College Park, Md. • As the final horn sounded and Maryland fans rushed the court to celebrate a rare victory over its bitter rival, weary Duke had just enough energy left to escape the mayhem for the safety of its locker room.

Seth Allen broke a tie by making two free throws with 2.8 seconds left, and the Terrapins stunned the second-ranked Blue Devils 83-81 Saturday night to end a six-game skid in the series.

Coming off a five-day break, Maryland notched its most significant win of the season at the expense of a tired Duke playing its fourth game in 10 days.

The Blue Devils were worn out, and it showed.

Duke was outrebounded 40-20, never led in the second half and got only four points and three rebounds from 6-foot-10 senior center Mason Plumlee.

No. 1 Indiana 83, Purdue 55 • Will Sheehey scored a career-high 22 points and Cody Zeller had 19 as the Hoosiers rolled over Purdue, routing the Boilermakers for the second time in 2½ weeks.

No. 5 Gonzaga 71, San Francisco 61 • Kelly Olynyk had 26 points and nine rebounds and Elias Harris added 17 points and 13 rebounds to carry the Zags past the pesky Dons, snapping a three-year losing streak at War Memorial Gymnasium in San Francisco.

Tennessee 88, No. 25 Kentucky 58 • Trae Golden had 24 points and eight assists as Tennessee got its most lopsided win in the 216-game history of this series. Kentucky was playing its first game without star center Nerlens Noel, who tore an ACL on Tuesday against No. 7 Florida. —
