Maryland guard Seth Allen scored 21 of his career-high 32 points in the first half in which the Terps outscored the Seminoles 46-29 as Maryland beat Florida State 83-71 Saturday to go over .500 in the ACC.

Allen playing in only his 12th game of the season after being on the bench with a left foot injury, the sophomore fromWoodbride, VA went 11-15 from the floor and 7-10 from three point land in leaping past his previous career best of 21 points.

Terps guard Dez Wells scored 15 and forward Jake Layman added 12 for the Terps which made good their home court after a 24-point defeat at FloridaState last month. The victory enabled the Terrapins to gain sole possession of seventh place in the ACC, one game ahead of the slumping Seminoles.

Aaron Thomas led FSU in scoring with 17 points and 8 rebounds, but the Noles simply couldn’t slow down Maryland’s shooting as the Terps shot 52% from the field for the contest.
