Tar Heels Icey Cold In Loss To Terps, 92-71

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Greivis Vasquez had 26 points and 11 assists, and Maryland solidified its hold on second place in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a 92-71 victory over skidding North Carolina on Sunday.

Eric Hayes scored 16 for the Terrapins (16-6, 6-2), who never trailed after taking a 7-6 lead. Maryland has won four of its last five games against North Carolina, including last year's memorable 88-85 overtime thriller.

In that game, Vasquez scored 35 to help the Terrapins rally from 16 points down. In this one, Maryland let a 16-point lead dwindle to 3 before pulling away.

Marcus Ginyard led North Carolina (13-10, 2-6) with 17 points and Deon Thompson had 16. It was the sixth loss in seven games for the Tar Heels, their worst streak since 2002. The defending NCAA champions are 10th in the ACC, a half-game out of last place.

    Carolina is becoming a laughingstock! Roy should have never thrown that fan out in the beginning of the season. Roy was known for his recruiting.... and being an average play caller. Now he has nothing! Roy is a joke and all you Carolina fans are seeing the product of his...... 'genius'! NO NCAA FOR U

    To Neo: Looks like they have a 4 years guard in Drew II. Who would draft him?? I say play Dexter at that spot, sit Deon and Marcus on the niddle of he bench and play people who have desire.

    Hey Roy, as a Carolina fan I can admit that seeing all the top 10 type players come to Chapel Hill year after year is great, but recruiting just a couple of 4 year type players now and again at key positions may be a good idea. A steady, if unspectacular, experienced point gaurd would go a long way toward stabalizing the program during these transition years. Just sayin'........
