Terps Ride Big Offensive Night From Lucas

 

1974 Maryland

95

1970 Florida St.

85

 

Unassociated Press: The 1974 Maryland Terrapins played 37 minutes of up-tempo basketball before slowing the game down during the final three minutes to hold off the 1970 Florida State Seminoles 95-85.  Star guard John Lucas was virtually unstoppable, leading Coach Lefty Driesell’s Terps with 25 points, while narrowly missing a double-double with nine assists.  His three steals led to seven Maryland points.

Florida State stayed within striking distance thanks to strong offensive rebounding, but the Seminoles committed 22 turnovers, 10 of them via steals and never could get within six points in the second half.

Maryland advances to the South Region as the 16-seed and will face top-seed Kentucky 1996 on Thursday.
