Best Shot

Trailing by as many as 15 points in the second half, Maryland needed a miracle to beat Illinois at home Dec. 7. Thankfully for the Terps, the game occurred in December, a month synonymous with unexplainable phenomena.

It wasn’t Saint Nick who saved the Terps but instead Saint Anthony (Cowan), who authored a “signature shot,” drilling a game-tying 30-footer from Gary Williams’ autograph on the court. Shortly thereafter, he won the game with a last-second steal and free throw.
