The Maryland men's basketball team lost, 72-70, to Syracuse in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge Nov. 27. The Terps fell to 6-2 overall. Here are four observations on the loss:
1. Sophomore Kevin Huerter was the best player on the court for Maryland.
Huerter came into Maryland's contest against Syracuse having shot 10-for-29 from 3-point range during the Terps' first seven games of the season, good for 34.5 percent, a touch below his 37.1 percent mark from last year. He had also turned the ball over 20 times as he adjusted to a new role that included more ball-handling and playmaking responsibilities than his first year in College Park, Md.
