COLLEGE PARK, Md.(AP) -- William & Mary claimed another Atlantic Coast Conference victim Wednesday night, defeating Maryland 83-77 to extend its winning streak to nine games and hand the Terrapins their first home loss of the season.

Sophomore Quinn McDowell scored a career-high 28 points and Danny Sumner added 17 for the Tribe (9-2), who beat Wake Forest in November. It's the first time in school history that William & Mary has defeated two ACC foes on the road in the same season.

Off to its best start since 1977, the Tribe has also beaten Richmond and Colonial Athletic Association rival Virginia Commonwealth. The nine-game winning streak is second-longest in school history behind a 10-game run in 1930.

Greivis Vasquez scored 26 - his fourth straight game with at least 20 - and Landon Milbourne had 19 for Maryland (8-4), now 6-1 at home.
