UPDATE (10:36 a.m.): A Maryland athletics spokesman provided statistics from Wednesday night’s game and they’re different from the blurry box score shown below. Perhaps there was an official scorer’s issue, but the new stats were taken by the Terps themselves. Good thing these games don’t count.
According to Maryland, Allen had only 10 assists and shot 9 for 10 from the field, making all five three-pointers. Mitchell’s rebound total increased to 13 and Layman had just 14 points, not 16.
“We played a great opponent last night and our guys who traditionally don’t play many minutes played well and led us to a good win,” Coach Mark Turgeon said in the release. ”I am proud of the poise we displayed late in the game as we made some plays down the stretch to allow us to beat a good team.”
The release notes that Dez Wells sat out for precautionary reasons with a sore knee. Maryland has Thursday off before finishing the trip against the Grand Bahamas All-Stars on Friday at 11 a.m.
The original post is below. Apologies for the confusion and nitpicking the stats. Point is, Allen was lights-out.
Seth Allen never cooled off in the Maryland’s second exhibition game in the Bahamas, shooting a blistering
69 90 percent from the field — and 5 of 5 on three-pointers — to pace the Terrapins with 26 points in a 97-90 win over the Commonwealth Giants.
Allen, expected to serve as Maryland’s full-time starting point guard this season, also dished out
11 10 assists and committed just two turnovers, according to a box score provided on Twitter by his brother Brandon updated statistics provided by the Terps. Classmate Charles Mitchell added 12 points and 10 13 rebounds, while Jake Layman, who had 25 points in Tuesday night’s opener, added 16 14 points on 6 of 8 shooting.
Evan Smotrycz had 11 points and Nick Faust added 10. Coach Mark Turgeon started three walk-ons and two freshmen in Varun Ram, Spencer Barks, Jake Susskind, Damonte Dodd and Roddy Peters. Peters, Ram and Susskind were a combined 4 of 18 from the field, but Dodd added 12 points on 6 of 8 shooting.
Some other tidbits:
>> Maryland shot just 13 of 22 (59 percent) from the free-throw line.
>> Smotrycz, in just over a team-high 25 minutes, committed five turnovers. The Terps had 24 as a team; Layman, Peters and Susskind had four apiece.
>> Allen also had four steals.
>> The game was tied 62-62 after three quarters.
>> Layman had a pretty balanced outing with seven assists and six rebounds.
The original box score, on which these now possibly dubious statistics were based, is below.
