Maryland Upsets No. 5 Cavs in Regular Season Finale

The No. 5 Virginia men's basketball team was upset on the road at Maryland, 75-69, in the regular-season finale for both teams, and the Terrapins' final home game as members of the ACC. The loss dropped Virginia to 26-5 overall and 13-2 in league play and also snapped the Wahoos' 13-game win streak.

The Cavs were down 64-61 when Malcolm Brogdon was fouled with 2.8 seconds in regulation. Brogdon made the first free throw, but intentionally missed the second. The ball went off a Terrapin out of bounds, giving the 'Hoos one last chance with 1.7 seconds on the clock, down two.

Virginia then ran a perfectly-executed inbounds play, with Anthony Gill scoring on a London Perrantes lob to tie the game at 64 and send it to overtime.

Maryland scored the first five points of the extra period, four coming from Seth Allen, and held off the Cavaliers from there for the win.

Gill led Virginia with 15 points, Perrantes followed with 14 and Brogdon and Joe Harris had 12 each.

Virginia will enter the ACC Tournament as the No 1 seed. They will play in a quarterfinal game Friday at noon.
