Len leads Maryland over South Carolina State 61-46 for 8th straight win

Alex Len had 13 points to lead a balanced scoring attack by Maryland in a 61-46 breather over South Carolina State on Saturday.

Maryland (8-1) won its eighth straight game since a season-opening loss to defending national champion Kentucky. The last time the Terrapins won eight games in a row was the 2006-2007 season, when they opened with eight straight wins.

Though Len was the only Maryland player scoring in double figures, plenty of his teammates contributed in their second straight win over a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference team. It was also the second straight game that all 14 Terrapins played, with 10 scoring.

Shaquille Cleare added eight points and eight rebounds for the Terrapins, Dez Wells chipped in eight points and Seth Allen had five assists.

Louie Adams led South Carolina State (4-5) with 15 points, scoring 12 in the second half. Khalil Toombs added 12 points, all on 3-pointers.
