The Maryland-Penn State game came down to the absolute wire Sunday.
The Terps had a 16-point lead but the Nittany Lions came all the way back and Camren Winter put Penn State up 63-62 with :43 left.
Maryland took the lead back when Julian Reese hit a layup off a wonderful pass from Don Carey.
Then, with five seconds left, Seth Lundy missed a three and the rebound fell to Winter, who got the putback with no time left. Maryland had a fraction left but nothing came of it.
For Penn State, it’s a tremendous win, one for the books. For Maryland, it’s a terrible way to lose. It’s bad enough to lose but to lose right at the buzzer when you’ve done everything you need to do to win...what could possibly be worse?
For the rest of us, it’s a nice warmup for what’s to come these next few weeks.
