STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored 25 points to help No. 5 Maryland rout Penn State 89-53 on Wednesday night.

Brionna Jones scored 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Terrapins who won their sixth straight game.

Unbeaten on the road so far this season, Maryland (18-2, 7-1 Big Ten) looked right at home inside Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center. The Terrapins made 8 of 13 field goals to open a 21-12 first-quarter lead. Most of those makes rolled off the fingertips of Walker-Kimbrough who found her shot immediately. She had 12 points in the first quarter and 17 in the first half.

She made five of her first six shots for 12 first-quarter points and finished the first half with 17. Maryland led 39-24 at halftime but not before a Penn State surge that saw the Nittany Lions tie the game early in the second quarter. Four Penn State players combined to lead a 9-0 run to pull to a 21-21 tie four minutes in. But the Terrapins took the lead for good on a pair of Brianna Fraser free throws moments later. Fraser's makes sparked Maryland after a sluggish second-quarter start and the Terrapins took control with an 18-3 run.

Lindsey Spann led Penn State with 14 points while Teniya Page added 10 for the Nittany Lions.
