Myreon Jones added 17 points for the Nittany Lions.
Maryland (15-12, 9-11) built a 12-0 lead while the Nittany Lions missed their first nine shot attempts. Ayala's 3-pointer with 5:33 before halftime gave Maryland a 29-13 lead.
Lundy scored Penn State's first 11 points, and Izaiah Brockington's layup with 7:20 left before halftime marked the first basket registered by anyone other than Lundy. Despite that, a 10-0 Penn State run in less than two minutes brought the Nittany Lions to within 29-23.
