NCAA First-Round Highlights: Maryland escapes, and advances, against South Dakota State

03/18/2016

SPOKANE, Wash. – Jake Layman scored 27 points and Melo Trimble had a season-high 19 to lead No. 5-seed Maryland past South Dakota State, 79-74, in NCAA first-round action. The Terrapins led by 18 points before a frantic rally twice brought the Jackrabbits within two in the final minute.

Before fouling out with 1:03 to play, Trimble hit 9-of-9 free throw attempts while sparking the Terrapins who advanced to second-round play on Sunday. The Jackrabbits fought within five before Trimble’s disqualifying foul that sent George Marshall to the foul stripe for three free throws. Marshall, who fouled out on the ensuing possession, hit all three attempts to draw SDSU within 72-70, but they never got closer.

SDSU guard Deandre Parks hit three free throws with 13.5 seconds remaining for another 2-point deficit at 76-74, but the comeback effort ran out of time. Parks finished with 22 points for the Jackrabbits and Mike Daum scored 16.

Kevin Calabro and Dan Dickau called the action on Westwood One Sports.
