​In tragic news, former Maryland basketball player Cliff Tucker died Monday morning in a one-car accident in his hometown of El Paso, Texas. 


Tucker, who played guard for the ​Terrapins from 2007-2011, was one of three people killed in the accident and a fourth was injured. 

​​Tucker was a part of two Maryland teams that made ​March Madness appearances and he led the team in three-pointers during his senior season, as he nailed 41 triples. Tucker appeared in 131 games for the Terrapins over the course of his four-year career at Maryland. 

​​Tucker helped lead Maryland to a share of the ACC title in 2010 with his memorable buzzer-beating three against Georgia Tech at home. Tucker's shot was especially notable because it was Maryland's only ACC title in the past 15 years. 


Rest in peace.
