COLLEGE PARK, Maryland (Ticker) -- Twentieth-ranked Maryland tries to match its longest winning streak of the season on Saturday when it hosts Wagner in a non-conference matchup at the Comcast Center.

The Terrapins have won consecutive games after losing three of their previous four. They have won two straight at home after having their 21-game home winning streak snapped with a loss to Florida on December 14.

Maryland (6-3) posted a 41-point victory over Maryland-Baltimore County before posting an 84-77 triumph against Georgia Tech on Sunday.

Drew Nicholas scored a career-high 29 points and Ryan Randle had 16 of his 20 in the second half for the Terrapins, who improved to 5-1 at home this season.

Steve Blake dished out eight assists and has 814 for his career. He is two shy of tying Michigan State's Mateen Cleaves for 20th on the all-time list.

Wagner (4-5) has won two straight following a four-game losing streak, including an 80-68 victory over Lehigh on Thursday.

Sean Munson, who had just nine points this season entering the game, had 18 points and seven rebounds for the Seahawks.

Wagner's leading-scorer Jermaine Hall collected 16 points and seven rebounds despite missing the final 12 minutes of the first half due to foul trouble.

Maryland defeated Wagner, 96-73, in the only previous meeting between the teams on December 5, 1980.
