#7 Maryland Travels to Wake Forest Friday

Posted:

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The seventh-ranked Maryland women's basketball team will hit the road this weekend for a two-game swing in North Carolina. The Terps (18-3, 9-1 ACC) will take on Wake Forest Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem.

The Terps-Demon Deacons game will be shown live on RSN, which includes Comcast SportsNet Plus locally, Fox Sports South, FS Florida, ESPN3.com, the Watch ESPN app and more. For the full list of where to watch, log on to http://theacc.co/RSN-MDWF020813.

Maryland has won 12 straight meetings over Wake Forest (10-12, 3-7). In last year's regular season meetings, Tianna Hawkins led the Terps to an 86-58 win with a program-record 24 rebounds and 18 points on Jan. 19 in College Park. The Terrapins beat the Deacons 73-58 in the ACC Semifinals in March.

Hawkins and Alyssa Thomas combined for 50 points Sunday in the Terps' 85-62 romp of Boston College at Comcast Center. Hawkins went 11-for-14 from the field for 26 points, including 19 in the second half, and six boards. Thomas added 24 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks to lead Maryland to its eighth straight win.

With her 966 career rebounds, Hawkins is now No. 4 on Maryand's all-time list. She needs three rebounds to surpass Terrapins legend Vicky Bullett. Marissa Coleman and Crystal Langhorne are the only players in program history to reach the 1,000-rebound plateau. Alicia DeVaughn is five blocks from the 100-mark. With Thomas' double-double Sunday, the Terrapins have notched 26 double-doubles this year, which matches their total from all of last year. Thomas dished 113 assists last year and has 116 already this season.

The Terps are No. 2 in the nation with their rebounding margin of +17.1, only to Liberty's +17.6. Hawkins and Thomas are Nos. 1 and 2 in the ACC in scoring and rebounding. Hawkins leads in scoring with 19.4 points per game and Thomas is just behind her with 16.9 points per game. Thomas leads in rebounding with 10.4 per contest and Hawkins is second with 10.0. Thomas is No. 2 in assists with 5.6 per game. According to STATS, Inc., no player in the NCAA or WNBA has averaged 15.0 points, 10.0 rebounds or 5.0 assists since 1999-00, which was the farthest that could be searched

They will head over to Durham to take on No. 4 Duke (20-1, 10-0) Monday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. The game will be shown nationally on ESPN2, ESPN3.com and the Watch ESPN app. The game will also be broadcast on the Terrapin Sports Radio Network and can be heard on 1300 AM and UMTerps.com.

    'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs.

    Every morning during crabbing season, you can see watermen gathering up their pots, collecting their catch, and putting the pots back in the water. What you cannot see is the problem: pots that have had their lines severed sit on the bay's bottom, sometimes never seen again, along with the crabs inside them.
