COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Greivis Vasquez scored 22 points, Eric
Hayes had 17, and Maryland held off No. 18 Florida State 77-68 on
Sunday night to snap the Seminoles' seven-game winning streak.

The Terrapins (10-4, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) let a
16-point lead dwindle to 48-45 before Vasquez scored nine points in
a 14-4 surge that made it 62-49 with 9 minutes left.

Then, after the Seminoles closed to 72-66, Vasquez drilled a
3-pointer with 2:23 remaining to all but seal the victory.

Vasquez scored 17 points after halftime on 6-of-10 shooting. He
has at least 20 points in six straight games.

Chris Singleton had 12 points and 14 rebounds for Florida State
(13-3, 1-1), which played much of the second half without 6-foot-9
forward Ryan Reid, who injured his left ankle with 19:35 to go and
didn't return until 7:56 remained.
