Vasquez leads Maryland over Florida Atlantic 72-59Dec 27, 2009 - 8:57 PM By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer
COLLEGE PARK, Md.(AP) -- Greivis Vasquez scored 26 points, Landon Milbourne had 19, and Maryland improved to 6-0 at home with a 72-59 victory over Florida Atlantic on Sunday.
It was the third straight game in which Vasquez reached the 20-point mark. The senior guard went 12-for-20 from the field, had eight rebounds and five assists to help Maryland (8-3) to its fourth win in five games.
The Terrapins played without second-leading scorer Sean Mosley, who has a sprained left ankle. The sophomore forward participated in warmups and dressed for the game but did not see action for the first time in his career.
Ray Taylor, a 5-foot-6 freshman, scored 16 points and Greg Gantt added 14 for Florida Atlantic (5-7). Brett Royster had 14 rebounds to help FAU finish with a 49-45 advantage on the boards.
Maryland limited the Owls to 30 percent shooting and forced 11 turnovers to lead 39-27 at halftime.
