COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Jake Layman came off the bench to score 13 points, and Maryland buried last-place Virginia Tech under a barrage of 3-pointers in a 64-47 Atlantic Coast Conference victory Tuesday night.

The Terrapins (16-14, 8-9) connected five times from beyond the arc in an 18-5 run that turned a 29-28 halftime deficit into a 12-point lead. If the teams don't meet in the ACC tournament, Maryland will head to the Big Ten after this season with a five-game winning streak against the Hokies and a 32-10 lead in the series.

Jarell Eddie and Joey van Zegeren each scored 14 for the Hokies (9-20, 2-15), who have lost five straight and 15 of 16. Virginia Tech's only win in 2014 came against Miami on Feb. 15.

The Hokies made a game of it over the first 20 minutes, outrebounding Maryland 21-11 to go in front at intermission.
