WATCH: Maryland's Huerter throws down dunk vs. Purdue

Coming into its game against No. 23 Purdue, No. 17 Maryland was riding a seven-game winning streak, but the Boilermakers are the first ranked opponent the Terrapins have faced all year.

Maryland jumped out to a quick lead to start the game, but Purdue managed to pull within two at the half.

And then, at home, Maryland took the momentum back, thanks in part to plays like this:

The dunk gave Maryland a 12-point lead with 13:45 left to play, but Purdue fought back, eventually taking the lead on two Carsen Edwards free throws with three seconds left. Huerter would get a good look at the buzzer to win the game, but the shot rimmed out and Purdue took home the 73-72 upset.
