COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Alyssa Thomas had 19 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, and No. 10 Maryland cranked up the defense in a 94-46 rout of Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored 13 and freshman Brionna Jones added 12 for the Terrapins, who limited Pittsburgh to 31 percent shooting and allowed only 21 first-half points. Maryland (18-4, 6-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) has won two in a row after dropping three straight.

The Terrapins scored the first 16 points of the second half to take a 61-21 lead. After Loliya Briggs hit a 3-pointer for Pittsburgh (10-13, 2-7), Maryland added another 12 points to make it 73-24.

Before sitting out the final 12 minutes, Thomas moved into sole possession of third place on the school's career list with 2,097 points.

Briggs led Pittsburgh with 10 points. Guard Brianna Kiesel, who came in averaging 17.5 points a game, was limited to five on 2-for-8 shooting.
