COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Robert Carter scored 17 points as sixth-ranked Maryland bounced back from consecutive losses with a 86-82 victory over Michigan on Sunday.

Jake Layman had 16 points, while Melo Trimble finished with 13 for Maryland (23-5, 11-4 Big Ten). Freshman Diamond Stone added 13 points after being suspended for the previous game by Maryland coach Mark Turgeon for a flagrant foul against Wisconsin.

Junior Mark Donnal went 10 of 13 from the field and had 25 points for Michigan (19-9, 9-6).

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman had 16 points, Derrick Walton Jr. scored 14 and Zak Irvin had 11 points for the Wolverines, who went 13-27 from beyond the arc.

A careless inbound pass by Carter was stolen by Abdur-Rahkman, who made an uncontested easy layup and tied the game at 47 three minutes into the second half.

Maryland, however, regained control as Layman got hot beyond the mark.The senior hit a pair of 3-pointers and the Terrapins led 66-58 with 12 minutes remaining.
