Tobey's OT tip lifts Virginia past Maryland, 61-58
VIRGINIA 61, MARYLAND 58

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Mike Tobey's tip-in with 1:46 to
play in overtime gave Virginia the lead and it held on to beat
Maryland 61-58 Sunday night in a game the Cavaliers had to win
to boost their NCAA tournament hopes.



Tobey, who scored 13 points, tipped in a miss by Akil Mitchell
to give Virginia (21-10, 11-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) the
lead, and two turnovers and a missed 3-point try just before the
buzzer by Dez Wells preserved the Cavaliers' 17th consecutive
home victory and a first-round bye in the ACC tournament.



Nick Faust led the Terrapins (20-11, 8-10) with 15 points and
Wells finished with 12 and 12 rebounds, but despite leading most
of the game, the Terrapins lost their fifth in a row against
Virginia.



Mitchell led Virginia with 17 points and Joe Harris had 15
despite making just 4 of 18 shots.



Faust scored 10 of his 13 points during a 19-2 run early in the
game and Maryland almost made it last, not letting Virginia get
back to even until Harris' 3-pointer went through with just 1:37
remaining.



Wells' floater gave Maryland the lead back with 23.8 seconds
left, and Tobey tied it when he caught an inbounds pass, turned
and laid it in with 5.4 seconds left. Justin Anderson blocked
Maryland's final shot in regulation, and the teams traded
baskets in overtime until Tobey's follow finished it.



Mitchell made 1 of 2 free throws with 7.4 seconds left before
Wells' final miss.



Despite the stakes, Virginia trailed almost throughout, and
twice got within two possessions only to let Maryland players
hit open 3-pointers. Logan Aronhalt did it with 8:52 to play,
giving the Terps a 45-36 lead, and after Virginia got within
five, Seth Allen hit a 3 with the clock winding down for
Maryland. They were the only baskets for Aronhalt and Allen.



Trailing 50-42, however, Virginia finally put some defensive
stops and scoring together.



Tobey hit a free throw, and Mitchell scored on a drive for
Virginia. After Tobey blocked Alex Len's shot from in close at
the other end, Harris hit a pair of free throws to get Virginia
within 50-49.



Faust, who hadn't scored since the first 12 minutes, made it
52-49 with a 15-footer from the left baseline, and Harris then
tied it, making his first 3-pointer since very early from the
left of the key.



Wells' floater gave Maryland the lead with 23.8 seconds to play,
and after bringing the ball to the front court, Virginia coach
Tony Bennett called a timeout with 6.9 seconds left. On the
inbound, Tobey shook free and made a layup with 5.4 seconds
left, and Anderson's block at the other end forced overtime.



For most of the game, Virginia was trying to recover from a
sloppy, at times futile start.



Maryland used a 19-2 run to break away from a 6-all tie and take
command in the first half as Virginia played nothing like a team
badly needing a victory coming off 16 straight home wins.



Faust, who came in averaging 8.7 points, had 10 in the run and
13 in the first 12 minutes. With both teams shooting poorly,
Virginia outscored the Terps 11-7 over the last 8:15 to trail
32-19 at the half.
