James Miller was injured early in the game and finished with no points on 0-for-5 shooting.Obviously, when Miller went out, it was deflating to our group of guys, coach Kevin Nickelberry said. He thought he could go but he just couldnt.Maryland led 18-13 before Mangham scored nine straight points to put the Bison up 22-19. Minutes later, a layup by Cekovsky and a 2-pointer by Trimble sparked an 11-0 run that helped the Terrapins take a 38-31 lead at the break.Early in the second half, Cekovsky made a layup and a dunk in a 7-0 spurt that enabled Maryland to move in front 47-33.In the second half we really shot the ball, turned the ball over less, the defense was better and our rebounding was good, Turgeon said.INSIDE OUTThe plan for Maryland was to work the ball inside and shoot the 3 after the defense sagged. So what happened? Fourteen of the Terps first 19 shots were from long range.We watched a lot of film and one of our keys was to play inside out, Turgeon said. Our guys werent doing it. That was the disappointing part. I had to go in at halftime and yell.Maryland scored 18 points in the paint over the final 20 minutes and shot 53 percent from the floor.THE BIG PICTUREHoward: The Bison are simply trying to hang in there until Daniel returns. The 5-foot-10 senior is expected to be out for another 2/3 weeks.Maryland: Turgeon went deep through his bench to get playing time for 10 players in the first half alone. If nothing else, the Terrapins learned how to play well together and effectively without help from Trimble, their go-to guy in virtually every tight situation.UP NEXTHoward: The Bison face their fourth straight Washington-area opponent, George Washington, on Saturday night.Maryland: The Terrapins are at home Saturday afternoon against St. Josephs, which lost to Houston Baptist 62-47 Wednesday.

Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. Youth Turkey Jerseys . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Its been a month since Syracuse coach Dino Babers delivered a stirring postgame locker room speech that went viral on social media after the most important victory of his first year with the Orange.But since that upset win over then-No. 17 Virginia Tech, Our house! has become Their house. Syracuse lost its next home game -- 35-20 last week to North Carolina State to fall to 2/3 in the Carrier Dome. Now, the Orange have a chance to reclaim their house and send their seniors out with a victory when they close their home schedule on Saturday against No. 17 Florida State (7-3, 4-3 ACC, No. 17 CFP).Its an important game for both teams.The Seminoles have won four of five and are striving to keep the momentum going to reach an upper-tier bowl game, while the Orange (4-6, 2-4 ACC) are simply trying to qualify for the postseason with only two games left in the regular season.I dont settle for anything. Im not going to settle, Babers said. So, there is no bone in my body that says, hey, Im looking forward to next year. My whole task is finding ... a way to win now. And if we cant, then at least we know we did everything we can possibly do.Syracuse has been hit hard by injuries, and starting quarterback Eric Dungey tops the list. Sidelined by a hard shoulder-head hit two weeks ago in a 54-0 loss at Clemson, he was listed as questionable against N.C. State, did not play, and was still awaiting results of a second battery of tests. Hes listed as doubtful for Florida State.The Seminoles arent taking any chances.Weve got to anticipate Dungey will play, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. You have to anticipate for Dungey to play, and you have to look at the other guys and prepare for them. It makes it difficult.Other things to know when No. 17 Florida State plays at Syracuse on Saturday:COOKS CORNER: FSU tailback Dalvin Cook needs just 19 yards to eclipse Warrick Dunns 20-year-old record (3,959 yards) and become the schools career leading rusher. He also needs 59 yard to reach 4,000, which would make him the sixth back in ACC history to accomplish the feat and the first as a junior.Ive been thinking about it all week. Theyve been reminding me in the locker room, Cook said. HHopefully, we get it over with fast.ddddddddddddCook has 19 career 100-yard games, and the first came two years ago in the Carrier Dome against the Orange. He rushed for 122 yards and one TD on 23 carries and still calls it his coming-out game.SUPER SUB: Last year Syracuse walk-on QB Zack Mahoney started four games in place of Dungey, who suffered at least one concussion and was hit hard several times. Mahoney played so well, especially against LSU and Clemson, that he was awarded a scholarship for this season. He did OK against the Wolfpack, finishing 13 of 24 for 190 yards and one touchdown with an interception.I think Zack played extremely well, Babers said. Its not about what Zack does for our football team. Its what the other 21 guys have to do. Anytime you lose a person of Erics caliber, you dont expect the back-up guy to come up and play at that same level.DEFENSE RULES: FSU is coming off a dominant defensive performance in a 45-7 win over Boston College . The starters held BC scoreless and allowed just 86 total yards (57 rushing, 29 passing), and three first downs while forcing nine straight 3-and-outs.I think we have a high ceiling, LB Matthew Thomas said. We go out there, play how we want to play. Syracuse, they shouldnt score on us if we do what we want to do, so its all on us.RECEIVERS EMERGING: Auden Tate (101 yards vs. Boston College) and Nyqwan Murray (153 yards vs. N.C. State) have started to emerge as viable passing options in the Seminoles offense. With Jesus Wilson out for the remainder of the season, both sophomores have seen their snaps increase and could have big games against a Syracuse secondary that is 13th in passing defense in the ACC. Florida State has had four players with 100-yard receiving games this season.RED ZONE SUCCESS: Florida State has converted its last 19 opportunities in the red zone, including 15 touchdowns.---AP Sports Writer Joe Reedy in Florida contributed to this report.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Kekis on Twitter: www.twitter.com/Greek1947 China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL China Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys ' ' '
