For those who put Maryland in the Sweet 16... our sincerest condolences. 

No. 3 seed LSU beat No. 6 seed UMD 69-67 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday afternoon. 

With under 30 seconds remaining, Jalen Smith’s 3-point jump shot tied the teams again at 67-67, which stuck for another 25 seconds. LSU’s Tremont Waters’ layup broke that tie and gave the Tigers the win, ending the Terrapins’ hopes of a Sweet 16 game in Washington, D.C.. 

Only three minutes into the game, LSU’s Dorius Days drained a 3-pointer and broke the 4-4 tie, commencing the catch-up game that Maryland was forced to play in the first half, which ended 38-29 LSU.

In the last quarter of the game, the Terps (finally) caught up enough to fight neck-in-neck until the final buzzer. With four minutes remaining, Smith made a 2-point turnaround hook shot to tie up the game 55-55. Under a minute later, Smith’s two free throws gave Maryland the first lead of the game at 57-55. 

Smith racked up the most points for the Terps (15), and LSU’s Skylar Mays had the most for the Tigers (16). UMD shot 33.3 percent, and LSU shot 36.9 percent. Maryland out-rebounded Louisiana both offensively (13-10) and defensively (28-24).

Under head coach Mark Turgeon, this is Maryland’s third first-weekend departure in four tournaments. The Terps made it to the Sweet 16 last in 2016, and as with Saturday’s loss to LSU, 2016 remains to be UMD’s most-recent Sweet 16 appearance.
