COLLEGE PARK, Maryland (Ticker) -- Steve Blake moved into the top 20 on the NCAA career assists list and Ryan Randle matched a career high with 21 points on 10-of-10 shooting as 20th-ranked Maryland cruised to a 79-57 rout of Wagner.
Blake registered the third of his 12 assists just 4:19 into the contest, feeding Tahj Holden for a layup to open a 15-4 lead for the Terrapins (7-3). That moved Blake past Michigan State's Mateen Cleaves and into 20th place on the list. He finished the contest with 826 career assists and also failed commit a turnover.
The Terrapins' floor leader, Blake has guided Maryland during the most successful stretch in school history. The Terrapins have won a national championship, made two trips to the Final Four and own an 89-28 record during Blake's three-plus seasons as their starting point guard.
Randle, who led Maryland in scoring for the third time in four games, matched a school record by hitting all 10 of his shots. The senior center tied the mark of Lonny Baxter, who accomplished the feat on December 23, 1998 against North Texas.
"We won by 22 today against a team that has beat some people and played some people tough on tough courts," Terrapins coach Gary Williams said.
Drew Nicholas effectively put away the game by collecting nine of his 11 first-half points in the final 5:38 of the period. Nicholas converted a layup with just 33 seconds remaining to give the Terrapins a 40-21 halftime advantage. The senior guard finished with 13 points.
Holden contributed 11 points off the bench, while freshman Chris McCray registered seven steals.
"(McCray) was really active out there," Williams said. "That's all you want, guys to play like that."
Jermaine Hall paced the Seahawks (4-6) with 26 points and 11 rebounds, but Wagner lost for the fifth time in seven games.
"That Wagner team lost to Connecticut in Storrs," Williams said. "They are a very good scoring team. I think we held them to about 12 points under their average. There were some positive things out there today."
Freshman Travis Garrison and fellow forward Jamar Smith each pulled down nine boards for Maryland, which outrebounded Wagner, 50-40. That translated into a 50-28 advantage in points in the paint for the Terrapins.
Garrison also blocked four shots.
Maryland hosts Hampton next Wednesday before resuming Atlantic Coast Conference play next Saturday at home against Florida State.
