COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Rasheed Sulaimon had 21 points and a career-high 10 rebounds, Robert Carter Jr. scored 19 and No. 4 Maryland rallied to beat 18th-ranked Purdue 72-61 Saturday to extend their home winning streak to 25 games.

Purdue led 51-47 with 5:58 left before Carter hit a 3-pointer to spark a 9-0 run that put the Terrapins ahead for good.

A three-point play by Sulaimon with 1:23 to go made it 61-53, at which point the raucous sellout crowd of 17,950 could finally relax.

Carter went 7 for 10 from the field and made all four of Maryland’s 3-pointers.

The Terrapins (21-3, 10-2 Big Ten) won despite a poor shooting performance by guard Melo Trimble, who missed 10 of his 12 shots. He finished with 14 points by going 10 for 11 at the foul line.

A.J. Hammons scored 18 for the Boilermakers (19-5, 7-4). Purdue held the lead for much of the second half but lost its 12th straight against a Top 5 team on the road.
