COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) – Alyssa Thomas had 25 points and 12 rebounds, and No. 8 Maryland overcame a shaky first half to beat Ohio State 67-55 Wednesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
The Terrapins (8-1) led by only three points at the break before returning to make their first four shots as part of an 11-2 run that made it 40-28. Thomas scored six points in the spree and Brene Moseley sank Maryland’s first 3-pointer of the game.
Ohio State (6-4) closed to 56-53 with 2:58 left, but a 3-pointer by Lexie Brown, a layup by Moseley and two free throws by Thomas ended the suspense.
Ameryst Alston scored 18, and Cait Craft and Matina Ellerbe had 11 apiece for the Buckeyes, who were coming off a 21-point loss to top-ranked Connecticut.
