COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Nick Faust scored 16 points, and Maryland launched the home portion of its final trip through the Atlantic Coast Conference by defeating Georgia Tech 77-61 Saturday.

The Terrapins never trailed in their seventh-straight home win over the Yellow Jackets. Maryland (10-5, 2-0) built a double-digit lead in the opening four minutes, upped the margin to 20 early in the second half and coasted to the finish.

Evan Smotrycz contributed 14 points, Dez Well scored 11 and Charles Mitchell collected 11 rebounds for the Terrapins, who have won three straight and five of six.

This is Maryland's last season in the ACC before moving to the Big Ten. With the win, the Terrapins improved to 36-36 against the Yellow Jackets in ACC play.

Marcus Georges-Hunt led Georgia Tech (9-5, 0-1) with 11 points. The Yellow Jackets have lost eight-straight ACC openers.
