No. 8 Maryland breezes past Clemson

Lynetta Kizer led six players in double figures 61, on Thursday.

Alicia DeVaughn added 15 points while Tianna Hawkins and Alyssa Thomas both had 14 for the Terrapins (21-3, 8-3 ACC), winners of three straight. Laurin Mincy finished with 13 points and Brene Moseley had 10.

The Tigers (6-16, 2-9) have dropped 10 straight to Maryland, dating back to 2004. They were led by Nikki Dixon's 17 points while Chancie Dunn chipped in 12.

The Terps were up 14-4 less than five minutes in on a jumper by DeVaugh and didn't look back. The advantage reached 20, 39-19, late in the first half and Sequoia Austin had Maryland up 46-26 at the break with a buzzer-beating layup.

After the break, a 13-3 Terps run turned a 20-point lead into an 80-50 margin. Maryland cruised from there, finishing at a 51.6 percent clip from the floor, compared to 33.3 percent for Clemson.
