No. 8 Maryland Women Beat No. 10 UNC 79-70

Posted:

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Alyssa Thomas had 21 points and 14 rebounds, and No. 8 Maryland beat No. 10 North Carolina 79-70 on Sunday in the Terrapins' final ACC opener.

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough added 16 points, Katie Rutan had 14 points and four 3-pointers and Thomas polished off her 13th consecutive double-double to help the Terps (13-1, 1-0 ACC) win their 11th straight.

Big Ten-bound Maryland led for all but about 90 seconds of this one but let much of an 18-point lead slip away before holding on to win its toughest test since a 72-55 loss to No. 1 Connecticut two months ago.

Stephanie Mavunga scored 15 points, Latifah Coleman had 13 and Diamond DeShields finished with 12 for the Tar Heels (12-3, 0-1).

With Hall of Fame coach Sylvia Hatchell watching from a sideline television platform for the second straight game, UNC had its seven-game win streak snapped.
