Maryland falls apart in second half against Virginia

Maryland suffered through one of its worst halves of basketball in quite some time Saturday against No. 22 Virginia, scoring just 13 points in the second half of a 71-44 Cavaliers victory.

John Feinstein writes that while Terrapins Coach Mark Turgeon is having a frustrating season, he’s not making any excuses.

Senior guard Sean Mosley, meanwhile, was a little more blunt than Turgeon, saying, “I feel like we didn’t give it our all.”

And here’s a photo gallery from the game.

Maryland now has four regular season games left: home against Miami, at Georgia Tech (which might be without suspended leading scorer Glen Rice Jr.), at No. 8 North Carolina and a home rematch with the Cavaliers.

Prediction time: How do you think Maryland will fare over those final five games?
