Unranked Maryland took down No. 3 Purdue on Thursday in a court-storming upset defeating the Boilermakers 68-54.
The first half ended 28-25 with Purdue ahead of the Terrapins. Then Maryland got to work outscoring the Boilermakers 43-26 in the second half.
The turning point came when Purdue’s Mason Gillis earned a technical foul with just over 15 minutes to play — from there, the Terps outscored the Boilermakers 37-17.
Maryland knocked off its first AP top-5 ranked team since 2016 snapping an 11-game losing streak.
