The University of Maryland women’s basketball team held off a feisty Boston College squad Monday night at Silvio O. Conte Forum, using the late-game composure and skill of the senior duo of Kristi Toliver and Marissa Coleman, to post an 85-81 win over the Eagles.
Toliver, ACC Player of the Week for her heroics against Virginia Tech, scored 19 points with seven assists, picking up a loose ball and hitting a 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down in the final minute, to lead No. 11 Maryland to its third straight win. Coleman scored a season-high 23 points and added seven rebounds, five assists and four steals as Maryland (19-4, 7-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) won its eighth straight over Boston College (17-7, 5-4).
The Lady Terps get a chance to avenge their conference loss to UVA, this Thursday at 7PM at the Comcast Center.
