No. 5 Maryland beats No. 17 Michigan State 85-76
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored 30 points, Brionna Jones had 17 points and 17 rebounds, and No. 5 Maryland defeated No. 17 Michigan State 85-76 Friday night for its ninth straight victory.
Coming off a 41-point performance at Purdue, Walker-Kimbrough came up with a satisfying encore. The 5-foot-11 junior guard went 9 for 16 from the floor, 3 for 3 from beyond the arc and made all nine of her foul shots.
Though Walker-Kimbrough's effort at Purdue was one point short of the school record, her 71 points is the most ever by a Maryland women's player over two successive games.
The Terrapins (21-2, 10-1 Big Ten) never trailed in moving into a tie atop the conference standings with Ohio State.
Maryland will face the Buckeyes on Monday night, looking to avenge an 85-80 defeat on Jan. 2.
