COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Alex Len and Dez Wells each scored 19 points, and Maryland squeezed past Stony Brook 76-69 Friday night for its 10th straight victory.

Freshman guard Seth Allen contributed nine points and Pe'Shon Howard had eight points and seven assists for the Terrapins (10-1), who haven't lost since dropping the season opener to Kentucky on Nov. 9. The 10-game run is Maryland's longest since the 2000-01 season and four short of the school record.

After the Terrapins let a 20-point lead dwindle to 69-66, Len missed two free throws with 54 seconds left. The 7-foot-1 center grabbed the rebound of the second misfire, though, and dunked it.

Anthony Jackson answered with a 3-pointer for the Seawolves (8-3) to shave the margin to two points before Howard and Nick Faust each made a pair of foul shots to seal the win.
