Faust scores 18 as Maryland beats Clemson 72-59

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Sophomore Nick Faust had a season-high
18 points and Maryland won its fourth consecutive game over
Clemson, 72-59 on Saturday.

Freshmen Jake Layman and Shaquille Cleare scored 12 and 10
points, respectively, for the Terrapins (19-8, 7-7 Atlantic
Coast Conference), who are 16-2 at home.

Devin Booker scored 16 points for Clemson (13-13, 5-9), reaching
double figures for the 11th time in 14 conference games. Jordan
Roper also had 13 points and Milton Jennings scored 10 for the
Tigers, who haven't beaten Maryland since 2010.

The Terrapins outrebounded Clemson 39-29, matching their plus-10
average rebounding margin for the season, second best in the
NCAA. Maryland, however, made just 6 of 16 free throws (37.5

A 3-pointer by Faust with 11:52 left in the first half gave the
Terrapins an 18-16 lead, their first since they led 4-3 in the
opening minute. The Terrapins stayed in control and a strong
layup by Cleare gave them a 10-point advantage, 32-22, with 5:52

The Tigers cut the margin to 35-32 at the break on consecutive
3-pointers by Adonis Filer and Roper in the closing minutes.
Maryland, however, extended its lead to 44-35 on a jumper by
Cleare and a 3-pointer by Faust with 15:54 left in the game.

Maryland continued to pull away and Alex Len provided a 56-40
lead when he made a free throw after he was fouled while
converting a layup with 11:20 remaining. The Tigers could not
cut the lead into single-digits the rest of the way.

Former Maryland coach Charles "Lefty" Driesell was honored at
halftime. Driesell, who coached the Terrapins from 1969 to 1986,
compiled a 348-159 record, won an ACC title and led the
Terrapins to eight NCAA tournament appearances. The Maryland
athletics department will also dedicate a bronze bas-relief of
Driesell in a ceremony at Comcast Center on April 16.
