COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Robert Carter Jr. and Rasheed Sulaimon each scored 17 points, and No. 8 Maryland used a late charge to beat No. 3 Iowa 74-68 on Thursday night, ending the Hawkeyes' nine-game winning streak.
The Terrapins led 62-60 before freshman center Diamond Stone dunked off a pass from Jake Layman with 1:24 left. After a steal on the other end by Melo Trimble, Jared Nickens made a layup for a six-point lead.
Maryland (18-3, 7-2 Big Ten) made the margin stand up by making eight free throws over the final 49 seconds. Coming off a defeat at Michigan State on Saturday, the Terrapins improved to 10-0 following a loss over the last two seasons.
Peter Jok scored 14 points for the Hawkeyes (16-4, 7-1), who lost for the first time since Dec. 10. Adam Woodbury had 11 points and 10 rebounds before fouling out with 2:47 left.
Hawkeyes star Jarrod Uthoff, who entered with a Big Ten-leading 18.9 points per game average, missed all five of his field goal attempts in the first half and finished with nine points on 2-for-13 shooting.
The defeat comes in Iowa's first game since climbing to No. 3 in the rankings, its highest position since 1987.
Iowa went 5 for 24 from 3-point range, 3 for 15 in the second half.
Maryland shot even worse. The Terrapins were 9 for 27 from the floor after halftime and missed all 10 of their 3-point tries over the final 20 minutes.
Trimble and Layman both scored 11 points.
Iowa scored the first seven points of the second half to take a 42-41 lead, but Maryland answered with a 6-0 spree.
The score remained close because neither team shot particularly well. Iowa went more than five minutes without a point, and the Terrapins missed 12 of their first 14 shots from the floor in the second half.
Maryland led 57-56 when Sulaimon made a layup and was fouled. He missed the free throw, but the Terrapins grabbed three straight offensive rebounds before Damonte Dodd was fouled and made one of two for a four-point cushion with 4:34 remaining.
Iowa cut the gap to a basket, but could not get closer.
Sulaimon scored 11 points, and the Terrapins hit six 3-pointers to take a 41-35 halftime lead.
Despite shooting 50 percent from the floor (14 for 28), the Hawkeyes spent much of the half playing from behind.
Maryland led 17-9 before the Hawkeyes used a 10-2 run to pull even. After the Terps went back in front, Iowa scored six straight points to move ahead 29-28.
Suliamon and Trimble responded with 3 pointers to spark an 11-2 spurt that made it 39-31.
