ESPN Stats and Information  

With its loss tonight, this is the first time Maryland made the NCAA Tournament and didn't win a game since 1997. The Terrapins had won a game in each of its last 12 appearances.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Trevon Blueitt made five 3s, and Xavier connected 59 percent on its 2s. That spells a 76-65 win for the No. 11 seed Musketeers over No. 6 seed Maryland. The leaky defense that cost the Terrapins back-to-back home losses late in the season against Minnesota and Iowa returned for Mark Turgeon's team at a really bad time.

Trevon Bluiett in Big East Tourney • First half: 4-19, 0-9 3-pt FG, 14 points • Second half: 14-24, 4-9 3-pt FG, 44 points Trevon Bluiett tonight: • First half: 1-8, 1-5 3-pt FG, 3 points • Second half: 6-7, 4-5 3-pt FG, 18 points

Trevon Bluiett scored 18 of his 21 points after halftime to lead 11-seed Xavier to a 76-65 upset win over 6-seed Maryland. The Terps are the second Big Ten team to lose to a double-digit seed today, joining Minnesota, which fell to 12-seed Middle Tennessee.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Xavier dominates the second half for a 76-65 win over Maryland. Xavier starting to find its footing in the post-Edmond Sumner era. Musketeers have now won four of their last five games, and freshman point guard Quentin Goodin is getting more confident. Sean O'Mara is giving consistent production inside, and Trevon Bluiett has been unguardable late in games.

Maryland and Trevon Bluiett are tied in the second half, 16 points apiece.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Something happens to Trevon Bluiett at halftime. Happened last week at the Big East tournament too. Missed his first six shots today -- then hit five of his next six. Starting to carry Xavier offensively.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Would love to see the efficiency stats on Maryland against the zone and man. Terrapins consistently getting open shots against Xavier's zone. Musketeers starting to tighten up defensively though.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Maryland closes out the first half with six straight points to take a one-point lead. Justin Jackson and Kevin Huerter have been the keys offensively for the Terps, as Xavier focuses its efforts on stopping Melo Trimble. Musketeers allowing too many open perimeter shots.

Adam Reisinger ESPN.com 

Xavier led for most of the first half, but a Melo Trimble steal and layup gave Maryland a 1-point lead at the break. The Terps scored 12 of their 36 first-half points off of Xavier turnovers.

Adam Reisinger ESPN.com 

After a number of questionable calls went against Maryland, the Terps fan section gave a standing ovation to a foul called against Xavier. At one point, Maryland had been called for 8 fouls while Xavier had been whistled for 3.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Thought Trevon Bluiett would be the key for Xavier on the offensive end today -- hasn't been the case. He continued his trend of slow starts, missing his first six shots. But the Musketeers are getting good contributions from their role players.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Sean O'Mara continuing his seemingly out-of-nowhere late-season surge. Xavier making an effort to get him the ball near the basket. Had five of Musketeers' first eight points. This is all coming off a strong Big East tournament performance.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Both teams started the game cold. Malcolm Bernard has guarded Melo Trimble in man, but Xavier also mixed in some zone in the early minutes. At the other end, Maryland has done a good job forcing Trevon Bluiett into out-of-rhythm shots.

Adam Reisinger ESPN.com 

Maryland missed its first four shots but still managed to take a lead - albeit a 3-2 lead - at the first media timeout. Maryland and Xavier combined to shoot 2-for-13 from the field in the first four minutes.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Interested to see how Xavier defends Melo Trimble. Would imagine Malcolm Bernard opens up on him. Size and length could give Trimble issues.

ESPN Stats and Information  

No. 6 seed Maryland has lost six of its past 10 games entering the Big Dance. ESPN's BPI likes No. 11 Xavier to pull off the upset Thursday night in Orlando.

Hopefully Maryland won't need Testudo, the Terrapins mascot, to make any shots Thursday against Xavier.
