No. 17 Maryland loses to Wisconsin on last minute 3-pointer

MADISON, Wis. -- Brad Davison hit a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left after getting a steal and Wisconsin upset No. 17 Maryland 56-54 on Tuesday night to pick up their third straight victory against a ranked opponent.

Davison finished with 14 points and Nate Reuvers and Micah Potter added 17 and 14 to lead the Badgers (11-6, 4-2 Big Ten), who now have beaten then-No.. 5 Ohio State and then-No. 20 Penn State.

Jalen Smith scored 18 and Anthony Cowan Jr. had 16 for the Terrapins (13-4, 3-3) who have now lost two straight after winning three and a row. Maryland suffered an 18-point defeat Friday at Iowa.

Trailing 54-51 with 1:31 to go, Reuvers made a jumper to bring the Badgers within one. Davison then stole the ball, called a timeout and then sunk a 3 to put the Badgers up 56-54 with 11 seconds to play.

After a timeout by Maryland, a 3-point attempt by Cowan clanked off the rim and Wisconsin escaped with the victory.

Cowan, who averaged 17.8 point and 3.5 assists in his four previous games against the Badgers, scored nine in the second half but it wasn't enough. He now has scored at least 16 points in 10 of his last 13 games.

Cowan and Smith scored the first baskets of the night for Maryland, but Wisconsin countered with a 9-0 run. The Badgers led by as many as eight in the first half and took a 30-25 advantage into the half. The Terrapins shot 36% (9-for-25) from the field before intermission. Potter and Reuvers each had nine points in the first half.

BIG PICTURE

Maryland must pick up the pieces quickly. The Terrapins head back home to take on a Purdue team that defeated No. 15 Michigan State 71-42 on Saturday.

Wisconsin now leads the all-time series with Maryland 10-6, including a 5-1 mark against the Terrapins at home.

Cassius Stanley shoots Duke past Hokies

DURHAM, N.C. -- Cassius Stanley scored 21 points and made a season-high five 3-pointers to help No. 6 Duke beat Virginia Tech 88-64 on Saturday night.

Matthew Hurt added 16 points and a season-high 10 rebounds for the Blue Devils (23-4, 13-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who never trailed.

Duke opened the game with an 11-2 spurt that featured three 3-pointers in the first three minutes. The Blue Devils scored on 10 of their first 12 possessions and later delivered a 19-4 run on their way to a 51-25 lead at halftime.

Duke improved to 21-1 all time at home against the Hokies.

Vernon Carey Jr. scored 16 points and Tre Jones had 14 points for the Blue Devils.

Tyrece Radford scored 16 points to lead Virginia Tech (15-12, 6-10), which shot 37% from the field. Isaiah Wilkins added 11 points, and Hunter Cattoor had all 10 of his points in the second half for the Hokies.

Landers Nolley II, who entered the game averaging a team-best 17.3 points and 6.3 rebounds, had three points and one rebound for Virginia Tech.

BIG PICTURE

Virginia Tech: The Hokies continued their slide. They were one of college basketball's feel-good stories early on with a win over Michigan State and then seven victories in an eight-game stretch through mid-January, but they have dropped eight of 10 games since then.

Duke: The Blue Devils bounced back after getting thumped 88-66 at N.C. State on Wednesday night, winning for the eighth time in their last nine games. They remain a half game behind No. 11 Louisville for first place in the ACC as they pursue another top seed for the NCAA Tournament.

UP NEXT

Virginia Tech: Virginia, which beat the Hokies 65-39 on Jan. 4, visits Virginia Tech on Wednesday night.

Duke: The Blue Devils travel on Tuesday night to Wake Forest, a team they beat 90-59 on Jan. 11.
