EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) Down 14 at halftime, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon decided his team needed a pep talk. His message? The second half would change the season.
Overstatement or not, the Terrapins played the rest of the way as if they had everything riding on it.
Jalen Smith scored a career-high 25 points, and No. 17 Maryland rallied to beat Northwestern 77-66 on Tuesday night.
