WBB: No. 8 Terps Roll at Towson

TOWSON, Md. - Alyssa Thomas had 15 points and 12 rebounds, and No. 8 Maryland used a late run in the first half to pull away for a 90-53 victory at Towson Saturday night.

Laurin Mincy and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough added 14 points each for Maryland (4-1), which has won two straight. Brene Moseley added 11 points and Brionna Jones notched 10 for the Terps. Thomas had her fourth straight double-double in the first half with 15 points,10 rebounds in the first period alone.

The Terps' bench outscored the Tigers', 56-7. Maryland owned the inside game, outscoring the Tigers, 48-14 inside and owning a 46-21 rebounding advantage. We knew that Towson did a really nice job rebounding the basketball, so that was an emphasis for us. I thought we did a really nice job of sharing the basketball, being really unselfish, especially in our transition. We were able to get going and I thought Brene had a great command of the game."

Tanisha McTiller led Towson (1-4) with a season-high 25 points. Dominique Johnson added 11 points for the Tigers, who have lost two in a row.

Thomas had five points during the decisive 12-0 run late in the first half that blew the game open. Maryland's bench outscored Towson's reserves 56-7.

Two free throws by Dominique Johnson pulled Towson within 22-21 with 6:46 remaining in the first half before the Terrapins turned up the pressure over a three-minute stretch.

Jones knocked down two foul shots, Thomas converted a steal into a three-point play and then followed with a transition layup for a 29-21 edge. Jones' three-point play and two free throws by Mincy extended the lead to 13. Maryland led 46-30 at the break.

The Terrapins continued to push it in the second half, with Malina Howard scoring all eight of her points in the period. A three by Mincy with just over 14 minutes to play put the Terps up by 20 and they never looked back. Walker-Kimbrough went on a 10-0 run herself at 6:45 that pushed the Terrapins over the 30-point lead mark.
