No.9 Terps DESTROY No.10 South Carolina

Stephanie Jones scored 18 points and Channise Lewis had 10 points and a career high 12 assists to lead No. 9 Maryland to an 85-61 win over No. 10 South Carolina on Sunday night.

The Terrapins (4-0) fell behind 18-6 as the Gamecocks blitzed them in the first five minutes. But Maryland then went on a 26-1 run, scoring on 12 of their next 15 possessions.

After Lewis’ 3-pointer on the first possession of the second half put Maryland up 48-26, the Terps turned the ball over nine times in the period.

But South Carolina (2-1) missed all six of its 3-pointers in the quarter and could only knock eight points of Maryland’s lead.

Mikiah Herbert Harrigan scored 14 points and Te’a Cooper added 11 for the Gamecocks.

Kaila Charles scored 17 points and 10 rebounds to hit 1,000 career points and 500 career rebounds. Freshman Shakira Austin added 10 points and 16 rebounds.

Next, the Terrapins will travel to San Juan, Puerto Rico to play in the Puerto Rico Clasico tournament over Thanksgiving. They will take on Morgan State (1-2) Friday and No. 14 Georgia ( 2-1) Saturday. Both games will be played at noon ET and will be streamed live online here.
