COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Alex Len had 16 points and 13 rebounds, Jake Layman scored 15 and Maryland squeezed past Boston College 64-59 on Tuesday night.

Maryland (15-4, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) improved to 13-1 at home despite committing 14 turnovers and shooting only 42 percent. It was the Terrapins' second win in five games after a 13-1 start.
