COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Terrence Oglesby nailed the
tie-breaking 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds remaining in the game and
Clemson erased a 20-point second-half deficit in a 73-70 victory
over Maryland tonight.

With Landon Milbourne sagging off him on the right wing, Oglesby
had clear path for the decisive basket to give the Tigers their
fourth victory in five games.

Maryland collapsed after a basket by Greivis Vasquez put the
Terrapins up 59-39 with 11:23 remaining. Clemson retaliated with a
31-11 run, tying the game on a breakaway slam by James Mays.

Mays scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half and grabbed
nine rebounds for Clemson, which had lost two straight to Maryland.
Trevor Booker added 18 points and Oglesby had 12.

James Gist led the Terrapins with 15 points and eight rebounds.
Vasquez had 13 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. Adrian
Bowie and Eric Hayes scored 12 points each.
