Marissa Coleman scored 21 points to lead 10th-ranked Maryland to an 88-50 victory over Gonzaga in the Paradise Jam tournament last night in Charlotte Amalie, U.S. Virgin Islands.
Crystal Langhorne added 13 points for the Terrapins (3-0), who had four players in double figures. Maryland outrebounded Gonzaga, 54-31.
"It started with our rebounding," said Maryland Coach Brenda Frese. "You're going to see a different scorer every night with all the weapons we have."
Katy Ridenour scored 13 points for the Bulldogs (1-2), who were held to just 34 percent shooting.
Maryland center Laura Harper fell hard into the stands while fighting for a loose ball, injuring the back of her neck. She got up slowly several minutes later, and held her neck on the bench for the rest of the game.
Frese said the team would evaluate the injury in the morning to see if the 6-foot-4 sophomore would play against No. 9 Michigan State today.
Maryland built a 48-19 halftime lead.
