Vasquez leads Maryland past Boston College 73-57Jan 16, 2010 - 11:11 PM BOSTON(AP) -- Greivis Vasquez scored 17 points and dished out nine assists on his 23rd birthday to lead Maryland to an easy 73-57 victory over Boston College on Saturday.
Adrain Bowie scored 15 points, Cliff Tucker had 14 and Landon Milbourne added 13 for the Terrapins (11-5, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Corey Raji finished with 14 points and seven rebounds for Boston College (10-8, 1-3). Reggie Jackson added 11 points and Joe Trapani had nine points and nine rebounds for the Eagles, who lost their third straight conference game.
Maryland, which never trailed, led 38-28 at halftime.
The Eagles had trailed by 18 points late in the first half before scoring the final 10 points, making it look like they may have momentum in the second half.
But their success was short-lived, as Maryland opened the half by scoring nine of its first 11 points.
