Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:
Ekene Ibekwe had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Terrapins (9-2), who forced the Hornets into 5-for-20 shooting while building a 36-13 halftime lead.
It was the 550th career win for Maryland coach Gary Williams, who has guided the Terrapins to 27 consecutive non-conference home victories. Williams (550-308) has 343 wins at Maryland, five short of Lefty Driesell's school record.
Maryland has won four straight and eight of nine. In their last game, the Terrapins yielded only 17 first-half points in an 81-55 rout of American University.
Jahsha Bluntt scored a career-high tying 24 points for Delaware State (2-9), the defending Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champion. All 11 of the Hornets' games this season have been on the road.
Maryland led 9-6 before surprise starter Mike Jones hit a 3-pointer to spark a 10-0 run. Jones started at shooting guard ahead of leading scorer Chris McCray, who entered with 13:42 left in the first half.
There was no immediate reason given for McCray's demotion to the bench. McCray finished with 11 points in 27 minutes.
After Tracey Worley made a baseline jumper to bring the Hornets to 19-8 with 7 minutes left in the first half, the Terrapins went on a 17-2 spree to go up 36-10. Caner-Medley scored eight points in the run.
At halftime, the Hornets had 11 turnovers, were 0-for-5 from 3-point range and 3-for-6 at the free throw line.
Delaware State abandoned its deliberate style in the second half. Bluntt hit a pair of 3-pointers in the opening 90 seconds - the first time in the game that Delaware State made successive baskets.
It was 46-27 before Bluntt scored four points in a 10-1 run that got the Hornets within 10 with 9:19 left.
Caner-Medley then scored on a drive and made two free throws to make it 51-37, and James Gist added two free throws for a 16-point cushion.For more coverage of the Maryland Terrapins, check out TerrapinTimes.com.
