COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP)

Sean Mosley scored 19 points, and Maryland beat Cornell 70-62 Tuesday night despite blowing most of a 23-point lead and surrendering a 16-0 run in the second half.

Alex Len had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Terrapins (10-3), who scored the game's first 16 points but barely hung on in their seventh consecutive victory. After the Big Red closed to 47-46, Len - a 7-foot-1 freshman - made a pair of three-point plays in an 8-4 spree that helped put momentum back on Maryland's side.

But the outcome wasn't decided until Terrell Stoglin hit a 3-pointer with 1:49 left and Pe'Shon Howard followed two Cornell misfires with a pair of foul shots for a 66-60 lead with 31.8 seconds remaining.

Chris Wroblewski scored 15 for Cornell (4-9) and Devin Cherry added 14. The Big Red have lost five straight, all on the road, where they are 0-8 this season.

Cornell is 1-24 against teams currently in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the lone victory against Wake Forest in the 1951-52 season.

Although the Big Red never led, they made a game of it early in the second half when successive layups by Eitan Chemerinski sparked a 16-point run that made it 43-42. Although Mosley interrupted the surge with two foul shots, Maryland began the half by going 0 for 9 from the field with six turnovers.

Maryland's first basket of the second half was a jumper by Mosley with 8:34 to go.

The Terrapins shot a sizzling 63 percent from the floor and limited the Big Red to 4-for-19 shooting from 3-point range in taking a 41-26 halftime lead.

Six different players made a field goal in Maryland's game-opening 16-0 run. Cornell coach Bill Courtney tried to ride out the barrage without calling a timeout, but he finally relented with five minutes elapsed and the score 15-0.

The Big Red missed their first five shots and had five turnovers before Cherry ended the drought with a reverse layup. Mosley then drilled successive 3-pointers in a 12-3 spurt that made it 28-5 - Maryland's biggest lead of the season.

Two shots from beyond the arc by Cherry cut the margin to 17, but a dunk by Len and a driving layup by Howard put the Terrapins ahead 34-13. At that juncture, 18 of Maryland's 34 points were scored in the paint
