Maryland’s young basketball team appears to have finally grown up. Alyssa Thomas had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and the 15th-ranked Terrapins had four other players score in double figures Sunday in an 88-65 victory over No. 10 North Carolina. It was Thomas’ fourth double in her first five ACC games. Coach Brenda Frese knew it would take a while for a team with six freshmen and not a single senior to play at its best. Judging by Maryland’s performance against the Tar Heels, that time is now. “You could see our confidence this game at an all-time high,” Frese said. “You’re starting to see a team coming together. … This is a great opportunity for us to gain momentum with what we’re doing.” Diandra Tchatchouang scored 13, Lynetta Kizer and Alicia DeVaughn each had 12, and Laurin Mincy added 10 points for the Terrapins (16-3, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Some interesting stat lines: Terps shot 92% from the line Terps outrebounded Carolina 55-32 The Terps still had 28 turnovers. When they can get the turnovers under control, the sky is the limit for this Terrapin team.
