COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Lamar Patterson scored 28 points, and No. 20 Pittsburgh beat Maryland 83-79 Saturday night to complete its first regular-season sweep as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Pittsburgh (18-2, 6-1) never trailed in the second half against the struggling Terrapins, who lost by 20 to the Panthers on Jan. 6. Although this game was significantly closer than the first one, Maryland (11-9, 3-4) simply couldn't contain Patterson, a 6-foot-5 senior who fell just short of matching his career high of 30 points.

Patterson went 8 for 14 from floor and made 12 of 14 free throws. He also had seven rebounds and seven assists.

Talib Zanna scored 16 for the Panthers and James Robinson had 13. Pittsburgh next faces Duke at home on Monday night.
