Charlottesville, VA (Sports Network) - Alyssa Thomas had game highs of 27
points and 13 rebounds, and No. 7 Maryland breezed through Virginia, 73-44, at
John Paul Jones Arena.
Leading scorer Tianna Hawkins was limited to four points, but three Maryland
players other than Thomas scored in double figures, as Alicia DeVaughn added
14, Malina Howard netted 12 and Katie Rutan chipped in 11 in the lopsided win.
The Terrapins (21-4, 12-2 ACC), winners of two straight since losing at Duke,
shot 53 percent from the floor and led by double digits the entire second half
after scoring the first 12 points after the break.
Virginia (15-10, 7-7) was held to one field goal over a nearly 14-minute span
that lasted well into the second half. Ataira Franklin had 21 points in the
Cavaliers' fourth loss in five games.
