BALTIMORE (AP) No. 23 Maryland used its defense to work its way out of a tough spot.
Anthony Cowan had 17 points and Maryland scored 20 points off turnovers in a 55-41 victory over Loyola of Chicago on Saturday. The Terrapins also held the Ramblers to 32.7 percent shooting while bouncing back from Thursday night's disappointing 62-60 loss at Purdue.
"I knew we had toughness, but my guys showed me a lot today," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. "To have a devastating loss the way we did on the road and come back less than 48 hours later and play the way we played defensively showed great toughness."
