Bambale Osby scored inside with 21 seconds left to help Maryland stun top-ranked North Carolina 82-80 on Saturday, handing the Tar Heels their first loss of the season.

James Gist finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Terrapins (12-7, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who blew an 11-point lead midway through the second half but still held on in a back-and-forth finish to win here for the first time since 2003.

Tyler Hansbrough had 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Tar Heels (18-1, 3-1), who had several chances in the final seconds to answer Osby's basket. But after Wayne Ellington missed a 3-pointer and a driving shot, North Carolina could only watch as Hansbrough's last gasp 3-pointer bounced off the rim as the horn sounded. Read more

I thought Maryland played a complete game. Osby, Gist, Milbourne and Vasquez all played well. I thought the key to the Terps was Landon getting the Terps off to a quick start in the first half with 4 quick points and again in the second half with a quick 3 pointer. He also had his career hight with 14. The other key was that the Terps only had 1o turnovers against the #1 team in college basketball. Fear The Turtle!
