Anthony Cowan's 22 points led No. 5 Maryland to the championship of the Orlando Invitational on Sunday as it knocked off Marquette 84-63 in Florida.
Darryl Morsell added 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Terrapins (8-0), while Aaron Wiggins scored 15 points. Maryland led by as many as 25 points early in the second half and then held off a run by the 5-2 Golden Eagles. It shot 50 percent in the decisive first half and won the rebounding battle 40-30.
Brendan Bailey poured in a game-high 27 points for Marquette, going 7 of 12 on 3-pointers, and Sacar Anim scored 21. But the Golden Eagles' star player, senior guard Markus Howard, made just 1 of 12 shots from the field and finished with only six points -- 23 under his average.
The Terrapins led by 46-21 early in the second half after an Eric Ayala layup, but Marquette trimmed the deficit to 65-53 on Bailey's 3-ball with 6:14 left. But it got no closer, with Maryland putting the game away with an 8-0 burst late that included a breakaway layup from Cowan.
