COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Maryland was being dominated on the boards and seemingly incapable of scoring from the outside. As the deficit against Towson reached double digits, coach Mark Turgeon began to wonder if a comeback was possible.I wasnt sure if we could do it, he admitted.Down by 13 points with 14 minutes left, the Terrapins (4-0) rallied behind Melo Trimble to pull out a 71-66 victory Sunday.Trimble scored 27 and freshman Justin Jackson added 21 for Maryland, which used a game-ending 35-17 surge to squeeze past its in-state foe.We figured out how to win. Its what we do, Turgeon said. When we were down 13 it didnt lk gd.It was tied at 66 when Towson guard Deshaun Morman missed a shot and Trimble was fouled getting the rebound.Trimble made two free throws with 35.9 seconds left. After Mike Morsell misfired for the Tigers, freshman Anthony Cowan was fouled and sank one of two shots for a three-point cushion.Towsons last chance faded when Morman missed a 3-pointer and Kevin Huerter made two fouls shots on the other end.It was just about us playing defense and dialing in, said Trimble, who went 4 for 15 from the flr but was 16 for 17 at the foul line.The Tigers (2-1) outrebounded Maryland 46-33 but were outscored 26-15 at the foul line.Morsell led the Tigers with 17 points and Morman had 15. Towson is 0-13 against the Terrapins.The Tigers had more height than Maryland, but they didnt have Trimble.Im a Red Sox fan, Towson coach Pat Skerry said. Its like playing against Mariano Rivera back in the day. Hes like the ultimate closer for a team.The Tigers, on the other hand, couldnt make a sizeable lead stand up.Towson opened the second half with a 13-2 run to move in front 49-36 with 14:27 remaining. Maryland missed its first seven field-goal tries before Trimble ended the dry spell with a 3-point play.That ignited a 12-1 run that got the Terrapins to 50-48. The Tigers then expanded their lead to 56-51, but sn after that, Trimble hit a 3 from the corner to put Maryland up 61-58, its first lead since 27-26 late in the first half.Were an unbelievable work in progress when it comes to our offense right now, Turgeon said. With 12 minutes to go in the game I finally figured out what was going to work and we were able to do some gd things against them.Unlike his coach, Trimble was confident the Terps could pull it out.We knew we could come back and hopefully change the momentum and try and get the lead back, he said. It was just about us playing defense and dialing in.The matchup was a campus-site game in the Barclays Center Classic, which does not put the teams in brackets until the action shifts to New York and Towson on Nov. 25.SHORTHANDEDMaryland was without guard Dion Wiley, who had a stomach virus. Turgeon is also waiting on 7-ft-1 center Michal Cekovsky, who has yet to play this year because of a sprained ft.THE TAKEAWAYTowson: The Tigers showed they can complete with one of the better teams in the nation, which should serve as a confidence-bst when they get into play in the Colonial Athletic Conference.I told our guys our goal is to get into the NCAA tournament, Skerry said. Thats the type of team youre going to play against and be able to beat.Maryland: This marked the third time in four games the Terrapins were involved in a close game. Barely beating American and Towson is nothing to crow about, but the experience gained from playing in tight affairs could prove beneficial in the future.Weve figured out how to win three closes games now, which is a (gd) sign when youre playing so many young kids like we are, Turgeon said.UP NEXTTowson travels to Boston College on Tuesday night for another campus-site game in the Barclays Classic.Maryland hosts Stony Brk on Tuesday night in the Barclays Classic.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- ??? Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly was asked about the challenges he faces going against Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio, who he has faced four times and followed as coach at Cincinnati.Hes only about 190 pounds, so I dont have much of a challenge with him, he quipped. But their team is a challenge, if thats what you mean.The 12th-ranked Spartans (1-0) and 18th-ranked Fighting Irish (1-1) play on Saturday night, ending a two-year gap in the series that dates to 1897 and has been played regularly since 1948. Both teams have something to prove.The Spartans, who have finished ranked in the top six the past three seasons, are lking to show they are ready to be playoff contenders after an unimpressive 28-13 win over Furman. The Irish are lking to stay alive in the playoff race following a season-opening loss at No. 11 Texas.Dantonio said he has a lot to learn about his team.I think we have a gd ftball team. I think weve got players. So, that remains to be seen, he said.Players on both teams say they expect a physical game. Spartans linebacker Riley Bullough recalled how hard-hitting the game was in a 17-13 Irish victory in 2013, the Spartans only loss that season.Notre Dame was a physical, fast, violent team. Kind of the same things that we pride ourselves on, he said.Notre Dame linebacker James Onwualu, who played in that 2013 game, describes the Spartans as hard-nosed.Everybodys been saying physical, physical, physical, he said.Kelly told his players they must remain poised.This is not a boxing match. This is not UFC, he said. What we cant get caught up in is the emotion of a game like this where words turn into pr actions.Other things to be aware of involving the Michigan State-Notre Dame game:WAITING GAMEMichigan State wasnt off last week because the Spartans wanted extra time to prepare for Notree Dame.dddddddddddd It was because Alabama in 2013 canceled a pair of games against the Spartans. Dantonio concedes it wasnt an ideal time for an off week.I dont think there is anybody in our program that wanted to sit last weekend, he said.RETURNING PLAYERSMichigan State linebacker Ed Davis is expected to play after being granted a sixth year of eligibility because he missed last season with a knee injury. Dantonio said he doesnt know how much Davis will play. Davis was a starting linebacker for the Spartans in 2014, when he had 58 tackles and seven sacks.Kelly said receiver Torii Hunter Jr., who sat out against Nevada after sustaining a concussion against Texas, will play.TIGHT ENDSLast season, Notre Dame tight ends had a combined 20 receptions, the fewest in a season for the Irish since the tight ends had eight in 2001. Through two games the only Notre Dame tight end with a catch is Durham Smythe with one for eight yards. Kelly said the tight ends are still part of the game plan.If hes open and hes part of our progression, weve got to get the ball to them. Were just not going to force it to him, he said.RANKED GAMESMichigan State is 6-2 against ranked opponents the past three seasons. Notre Dame is 5-8.COACHING ADVICEKelly said he still gets hand-written notes weekly about the previous weeks games from 93-year-old Ara Parseghian, the Notre Dame coaching great who led the Irish to a famous 10-10 tie against the Spartans in 1966.I keep them all, Kelly said. They are for me they are inspirational in a sense that at 90-something years old he takes the time to write me a note and I can read them.Kelly said he keeps the notes in a bk.---Online: AP college ftball site: tball.ap.org" target="_blank">http://collegeftball.ap.org ' ' '
