COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Though it appeared to be nothing more than another early-season blowout for Maryland, there was reason to believe the Terrapins may ultimately benefit from the fashion in which the victory was secured.Michal Cekovsky scored 16 points in his third career start, Jaylen Brantley added 14 in a reserve role and Maryland eased past Howard 79-56 Wednesday night.Cekovsky went 8 for 9 from the floor in tying his career high for points, set earlier this season against Kansas State. The 7-foot-1 junior also blocked three shots.Cekovsky started at center for senior Damonte Dodd, who has a sprained left MCL and will be sidelined for at least two more games before being re-evaluated. Dodd leads the team with 17 blocked shots.I talk to Ceko more than anybody and coach him harder than anybody on the team, coach Mark Turgeon said. Theres a lot of potential there. He can really score. Hes one of our better defenders, but his timing is not there yet.Thats because the Slovakian is still working his way back from a foot injury that sidelined him for the first four games.Brantley, meanwhile, drilled four 3-pointers on a night the Terrapins received just 10 points from standout guard Melo Trimble.Weve got good players, weve got good scorers, Turgeon said. Of all three years since hes been here, I think he trusts these guys the most.Maryland (9-1) led by seven at halftime, upped the margin to 17 with 15:57 remaining and cruised to the finish.Hopefully, tonight gives a lot of guys confidence and we become a deeper basketball team, Turgeon saidWe were much better in the second half, Turgeon conceded.Charles Williams scored 21 for Howard (1-6) and Solomon Mangham had 16.Howard was without high-scoring guard James Daniel, who has yet to play this season because of sprained left ankle. He led the NCAA in scoring last season, averaging 27 points per game, and was the player of the year in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.To make matters worse, leading scorer James Miller was injured early in the game and finished with no points on 0-for-5 shooting.Obviously, when Miller went out, it was deflating to our group of guys, coach Kevin Nickelberry said. He thought he could go but he just couldnt.Maryland led 18-13 before Mangham scored nine straight points to put the Bison up 22-19. Minutes later, a layup by Cekovsky and a 2-pointer by Trimble sparked an 11-0 run that helped the Terrapins take a 38-31 lead at the break.Early in the second half, Cekovsky made a layup and a dunk in a 7-0 spurt that enabled Maryland to move in front 47-33.In the second half we really shot the ball, turned the ball over less, the defense was better and our rebounding was good, Turgeon said.INSIDE OUTThe plan for Maryland was to work the ball inside and shoot the 3 after the defense sagged. So what happened? Fourteen of the Terps first 19 shots were from long range.We watched a lot of film and one of our keys was to play inside out, Turgeon said. Our guys werent doing it. That was the disappointing part. I had to go in at halftime and yell.Maryland scored 18 points in the paint over the final 20 minutes and shot 53 percent from the floor.THE BIG PICTUREHoward: The Bison are simply trying to hang in there until Daniel returns. The 5-foot-10 senior is expected to be out for another 2/3 weeks.Maryland: Turgeon went deep through his bench to get playing time for 10 players in the first half alone. If nothing else, the Terrapins learned how to play well together and effectively without help from Trimble, their go-to guy in virtually every tight situation.UP NEXTHoward: The Bison face their fourth straight Washington-area opponent, George Washington, on Saturday night.Maryland: The Terrapins are at home Saturday afternoon against St. Josephs, which lost to Houston Baptist 62-47 Wednesday.

The CFLs leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL. BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU coach Les Miles said he might not announce a starting quarterback in advance of the 20th-ranked Tigers Southeastern Conference opener against Mississippi State.When Miles spoke on Monday, he said he had not had a chance to discuss his plans for the quarterback position with his players, and therefore was not ready to discuss it publicly.Miles suggested he might be more forthcoming, after discussing the situation with his team, but wasnt promising anything.Danny Etling, a junior transfer from Purdue who relieved Harris two series into last Saturday nights game against Jacksonville State, put himself in the mix by leading four touchdown drives in a 34-13 victory.He did so without the benefit of having star running back Leonard Fournette in the backfield. Fournette was given the night off to rest his bruised left ankle, and Derrius Guice was elevated to starter, backed up by Darrel Williams. But Miles said he expects Fournette to be available against the Bulldogs this Saturday night in Death Valley.Hell practice at least three days this week, Miles said. We used running back-by-committee with Leonard missing the (last) game. That kept Derrius fresh and kept Darrel Williams fresh. We are real fortunate to have quality backs without Leonard.Even without Fournette, LSUs tailbacks accounted for 220 rushing yards against Jacksonville State. Guice, whose 155 yards were six yards shy of his career high, averaged more than 8 yards per attempt. Williams and Nick Brossette combined for 64 yards on eight carries -- an 8-yard average.Their performance gave Etling the support he needed when his performance -- which began with a flourish -- tapered off in the second half.Etling was 6-of-8 for 100 yards and a touchdown in the second quarter last Saturday. However, he was 0-for-6 with an interception and a lost fumble in the second half.Danny is the kind of guy wwho really prepares.dddddddddddd He was in the building on Sunday watching film. Danny had great weeks of preparation going into the season. As he approached game week, he performed particularly well.Miles stressed that he is not ready to disregard using Harris. According to Miles, Harris will still play a huge role in this season.We need both quarterbacks, Miles said. We are not turning our back in any way at the competition at that position. Getting a respite from being the starting quarterback and its pressures can help Brandon. He can step back and take a deep breath. Lets not turn a blind eye to a very talented player.In a season-opening loss against Wisconsin, Harris performed poorly as his day ended with an interception while the Tigers were driving into position for a game-winning field goal attempt.Last Saturday night, Harris completed one of four passes for 8 yards on two possessions -- neither of which produced a first down, never mind points.We needed a little pick me up and we put Danny in, Miles said, adding that he wont hesitate to change quarterbacks again if the offense is sluggish out of the gate.We have no first-quarter points this year, Miles said. Whoever is taking the first snap, we need a fast start.Miles also noted that he thought LSUs offensive line, which struggled against Wisconsin, played better and I think they will play better. We have six or seven guys who can really play.Right guard Josh Boutte, who started the Wisconsin game but was suspended for a flagrant foul at the end of that game, will be back in uniform against Mississippi State.Against Jacksonville State, Maea Teuhema replaced Boutte, but Miles did not indicate who will start this week.---Online: AP College Football website Cheap Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap Jerseys Store ' ' '
