CATONSVILLE, MD., JAN. 20 -- Lisa Brown and Vicky Bullett combined for 43 points to lead 14th-ranked Maryland past University of Maryland-Baltimore County, 82-60, tonight at the UMBC Field House.
Maryland (12-3) trailed once, 16-15, then got its transition game rolling. A 24-6 spree produced a 39-21 halftime lead.
With Bullett (21 points, 11 rebounds) posting up and scoring over smaller players and with Brown (22 points, seven assists) in a rhythm from the outside, the Terrapins were too dominant for UMBC (7-8, four-game winning streak ended) in the second half.
UMBC, with freshman Felice Pinkney providing 19 points and 10 rebounds, surprisingly outrebounded Maryland, 32-29, but the Terrapins' overall quickness and shooting (30 of 49 from the field, 22 of 27 from the stripe) told.
