COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Perfect at home and flawed on the road, No. 17 Maryland hopes it's found the solution to a weakness that has afflicted several Big Ten contenders. The Terrapins trailed last-place Northwestern by 14 at halftime Tuesday before rallying to win their first away game of the season. Whether that was the beginning of a trend will likely be determined Sunday, when Maryland takes on host Indiana.

The home team dominated on the boards, 42-16, which included 16 offensive rebounds. Evan Boudreaux had a game-high 13.
