Maryland breezes by Howard to move to 9-1

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Michal Cekovsky scored 16 points in his third career start, Jaylen Brantley added 14 and Maryland eased past Howard 79-56 Wednesday night.

Cekovsky went 8 for 9 from the floor in tying his career high for points, set earlier this season against Kansas State. The 7-foot-1 junior also blocked three shots.

Cekovsky started at center for senior Damonte Dodd, who has a sprained left MCL and will be sidelined for at least two more games before being re-evaluated. Dodd leads the team with 17 blocked shots.

Maryland (9-1) led by seven at halftime, upped the margin to 17 with 15:57 remaining and cruised to the finish.

Brantley drilled four 3-pointers on a night the Terrapins received just 10 points from standout guard Melo Trimble.

Charles Williams scored 21 for Howard (1-6) and Solomon Mangham had 16.
