Maryland seeks another banner after tying for Big Ten title

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Earning a share of the Big Ten regular season title provided Maryland with a sense of accomplishment and no small measure of relief, given the pressure that comes with fulfilling the expectations of a top 10 team.

"Just because people say you are going to be good doesn't mean you are going to be good. You have to go out and earn it," coach Mark Turgeon said. "When you're ranked high you get everybody's best shot. Sometimes that's not physically exhausting as much as mentally exhausting."

The Terrapins concluded a rigorous regular season Sunday by defeating Michigan 83-70 to earn a piece of their first Big Ten crown since joining the league in 2014. After the final horn, Turgeon and his players posed with the sparkling trophy and cut down the nets on both ends of the court.
